"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." -Plato
It always helps to hear others who suffer with OCD share their victories and insights, however small or great they happen to be. It gives us encouragement, hope and the will to keep moving forward with our own efforts to gain control over the OCD bully.
From the book: Confronting the Bully of OCD
Note: An OCD support group can be of help along these lines. If there is not one in your local area, check for some online ones. You might even consider starting one.
