    Have you ever heard of W.R.A.P. by Mary Ellen Copeland. It could help you maybe.

    Sounds good to me! I’d also like to add, for readers who are not aware, that Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP)therapy is the front line treatment for OCD. A component of ERP therapy involves refraining from performing compulsions, so perhaps your advice could be incorporated into this therapy, Elaina. So many people don’t realize that OCD, no matter how severe, is treatable!
