Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a manifestation of deep anxiety.
It is a need to find some form of control where one feels completely out of control. The mind takes over as a bully, endlessly harassing and pushing, and at the base, a total lack of trust in the self and all around.
The experience of OCD is overwhelming and frightening, and recovery is a gentle path, watching how the mind twists and turns, always finding new ways to attach to a new layer of mis-trust and overt control.
Ritual and ceremony in recovery can really help, affirmation, self-parenting and working with the underlying trust and anxiety issues brings real change.
