This week we can put into practice most of that we've pointed out in this blog...
1- Face the OCD bully in your head - the way we would face a real bully we are fed up with.
2- Talk back to the OCD bully by daring the bully to do the fearful thing. Ex: Go ahead - make my day!
4- Do something the OCD bully is telling you not to do (step on a crack - wear a certain color - touch something - drive somewhere - travel on a train or bus, etc.) Do it and enjoy it.
And throughout the week - treat yourself nice. Buy yourself a little gift. Eat a special treat. Get pampered with a manicure. Have a warm soothing bath at home. Buy yourself flowers, a new DVD, or a new accessory like a tie, sunglasses, a pocketbook, or key chain.
