      @Lily_Lys Definitely try to look out for therapists that specialize in areas you need help with. They’ll have enough experience to truly help and understand how you feel

      Actually no, not with medication either. I’ve been on plenty of psych meds to treat OCD and it came with horrific side effects that I sometimes still have problems with today. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Psychotherapy are mainly used to help treat this disorder but I have trouble with it because I understand how the therapy works so I can’t trick myself into thinking a different way. I am way too aware of my thoughts and how this type of therapy works. I just want to Pavlov myself but I can’t lol

      It took awhile to find a good therapist, but after that it 100% helped

        @Onyxxx I had a therapist who wasn't ready to treat me and I think if anything it made things worse. I've been nervous to try and find another. Is there things I should look for?
