Overcoming OCD

Welcome to my blog! πŸ™‚ I’m really glad you to have you here.

So, a couple of words about myself: I’m a 27 years old guy from Central Europe – from a place where OCD is not really well understood by the people and where it’s a taboo to speak about this topic.

The reason why I’ve started this blog is because I’d love to help others by sharing my OCD experiences – as I’ve been suffering from it for the past 15 years. And also for helping myself as I do think that it’s time to come out and to be proud of having OCD!

The world nowadays is becoming more and more open-minded and there’re a lot of minorities who come out of the dark and who tell others about their values, culture and experiences, but people with OCD are pretty much hiding: most of the people think that Obsessive Compulsive Disorder means a kind of cleaning obsession.

OCD makes us suffer and it can be a torture, but let’s be proud of ourselves, of our personalities and our mistakes because these are the things that make us the person who we are! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you very much for your comment. It’s such a great feeling that there are people out there who understand me and whom I can help by sharing my stories. But then at the same time it is also pretty sad because I see that a lot of people are suffering from this terrifying condition 😦 – Let’s hope all of us will be able to overcome it one day! πŸ™‚
      And indeed: we should be proud of who we are and unfortunately, OCD is also a part of is (even if we do not like it).
      I’m also looking to your future posts.
