    I have OCD because im paranoid my phscyo ex girlfriend might harm me
    I have a ritual of "Blocking her"
    Now, what I actually have to do to feel bettter is just trust my self to tell her to **** off when she tries to talk to me
    Unforutnately, OCD is relatively un forgiving and persistent
    Would appreciate some brutal advice

    Have you seen extreme ocd camp? Have a look at that and try to apply their tactics to deal with your ocd.

    Hi.

    I know how seriously seriously seriously annoying (putting it lightly) OCD can be.

    Do you see anyone about it? Or have you been to the doctor? I couldn't deal with counselling as everyone I saw was useless and I've had bad experiences with that. But my OCD has gotten so bad at times I had to be on drugs (which I hated but they helped).

    If not you may want to find a self-counselling book or something (recommend one that uses CBT). As that is one of the only things I found that was helpful and that I could stick at.

    Everyone is different though. So try different options until you find what works. I know people who found counselling very beneficial.

    Hope things get better!

    My system of treatment for my self is to abandon my rituals and simply accept my obssessions and channeling them into postivie thoguhts instead of rituals

    I think I should Avoid this person - So I will
    Not I think I should Avoid this person - So I will perform X ritual to ensure that happens

    I can't really relate to what you're going through. I think a strict routine might help you 'manage' your life. For example, wake up, go to work, come back home, go for a run, sleep.

    About your ex-girlfriend, I would just cut off communication entirely and block block block. Hopefully one day the message will get through to her that you no longer want anything to do with her.

    Unforutnately the point is BLOCKING is the problem

    OCD is a disease where your so dertimined to make something happen (in this case cuttin g off ties) that you go insane just to do it

    The solution =

    Letting go/Trust yourself!
