ERP Success StoriesMay 19, 2023
I was terrified of doing ERP.
The thought of exposing myself to my fears was terrifying. I was afraid that I would learn that my fears and doubts were true, or that my feared situation would actually happen. I also remember thinking that saying my thoughts out loud over and over again would cause me to believe them, but I soon learned that this is because I was so used to running from discomfort, so facing it was understandably uncomfortable.
As soon as I started ERP, I felt better.
I was skeptical, but as soon as I used the exposure technique that my specialist gave me, my discomfort dropped. I was really surprised at how well it worked, and while I wasn't perfect at it, each time I used it, my discomfort faded into the background.
It took time, and there were a few things I had to learn about the techniques to ensure they worked properly, but they started to work every time I used them. The more I practiced, the better I got at it. And...after some time, my brain even started using them on it's own!
ERP worked as consistently with other people too.
I became an Anxiety & OCD Recovery Coach in 2019 because I saw so many people who struggled and I knew I could help. I'd learned A LOT about OCD, and I'd used the recovery tools enough to learn them very well. They're really not complicated (there are only a handful of necessary techniques), and I made it my life's purpose to get other people to the recovery stage too.
As I started coaching, I wasn't 100% sure if everyone would experience the same results I did, at first. As time went on, I started to see that ERP worked every time, when done properly and consistently. I was pleasantly surprised, and over the last 5 years, I have yet to see ERP not work (again, when done properly).
I have a ton of success stories.
I talk to people every day who are getting better, so many of my success stories are etched in my daily experiences. Just today in my membership community, someone posted "I never thought I'd say this, but my ROCD is pretty much gone, I think! I haven’t had any symptoms with this subset in about 2 months!" Also today..."I must say a lot of the smaller fears and obsessions I've had with certain sensorimotor things and some repetitive intrusive thoughts that I was convinced would never go away have really resolved a lot."
I will share a link to my website which will give you over 50 written and video testimonials of how well ERP & my recovery programs have worked for them, and this is just a small amount of the success stories I've had. These are brave ones, people willing to put themselves out there and be vulnerable enough to share their OCD stories.
But what if I've tried? Can I really do it?
My OCD was debilitating, drastically affecting my health, work, sleep, relationships and more. If I can do it, anyone can. If you've struggled to get better, if you've tried ERP without success, don't give up. I've talked to a lot of people who didn't learn it effectively or have enough support. It works, when you learn it properly, use it consistently, and make it a mental habit. Lifetime recovery is possible!
