OCD according to religion

I have a somewhat unusual question. I feel curious about those of you who are religious and talked with a priest about your OCD. I want to know what advice the priest gave you and their overall opinion about OCD. Did they tell you that you might have evil spirits in yourself?

I recommend you read this story. CASTING OUT THE OCD DEMON – OCD & CHRISTIANITY
The pastor told the young woman that the presence of fear and doubt could be interpreted as a spiritual problem. She did not get rid of her OCD that way, but she claims that relying on faith makes her existence more peaceful.

I took a look at it, and it sounds interesting. Even those who are not religious, relying on God or, alternatively - the universe about what happens with their OCD symptoms might reduce anxiety. At least it creates the belief that some superior power will take care of things instead of us.
