You have worked hard to cure your OCD. The advice is good, I fought back against my OCD doing similar things
Very important method I used here is "NON CO-OPERATION MOVEMENT". i.e., When I was stuck in thoughts and thoughts are bombarding then I stopped attending to the thought. For example, if the thought is to wash the hands, then no matter what I stopped to attend that thought. When you dont attend the compulsive thought, after some time, the compulsion reduces and it will b normal. .
I did this, I refused to co-operate.
For instance I felt something bad would happen if I did not get dressed, undressed and dressed again at least three times in the morning, it was exhausting and time consuming as you can imagine.
Then I started to refuse to do it I changed my thoughts to believe the opposite, that;
'something bad would happen' if I got dressed three times.
I applied this theory to everything, forcing myself to act 'normal'
It takes time and persistence, but it works.
Now my OCD only exerts itself rarely when I am very stressed, like if I've got a job interview. At times like that I use my non co-operation movement to regain control.
Physical exercise is a great help apart from getting fit, it;
It pumps up your endorphins. Physical activity helps to bump up the production of your brain's feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins
Kudos to you for managing to take control of your life its not easy but you and I have shown
IT CAN BE DONE!
