After challenging, managing and living life in spite of ocd, I have come to a clear conclusion of how I view the disorder. My image of ocd is not one of a beast or monster or even evil. It’s clear to me that ocd is a four-year-old bully kicking and screaming and wanting its way no matter what. So the question is: would you ever listen to a four-year old bully and do what it says?. Believe me, I know it’s tough, I know it’s hard, I know it’s riddled with anxiety - but you need to be the adult in the room no matter what age you may be. Keep that image in your mind – a four year old bully. Be the adult in the room. JC <3 ... See MoreSee Less
