#FridayFacts: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

#FridayFacts 

 
This week's #FridayFacts focus on OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. There are lots of myths and stereotypes surrounding OCD and, unfortunately, this can stop people seeking help and support for their OCD symptoms. 
 
OCD is a form of anxiety and can be very debilitating and affect the quality of life of the people experiencing it. There are also various forms of OCD, including 'Pure O' and it's important to remember that everyone's symptoms are different and can be unique to them. There's no 'right' or 'wrong' way to experience OCD. 
 
Please do feel free to get in touch with GADS if you are looking for some help or support with improving your OCD. We are here to listen and support and can provide in-person appointments in Glasgow city centre and online appointments to anyone in the UK. 
 
Here's our contact details:

Best wishes,

Don't apologise for ....

Don't apologise for .... We work with so many clients (past and present) who always feel they need to apologise and say sorry. Apologising for saying how they feel; apologising for not meeting other people's expectations; saying sorry for putting their own needs first sometimes; apologising for not having a good day; apologising for taking up space. We don't need to say sorry for any of these things. Each and everyone of us is entitled to express our thoughts and feelings and say what we need and wan t. Each of us us entitled to assert ourselves and live our lives according to our own values, interests and expecations - not someone else's. Each one of us is entitled to and permitted to take up space and be present in this world. You don't need to say sorry for doing any of that.  You matter. You are important. You CAN take up space, because it's your right to do so. Take care, look after yourselves and have a lovely weekend. Best wishes
