Her OCD had forced her into seclusion, isolation, and painful 4 hour ritualistic decontamination showers and had even left her unable to touch those she loves.
To help others see how much hope there is with proper treatment, Alex is documenting her progression through recovery.
Regular updates to Alex's progress will be posted to our Blog "OCD: Real Stories, Real Help." "Alex is truly one of the bravest young OCD sufferers I have ever met, and I will be eternally grateful for the gift of hope she offers." -- Dr.
She can hug and spend time with loved-ones and friends without decontaminating.
Ali's showers are now only 25-minutes and do not involve any painful rituals.
Kristen Mulcahy I believe I have had OCD since the age of 5. I started using the Live OCD Free app after a stay at an intensive residential treatment program.
The app has helped me maintain the progress I made while there and has helped me to continue to make progress. For less than the cost of one therapy session, you can have a great self-help tool if you are unable to get help from a specialist.I know it sounds funny, but it's almost like I don't want to let it down.Having an assignment to do helps me to work on my exposure challenges.It allows me to actively fight against my OCD in between visits with my therapist. I still have work to do, but the Live OCD Free app is a helpful tool that has kept me on track.With regular usage of the app, one will feel the reduction in symptoms of OCD week after week.Moreover, it is a do it yourself kit which is economical and wise.She continues to work to conquer her remaining OCD issues and anticipates, in time, a full recovery from the OCD which has plagued her since the age of four.-- Lisa, North Carolina Click on the graphic below to learn about Alexanda's story on You Tube: Alexandra wants nothing more than to lead a revolution against this insidious, debilitating monster we call OCD!Thank you for this app as I am happier, leading a life of my dreams as I am experiencing lesser OCD symptoms!My control on OCD has been far better after the usage of this app.
