What Do I Do?

I have had OCD so long, its a constant part of my life. So trying to change that is hard, but its also hard to know how to spend my time, how to live a life without OCD, how to be myself now. OCD was all i knew for so long, the world seems so crazy, coming from my bubble. Its hard to figure out how to get back into it. Anyone else know the feeling?

Yeah, I don't think that I realized how much time ocd took up, because I'm not fully treated yet but just imagining how much time that I will have is overwhelming, let alone what happens when you actually get there. And it's not like you can ask questions about how to act well normal. Overwhelmingness!

yes i have lived with ocd since i was very young getting better has been a process of time and working with my meds to help overcome ocd thinking i have good day and sometimes not so good days but i am much better than before i would take it a day at a time ,get therapy if you need it and proceed in a positive way . you will see it is all a process i have a book i use as well called Obessive Compulsive Disorders by Fred Penzel phd . vinny

yrs i have ocd and feel like i lost a part of myself due to the illness i am ok now but there is no cure for ocd i use meds every day a book thathas helped me is Obessive Compulsive Disorders by Fred Penzel phd
