Help! – I Need OCD Help!
OCD is the commonly referred to acronym for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, a condition that can take over a life and make it virtually impossible to live. The crucial thing for someone suffering this illness is where one can get specialist OCD help.
The first logical step is your physician, who may be able to introduce you to local support groups, where other sufferers, and trained professionals meet periodically, and can also offer networking support. This means that if you are having a particularly bad day, you can contact other members, via voluntary participation of a telephone number exchange.
This could lead to someone else contacting you for support, which is actually less scary than it sounds. Remember everyone is different, so we all have new ideas of how to tackle a particular problem, you may just have found a solution to one issue that someone else is really struggling with. A very positive step if you can actually offer OCD help to someone in the same situation as you
Make Use Of The World-Wide-Web.
The Internet has rapidly become the centre of modern living. A search engine will be able to offer you a wealth of pages that may prove to be invaluable on your quest for OCD help. There you will find virtual support networks that may be a lifesaving link to the outside world if you have problems with social situations, a common issue for many OCD patients.
You will find others who have chosen to make their stories public, in the form of blogs; again they may be able to offer you help when you need it most. Also out there are numerous publications from books to magazines, that you can buy or subscribe too – further proof that you are not alone, OCD help in itself!
Consider Those Around You As A Source Of Help.
On a good day, when you are feeling more positive about your issues, try describing the problems as you see them to someone you trust and are happy to accept help from. Agree, that from now on, they will be the voice of reason. The next time you feel the need to check the door is locked, they will calmly tell you ‘The door is locked, I locked it and your trust me’ to which you will repeat ‘the door is locked, you locked it, I trust you. It doesn’t matter how many times you have to repeat that to each other, if it means you have checked one less time that day – that’s a break-through!
Whatever method of OCD help you choose, it will soon become evident that you are not alone and there is a huge vault of information and help out there
