Single Status Update
I am under lots of stress with family and financial issues and with planning to move house at the moment, which might be making my OCD worse.

Stress is a big factor in making our OCD worse. See if you can look at each of those things stressing you, break them down and find a workable strategy. I find looking at all and noting down possible solutions, however unlikely, helps - sometimes the right solution then jumps out and I can implement it.
If you need help on any, consult with trusted family or friends - maybe post a topic in the member's area, central perk - and hopefully someone will have some knowledge or experience that may be helpful.
Your right BelAnna, stress and personal issues do tend to have a negative impact on our OCD.
Roy as given you some good advice by breaking them down and seeing them as separate issues rather than as a whole, they become easier to cope with.
Thinking of you and hope things settle down for you soon x
Thanks so much SB21, Taurean and Lostinme! x
Taurean, the problem-solving sounds like a great idea!
