Can OCD be outgrown??


Recommended Posts

Can OCD be outgrown completely, or atleast become a lot less severe as somebody grows up? because I have had OCD all my life, but this past year, as my body is changing (im a teenager) and all my hormones out of wack, the OCD has deffinitly been the worst. Recently though it's calmed down a LOT... its so much better now. So can OCD get better as a kid goes through puberty and becomes an adult?

I think it may be normal to be especially ocd in your teenage years and I think we all have a little ocd in us, but when it starts to take over your life I think you need to get help. I think if it is mild to a normal amount a teen could out grow it, but I would keep an eye on it and not be afraid to seek help if necessary.
