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.
i'm not a perfectionist im actully prety laid back until i get worried and start obsessing
