How can I get rid of OCD?

Hi,

Can anyone help me in solving my problem? I'm 25 years old. Whenever I see my body I feel like another person. I even had thoughts of killing myself. My mind is of a girl and my body sucks. I'm a transgender and my feeling of not being normal is suffocating me.

I shared this with my friend. He suggested an OCD therapy treatment clinic in Toronto. But my inner self is holding me back. I don't know how to deal with it. Does anyone have similar issues? How can I come out of this? Please help me.

Thank You!

You need to get some counselling/therapy ideally from a qualified CBT practioner. OCD ultimately stems from anxieties. There are techniques that can be used to address the repetitive behaviours with OCD.
I'm not qualified to advise you, but a professional would be. I can tell you that counselling sessions are helping my daughter.
Sometimes SSRI drugs can be used if needed, to counter the anxiety.

Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm currently undergoing OCD treatment. Hope I will recover soon.
