With OCD there are good days and sometimes there are bad days. The good days are easy to get through, it’s the bad days that make it seem impossible to deal with having OCD. A couple of days ago I was having one of my worst days in a while. No matter what I did it seemed I was adding a ritual to it. Brushing my teeth, getting out of the shower, picking out clothes….. No matter what. By the end of the day I was so emotionally and physically drained that I just couldn’t do anything anymore. Now those days are going to happen, I know it and you know it. It is not trying to prevent those days, but how you react to those days. Instead of just going with the motion and letting the OCD control me, I should have stopped, done my breathing exercise for nothing else, but take a break from it. When you have those days try not to just go with the flow, but really try to stop and think about what you are doing.
