Everything is going to be OK. It may be tough at times but it will be OK
You are not crazy or sick. You have a condition which can be managed
No one is normal and you are as good as everyone else
OCD is a long term condition but, with coping skills, it need not stop you doing anything you want in life
You will need to learn coping skills and keep practicing these
Many successful people have OCD including business leaders, actors, musicians, singers, artists, etc. You are in good company
OCD means that you may feel emotions more strongly than others - this is OK
In order to manage your OCD you will need to learn how to tolerate discomfort (mainly emotional) and not try to get rid of it
In order to manage your OCD you will need to make sure you work hard on doing tasks for yourself
Working on your OCD will be really beneficial for your life in general
We are here to support you (but not to do things for you!)
