I’m so glad the treatment was effective for you! I’ve done a lot of exposure/ response prevention and CBT and my symptoms have decreased dramatically, but it seems like something new pops up as you said, when I’m under mental strain or life is very stressful. Or my symptoms become worse again. It’s very frustrating, as I’m sure you know — and yes, cruel. My husband is SO supportive but it’s inevitable that it will take a toll on the relationship.

Thanks for reading and commenting. I wish you peace.
