OCD is comprised of obsessions and compulsions. Recovery from OCD and anxiety is about creating a new relationship with anxiety. It is about viewing and embracing anxiety as a good thing. Even though it seems counterintuitive, in order to recover we must immerse ourselves in that anxious feeling and not respond in an anxious manner to it as we always have. This creates new neural pathways in our brain, which ultimately leads to our freedom. Getting anxious and uncomfortable is a very good thing in the recovery process.
