    From Dr David Hanscom's weekly newsletter:

    OCD Is No Fun

    Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an extreme form of anxiety. It is characterized by a relentless assault of unwelcome intrusive thoughts.You cannot control your thoughts or emotions without paying a significant price. It all sounds dismal and the general feeling about anxiety disorders, especially OCD, is that you can manage the symptoms but not generally solve these disorders. Once you understand that anxiety is the pain you are able to move past and through it. As you learn to live with uncomfortable feelings, they will lose their power over you and your pain will diminish. In this episode, spine surgeon Dr. David Hanscom discusses how to get comfortable with uncomfortable feelings as one way to control chronic pain.
