I am nearly positive I have OCD. Any online survey I've taken always rates me far above the mark of 'probably having' OCD. The parent I live with agrees and acknowledges it, but I've never been diagnosed. I was wondering if you thought I should be diagnosed and get help. It definitely affects my life and my thoughts quite a bit, but not enough that it impairs me. I know it's not curable, but would getting help really make a difference or make my life more bearable? Thank you for any advice!

Hey there, yes you should go and see a health professional to get diagnosed and get some help because OCD is something that gets worse untreated and as you said affects your life, it would make life alot more bearable, cause when treated OCD eases of its hold and makes it easier to breath and live, it won’t process but it will be worth it i promise, stay strong.<3

Thank you so much for answering my question! I'd never talked to anyone about it before. I had no idea that it was an actual disorder and I thought I was alone in doing what I did. I've been looking into trich and I'm going to try to stop. Thanks!

Hi. I've had a problem for a couple years in which I compulsively pull out some of my eyelashes. I know this is weird, and I want to stop, but anytime I look in a mirror they bother me and I feel the need to 'fix' them. They seem to irritate me visually and physically. Could this be OCD-related? I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to help myself stop. :/ Thank you!

This is called trichotilomania, which is related to OCD.

What does CBT mean? (;_;)
lieflotje asked

CBT stands for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and it is seen as the most effective type of therapy to treat OCD (and other mental disorders too).
There is a great video on it here, but I will go over the basics of what I understand.

  • CBT combines ideas from both the cognitive and the behavioural perspectives of psychology.
  • Behaviourism was founded in the 1930s and it focused only on people’s behaviour as it was the only thing that could be scientifically measured.
  • The cognitive perspective started in the 1980s and it was more concerned with people’s thoughts behind their behaviour and altering these thought processes.
  • CBT combines these two aspects and looks at both people’s behaviour and their thoughts.

I hope that explains it a little clearer lovely, if you need anything else don’t hesitate to ask :)

Hi! I am 99 percent recovered from ocd, and this is how I did it. Type in mark freeman ocd on youtube and watch his videos about ocd recovery. I suggest if you're struggling you give it a try!! His videos were the main things that helped me recover!
