I guess the many choices confuse us about what to choose from. Especially for OCD, there is so much research done, while some therapists use same old approaches.
They use what’s proven enough to have some effect over time. Not many specialists like to experiment with new methods simply because most of those methods need more research to be perceived as practical by the medical community.
I understand where you’re coming from. Many specialists prefer to use treatments and methods proven through research and clinical trials. But providing safe treatments, which stick with established practices, doesn’t always mean they are effective enough.
I would say most of the established practices are definitely not effective enough by themselves. But this is the reality, and we should supplement our treatment plans if we feel they are not working well.
I agree here that everyone should take as much responsibility as those who treat them. We should not solely blame others for our results, no matter their expert level.
Very true. Most of our progress depends solely on our behavior and strategy to overcome the symptoms. A good doctor is like a good teacher, the potential is there, but the person should make good use of it.
You are very right here, and we have all seen examples of this. Even the most successful people I know have achieved their rights primarily by themselves. I believe everyone can do and have what they want in life as long as they put in the effort and take responsibility.
Usually, what you are saying is correct. Luck typically comes to those who have put in more effort than others, even if it comes a little later than expected.
