Don’t tell anyone what goes through your mind in case they lock you away

Don’t be around children in case you hurt them.

Don’t think those thoughts in case you act on them.

Don’t tell anyone what goes through your mind in case they lock you away.

OCD is a dictator. It is not a friend. We believe that we carry out our compulsions to keep us safe or others safe but the reality is that we make our lives a misery.

There is hope though, the dictator can be overthrown. With intensive CBT/ERP combined with mindfulness I now dictate what I do and when I do it. I am no longer bullied by a tyrant in my mind.
