A Day In The Life Of OCD

Ever wondered what it's like living with OCD? Here's an hourly breakdown of what it can be like to have to share your mind with a horrible roommate like OCD. 

Note: This is simply one person's experience. Every individual with OCD experiences it in their own unique way. What they all share is a level of anxiety so intense that it creates rituals & compulsions as an escape route. Unfortunately, those routes are only short-term fixes that don't solve the larger problem. The good news is that there are evidence-based treatments - cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) & exposure/response prevention (ERP) - that can help someone with OCD learn to manage their symptoms.
