Hello, my name is Carter and I've been diagnosed on the Schizophrenia spectrum for about two years now, with Schizoaffective disorder being the most recent diagnosis. Anyway I took some psyche testing through a facility around where I live and they determined that I also have obsessive thoughts (which they're not wrong) and diagnosed me with OCD as well. So now I'm in treatment for the OCD part of my illness and I'm worried that the exposure therapy we do will make me more paranoid. Has anyone reading this ever had exposure therapy done with them while having Schizophrenia? And did it help or make things worse? Thank you in advance to all who reply!
