Thankful for my tribe

Recovery from OCD is not easy, but with the right support recovery really is a possibility. But, reaching the point of recovery and living with OCD can be incredibly hard and at times it will take us to dark places, places that are full of despair and where recovery doesn’t just seem a long way off, but completely unlikely.

Which is why it’s so vitally important that we surround ourselves with our positive tribe, our cheerleading squad who will lift us when we’re down, people who will make us laugh, people who will listen to us without judgement and most importantly people who will reinforce the belief that recovery is possible at the very times when we’re struggling to have such belief.

I remain thankful for my tribe.
