Then It returns badly for ages..its like cycles...

What I see on my good days no longer comforts me when it gets bad again 

I can see it in better proportion on the good days....but the bad..theres no stopping it, it blows up and nothing reassures me.

On the bad days I'm certain it's all my fault and I did something bad and can't escape the guilt.

The good days I get a bit of 'hope'...hope that it's illness...I see myself as maybe a victim of the illness and things seem smaller. 

But it builds up...and never stays away.

Any advice on how to keep having 'good days'

I understand this completely and it happens to me too. Sorry to hear you're struggling.

Ok, but let me ask. What do you do during the good days to ensure OCD does not return?

I think you should be happy that you are having good days. That's an improvement over where you were.

Hi there, the bad days are returning unfortunately :( but I have just had a thought, OCD makes you feel like you could act on a thought even though you don't want to. So I'm thinking thats what happened to me. It felt so real...yet I'm not intending to do it.

I am trying to keep positive it's hard work though.

Therapy on Monday.

Oh....I got engaged yesterday! So I want to feel happy and not let this monster ruin my life.

Its a hard one to beat when it catches you off guard and you begin you hate yourself for being either careless, cocky or tricked.

Congratulations on your engagement. Use such occasions as the driving force behind working on getting yourself better, so you can truly enjoy the moments. Hope your therapy goes well on Monday.
