My guest post by Becky Jane Stephenson is an example of how OCD can show up and how exposure-response prevention (ERP) works.
Non-contact contamination fears, also known as mental or emotional contamination OCD, can be linked to an unpleasant memory or event. This can, but not always, be the environmental onset for developing OCD, if predisposed.
Several things can cause procrastination. These might be fear of failure, boredom, depression or anxiety. A quote by an unknown author is ‘Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.’ The point in all of this is to ask yourself, why am I burying my opportunities? Why do I have a fear of failure? Why am I bored? What’s making me depressed or anxious?
