FULL RECOVER FROM HOCD

Postby saveconi on Tue Nov 10, 2009 10:45 am

Is it really possible to fully recover from HOCD?
I mean 100% recovery with no more spikes and libido fully again at usual pre-disease level?

You have to accept that there is no cure for ocd. It can be treated very effectively and minimized to the point where it has no significant effect on your life. So yes your libido will come back completely and yes you wont be bothered by hocd thoughts anymore, but this doesnt mean you wont get the occasional mild spike. I still get the occasional mild spike but I've learned in therapy the tools needed to let them go without paying them any attention.

I just seen a transformers movie with Megan Fox and I couldn't believe how freakin hot she is! It made me wonder how the hell there was a time that I actually worried that I might not want that!

actually, in a sense, you actually can 100% remove the OCD.

for example, i have had SOO many other types of OCD similar to HOCD. and once i got rid of them i felt so stupid for having them in the first place, the same happens with HOCD

I'm much better than 8 months ago when I was seriously depressed and saw a psychiatrist about HOCD. However, I still have "HOCD days" (as I like to call them) every 2-3 weeks. There was also a period recently when I was literally terrified of an attractive guy in my class- I used to get physically ill when he was in my line of sight. However, that has largely subsided.

My interest in pursuing girls has returned, but unfortunately still not completely to pre-HOCD levels. I've had a hard time approaching girls all my life, and my love life has always been below average. Now I'm a bit depressed I can't find a girlfriend, lol.

I'm also worried about having sex again. I haven't been laid in 6+ months, which I think helped subside my HOCD fears. HOCD was killing my performance in the sack (I could get it up easy but I couldn't cum!) and this only helped feed my fears. I'm worried if I get with a girl the same problem will occur again.

I strongly recommend exercise, it helped me a lot. Although, at one point when my HOCD was extreme I couldn't even go to the gym, too many muscle guys! Now, it doesn't really bother me too much, and now I think- "I wish I looked more like him so that girls would find me more attractive. I guess it's time to up my squat this week"

99.9% I know for sure. I went from suicidal in February to having months with zero HOCD. The max HOCD that I get lately is a week or 2 every 3-4 months and at a MAX level of 3 out of 10. In fact, when the thoughts come, I know for sure they're fake and bullshit. They just are a bit annoying for that week or 2.
