I had noticed a while ago that there are support groups for OCD sufferers. Actual places where one can sit in a group with other sufferers and do what it is that they do.
I didn't like the idea of it when I first noticed that there was one a couple of times a week not so far from here. The idea of meeting a bunch of strangers seems frightening enough without my OCD adding a new set of fears and bringing up every past fear in front of my eyes. Maybe it is only frightening because the OCD got to the idea and planted the seeds of fear before I realized what it was doing.
Maybe the only way to get rid of the fear is to attempt to attend just one or two of these meetings and who knows maybe it would be helpful. Worst case scenario in my mind at the moment is that it is just as helpful as my last therapist -snickers-
