Hello everyone, I hope your week has been a fantastic one. Hopefully you had very little stress and lots of laughter.
I also hope you made special time for yourself, whether it be a few minutes or a few hours. Any amount of “me” time is great for the mind.
This week I treated myself to a pedicure. I haven’t done this in a while. It felt so nice to just relax while being pampered, especially considering the week I had.
The past couple of weeks I have been working on my OCD. I mentioned in another post that the most effective type of therapy in treating OCD is called C.B.T and the best type of C.B.T is called E.R.P.
I went against my own advice and tried E.R.P by myself (again) without a licensed therapist. Only because right now I am in the middle of finding yet another therapist. If you want to know more about E.R.P, click here: https://iocdf.org/about-ocd/ocd-treatment/erp/
Basically what I did was I tried to resist giving in to my OCD. I tried doing things once instead of repeatedly. Of course this caused such unpleasant feelings, terrifying fear, and my anxiety was terrible.
The last two weeks have been hard on me. Trying to fight OCD and not give in has been terribly stressful.
Anyway, I wrote about it and I’m just about finished and will be posting it over the weekend. So please let me know what you think after you get a chance to read it.
Speaking of the weekend, I hope you have an excellent one. If you try something new or step outside of your comfort zone, tell me in the comments. If you stay in and have “me” time, I want to hear about that too. Just try to laugh, love, and do what makes you happy.
Enjoy the weekend!
