its all based on having some sort of control. and although it sounds easy to break... its really not beause the anxiety you feel is soooo insanely strong. there are only a few ways to break it... seeing an ocd specialist or meds... and meds typically wont eliminate it all. its all about knowing that you dont have control over everything but what you do have control over is the ocd. i take baby steps with mine because im not ready to face the fears so much which is what most ocd specialists will have you do... facing the fears head on. if you dont get help with it you will probably end up dealing with it your entire life which i know isnt something that anyone would want to do.

To win the respect of intelegent people and the affection of children, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch... to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is too have SUCCEEDED! - Emerson
