I have Ocd with intrusive thoughts. My house is very clean but I secretely hoard things like flyers. Some things i "could not" throw away for fear something bad would happen... I have recently (2 months) been put on prozac and since then I cleaned out my filing cabinet and nightstand which resulted in an entire blue bag of papers :) today I threw out old b-day candles, mind you I washed my hands the usual 4 times afterward, but I did it i know that I am not 100% and who knows if I will ever be. But these little steps are big steps for me :)

Congrats. Those are huge steps. Just keep working on it. But don't get overwhelmed either. You can always move on to something else and come back to that to through out.

Good Luck
