    Hi Mark,
    I wanted to write to thank you. I was struggling with OCD pretty badly a couple of years ago. It’s not wrong to say it was all consuming. I read anything on it that I could, bought your two books, watched ALL your videos, most of them multiple times, and worked with a very skilled therapist for just over a year. Long story short: I learned a lot from you but one thing I got from you was pivotal in my recovery through my therapist: (paraphrasing) that when it came to my OCD behaviors, I kept saying to myself I couldn’t trust what MY brain was saying about the dangers, I had to outsource and do what OTHERS were saying was the right thing to do. Otherwise I couldn’t stick with treatment since instructions were counterintuitive but I stuck with not trusting my brain and trusting others’ when it came to this based on your advice. I’m out of therapy and not suffering anymore. Thank you!
