Can you outgrow OCD?
I dun know if someone has covered this in the past, but now that I came to this forum and read the symptoms I beleive I did have it when I was younger, but can you outgrow it? Again sorry if someone already talked about this! Thanks!

Im sure you can...sometimes the compulsions will be stronger and sometimes hardly noticable so gradly for some it might only be a short term thing where as other will need outside help to get better...

Id say all mental illnesses are on a spectrum, as in they are more or less severe, and you can get better or worse.

So yeah you can 'outgrow' most mental llness, including OCD.

I think mental illness is an normal reaction to a crazy world.

I have had ocd for 3 yrs. but i do believe that it can get to a point were it might go away.

I have OCD but I have gone from washing my hands 165 times in one sitting to rarley ever more than 6. I will admit I did take pills for a little while and I did see a special doctor but I found that I was able to get over it without them. They just showed me the right path. So for your question I don't think you can physically outgrow OCD but you can do it mentally.
