Understanding how rOCD works

I truly believe that in order to get better from rOCD, we need to understand how rOCD works. A good analogy would be us going to an amusement park for the first time as a child and ending up trying  out the haunted house. Very scary experience! But once you understand that  these things aren’t real and you know when the scary bits show up your fear factor decreases considerably. After a couple of rides we are not scared anymore or as much as before.

So it is with rOCD. Once we understand the sequence of events and what triggers them then we are better equipped to feel less anxious, depressed, negative, and hopeless.
