Wow aussieangel you did really well yesterday and I bet your kids are soo happy to have you home and spending quality time with them..excellent news! You may have a couple of blue days every now and again..but that's ok - you cannot go back to square one Ever again because you have learned all sorts of new skills for coping...The way I cope with the ocd thoughts is to distract myself in some way..move on to another task..and 'cruise on past them' best fits how I manage lol.
Just remember that it takes great courage and a helluva lot of hard work to survive what you have gone through..thanx so much for posting your story..gives hope to anyone going thru wot you have and reassures the rest of us too
