I have learned that it can be hard to break the cycle of OCD. To me, at least. That is the hardest part. First, I have to realize and have the confidence that I can break the cycle of OCD. I can deal with the thoughts and even the compulsions though they can be annoying. I realize that if I can remove the doubt, then I can be set free from the obsessions and compulsions. I would love for the thoughts to be like water on a duck's back. However that has yet to happen.
