    The most effective way to treat OCD is a combination between CBT and medication. During practice CBT, I learned some techniques to deal with my OCD.

    ERP and ACT are usually recommended for OCD, its about being accepting that the OCD is there and will do its thing while exposing yourself(usually with a therapist trained in it) strategically to triggers where you can confront the anxiety and show your brain the anxiety around those thoughts arent necessary. Works from small triggers to the bigger ones. There are loads of educational videos online to see if its different from what youre doing already. Besides that, holding your values above your anxiety is a key way to orienting your mindset to better manage your OCD. Hope this helps!

    Its been very difficult for me to even admit i have ocd and i think that made things difficult but now that im slowly accepting im noticing alot of new obsessions coming up.
