Practical advice about coping with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

In looking at the responses to this question, the issue of how hard it is to find treatment for OCD is clearly still a major problem. Because of this, I wanted to give a few suggestions of how we treat this problem and some ideas of how to find therapists.
Remember in working with any OCD problem the goal is living with uncertainty and trying to live with the possibility of your worst fears coming true. For the staring problem, there are some questions you won’t find obvious answers to. Why do you stare? The actual reason is because you are trying so hard not to and are constantly concerned about it.There are other related reasons that have to do with learning, but there isn’t space here to go into it. However, as you immediate realize, this doesn’t help you. There is the fear of what will happen to you if you get caught (or remembering embarrassing incidents in which you were caught and fearing it will happen again). Imaginal exposure should focus on this happening and you trying to cope with it. But your big question is how to do behavioral exposure. Obviously blatantly staring at people’s privates will get you into to much trouble and not staring feels impossible. For most sufferers of this, we will have them practice sneaky staring; that is, spending time purposeful time trying to stare, but in a sneaky way so as not to be caught. If this sounds scary, then you can probably make a hierarchy of places to practice, because it is likely that some places are easier than others. This isn’t a complete program obviously, but it may give many of you a start.
Second, it is important to find a therapist experienced in treating OCD — not an easy task. If the therapist doesn’t say that they use exposure and response prevention, they are not an expert. The American Psychological Association and the American Psychiatric Association actually agree that Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) is the first line treatment for OCD with medication being an important addition.Unfortunately we have found that it is easier to treat
OCD than it is to change the behavior of mental health professionals. If the therapist says they do cognitive behavioral therapy, you need to ask what kind. ERP is a cognitive behavioral therapy, but there are other techniques.
You could contact the International OCD Foundation at http://www.ocfoundation.org – they may be aware of some therapists in your area.
Finally, if you can’t find an OCD expert, you may be able to find a therapist willing to be supervised by an expert.
I hope this supplies some help.
Stare with eye corners is called Peripheral Vision
Here is what the Internet explain about it:
Peripheral vision is a part of vision that occurs outside the very center of gaze...Peripheral vision is good at detecting motion.
Definition of Peripheral vision
Peripheral vision: Side vision. The ability to see objects and movement outside of the direct line of vision. Peripheral vision is the work of the rods, nerve cells located largely outside the macula (the center) of the retina. The rods are also responsible for night vision and low-light vision but are insensitive to color. As opposed to central vision.
Encyclopedia - Peripheral Vision
Peripheral vision, or side vision, is that part of vision that detects objects outside the direct line of vision. For instance, when you read a word on a page, you are using your central vision, but it’s your side vision that tells you if the word is at the beginning or end of a sentence, or at the top or bottom of a page. Your peripheral vision also tells you where to look if someone enters the room or if a car is approaching from the side. Like most people, you are probably not aware of the limitations that would exist without peripheral vision, because you are constantly moving your eyes in order to focus with your central vision. When you see something out of the corner of your eye, its image focuses on the periphery of your retina and you are unable to distinguish the color of what you are seeing. And, because there are fewer rods, the ability to resolve the shapes of objects at the periphery of vision is
limited. Normal peripheral vision, called visual field, for one eye is approximately 150 degrees from side to side. For both eyes, it is approximately 180 degrees Loss of peripheral vision results in a condition called tunnel vision, which is like looking through a tunnel.
All that is visible to the eye outside the central area of focus; side vision.
What is peripheral vision?
Peripheral vision is being able to look forward and see the sides at the same time. Look directly at your computer screen. Can you still see what's going on around you, to the left and right of your head? That's peripheral vision.
