I am not just OCD

kirstie-no-textI have been affected by OCD since the age of 5 and through being tormented by intrusive thoughts of being contaminated, contaminating others and fears of losing loved ones through the consequences of my own actions; it was getting hard to see the real me underneath this label which had been given to me.

Though this label helped me understand my behaviour and seek help, it consumed me. OCD dominated my life for years, I was getting completely lost under the darkness of it all.

OCD has completely tried to destroy me on many an occasion but I’m not going to let it overtake my life again. CBT has taught me how to overcome and deal with the OCD. I am finally recognising who I am and realising that ‘I am not just OCD’.
