Default Re: Can OCD go away?

Well, call me picky here, but are you sure you have TRUE OCD? As in diagnosed by a doctor? Being 'fussy' or 'perfectionistic' isn't actually a mental disorder. There's a diff btw'n something that's caused by personality, and something that's caused by brain chemistry. One you have control over, the other is beyond that.

So, if it's TRUE OCD, then there's medications and therapies that control it and help the person manage it. There's no 'cure' as in fix, there's effective, ongoing treatment which minimizes the impact of the symptoms.
