  1. If it's still bothering you, eleven months later, you really need to go see a therapist. You don't have to suffer like this. PolarBear's right, this is a compulsion. A band-aid/quick fix, that's only keeping you stuck. It's not helping. You say it does, but here you are, a year later, still doing it. Please, go get help.

    Thanks, guys. I don't want to talk about it here, but I appreciate your condolences and advice. I'm sorry if I seem brusque.

    I think my ocd went into overdrive after the sudden loss of my uncle last April. It was extremely hard on me, and I’m still stuffing down emotion. Do you think that dealing with that, in a healthy way, could help my ocd?

    Oh, thank you!
  7. Goodbye! Best of luck with your recovery! I know you can do it!

    @PolarBear I want to apologize to you specifically, since we're.... not the best of friends. I'm sorry for how I've treated you in the past. It was unfair, you were only trying to help, and I apologize. I can see now, the wisdon and truth in your words. I've taken your advice, to me and others, to heart. I'm hoping we can bury the hatchet, and become either friends, friendly, or, at least, civil. - Ship

    I haven't but I want to. How was it?

    So what of you called someone a "noob". Gamers say way worse online, believe me. It's nothing you could get in trouble for. Let it go, stop compulsing, and move on. You're only hurting yourself.
  12. OCD Therapist As A Career?

    Thank you for the advice! I'll be honest, I didn't consider the stressors that would come with it. Thank you for pointing those out! I'll do some thinking, and only approach it once I truly feel recovered.
  13. I just had an ocd spike/breakdown, and I've decided something. I think I want to become an ocd therapist. This disorder can be hell, a waking nightmare, and I want to help others struggling. I think that this is my calling. To help people see the light, and recover. To maybe even save lives. Because nobody deserves this.

    I feel like this thread could do some good.
