My 13 year old daughter, Alexandra, has been diligently working with the Live OCD Free app for the past 3 months. During this short time, with much work and determination, she has achieved remarkable progress against her, previously omnipresent, OCD symptoms! 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. Remarkably, Alexandra can now walk anywhere and touch almost everything freely. 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. 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.
Alexandra wants nothing more than to lead a revolution against this insidious, debilitating monster we call OCD! To help others see how much hope there is with proper treatment, Alex is documenting her progression through recovery.
“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.”
