Your story of struggle and the path to recovery can and will give a fellow sufferer the hope they need to continue, and the tools they need to succeed
The OCD Stories was set up to be that beacon of light in the moments of darkness we have all had to endure, as a result of OCD. The stories act not only as a light in their darkness, but also as a signpost out of it. This is only possible because of fellow sufferers such as yourself sharing their emotional, and educational stories towards recovery. Whether you are a million times better, or just starting your path of recovery, your story will give hope to those with little.
