Hello friends, a good Friday night story.  Twice this week I have had to go out to do some routine tasks.  Typically these tasks would have caused doubt and compulsion to check things over and over.  I remembered what I had learned in therapy - checking perpetuates checking and and raises the anxiety.  So I pushed myself, got ready, locked up and set off.  Yes, there was some anxiety but this soon reduced as I concentrated on the task ahead.

I am also learning that is is important to recognise these positive steps as small victories over OCD.

My friend is coming in the morning to take me shopping.  I am going to put some goodies on my shopping list to reward myself.   :clap:
