      I have OCD. Got diagnosed around 2007. I used to be obsessed to being clean to the point where I would take showers for almost an hour and a half. What snapped me out of it was that I just by chance happened to move to a new place. Being in a different environment helped me a lot. I still have OCD and something I've been thinking of doing was rearranging my room and we decorating it. Still the same place I live in, but if it looks like a different environment it helps me feel better if I feel safer like that. I was prescribed Celexa (Citalopram) and while it did help me a bit, it was the change of scenery that helped me. But I should also note that my old place was in a horrible environment where I felt unsafe both inside and outside my house. I lived in a really bad part of town and my OCD and being obsessed with being clean and very germophobic. I would go through bottles of rubbing alcohol because I wanted everything to be clean and germ free
