You are trying to cope the best you can, but you are either in denial about your anxiety/OCD or you are avoiding facing it. This is likely due to fear and the brain's excuses that keep you in your comfort zone, or a lack of knowledge or confidence with what type of help you should get. This is quite common, as there is A LOT of misinformation out there about OCD treatment. It is very common to seek help for OCD, but not get it, as less than 1% of therapists are trained to properly recognize or treat OCD.Solution: You CAN retrain your brain away from avoidance and resistance. You CAN learn the recovery skills, and getting support to help you do this is key! I know I needed it to overcome OCD!See stories of others who have overcome this exact same problem!
You recognize there's a problem, and you're ready to seek help, but you're not sure what the best recovery option is. You've likely done some research and have heard of ERP, but you may be scared of "facing your fears." Another common scenario is that you've tried ERP before, but you determined that it "didn't work for you." This is either because you didn't learn it properly, use it consistently enough, or you didn't have a good teacher. ERP works EVERY TIME, when done consistently and properly!See testimonials now to prove that Recovery Is Possible!!!
