THE MODERN WORLD OFFERS abundant resources for people who have the OCD. So much more is known about OCD now than was known even twenty-five years ago. For a great many OCD sufferers, new therapies and medications have made symptoms manageable and life bearable. There is also a lot of support available out there. “Out there” can mean a local in-person support group, but it can mean online communities, as well. Developing a strong support system of any kind is one of the most helpful things you can do for yourself.
