View Full Version : How do you all deal with your compulsions?

January 22nd, 2014, 03:08 PM
I know there isn't a simple answer but is there anything besides medication that might help to reduce the effects of OCD? Like I have really embarrassing habits that I do and at school it's hard to hide them. I don't know if someone has already posted something like this, but does anyone have any advice?

I never really liked the way meds made me feel. I have a lot of habits to but I've learned to deal and not be embarrassed.

One way I've managed to cope with the majority of my compulsions is to use some sort of negative reinforcement.
While I can't say it works for everyone, my friend swears electroshock therapy works. Personally I just used the classic rubber and technique.
Or a different look is to take time and positively point out to your self when you succeed in resisting an impulse. It's all mostly finding what works for you. Good luck.

:(I try to cope, but I can't.

Sometimes I cut and it helps....
