Thank you for your Comments!

Helping one person makes an infinite difference. I learned that years ago when I started sharing my own recovery. To this day, I know that offering help to those who deal with OCD every day, not only gives them hope – but me too. I am one of you. I’ll continue to offer free OCD Coaching Videos on our web site, YouTube, and Facebook – for the health of it.

Never give up hope,
James Callner

Comments:

“James please never stop making these you have no idea how much you have helped me. Keep up the good work.!!!”

“Your videos are very helpful to me also. Thank you.”

“Fantastic video Jim will help many many people. Great work.”

“Thanks James – the video is fantastic, lots of positivity, encouragement and hope, well done.“

“Thank you for sharing your video. May I share it with my therapist? I know that she has several patients that have difficulty with shower time.“

“You motivated me and reminded me that there IS hope!“

“I watched the video on the Shower. That was magnificent. You should do more video’s on other topics, like how to drive if someone is afraid, or other topics. I have NEVER seen videos like these and these tools can help people experience positive change by WATCHING HOW TO RECOVER.“

“Love that you posted this because I have looked online for help on this and in a few books, and this is a great video.“

“Thanks for posting, this video is a welcome help!“

“Thank you so much for this Jim. This really means a lot. I hope that when I have the courage someday, I will also be part of ‘The Faces of OCD.'”

“Inspiration comes in many forms. Great form Jim.“

“Thanks James for this video. I am glad I am not alone.”

“A Calming, Remedy video.. Thanks for your sharings and best wishes for your helping journey!”

“Thank you for the valuable tools Jim! I wrote down everything you said that I feel would help me. I appreciate the help.”

“I love your words of wisdom and experience, Jim. Thank you for this.”

“When I came across your video about taking a shower with OCD on twitter, I then watched many of your other videos and something just clicked. It was a surreal moment because here, on my iPad screen in the early hours of the morning, I was seeing someone who was just like me. I think you are a real inspiration and the fact that you offered to make a video about exposures just for me, well, all I can say is that I am honored.”

“…this inspired me to create a challenge for OCD awareness week, thank you so much for sharing this video.”

“I just wanted to say that I am now starting to see the effects of positive mental attitude and good therapy with hard work and ERP.”

” I discovered your website tonight and I’ve just finished viewing several of your videos. I’m a 66 yr. old retired teacher who was diagnosed with OCD by a psychiatrist last year. I see now that I’ve had OCD for decades. But it has gotten worse these past few years.”

“Thank you so much for the information on your website. I’ve found it so very helpful tonight and will return to it.”

“I would like you to know that you have been such a massive source of inspiration and hope to me, and I can only dream of being that for other people. You are such a kind human being and I would like to thank you sincerely.I am going out and about, eating in restaurants and spending time with friends again which has drastically improved my life.”

“It’s really nice watching a video about people who understand how I feel.”

It’s OK to just be you.

I taught college for over thirty-six years, but I started to really understand teaching at about year twenty. I think most teachers go through the same thing. They don't teach you how to teach in graduate school. I learned that students wanted inspiration and mentoring over hard core expectations. I taught in the Fine Arts department. I taught Acting for TV and Film, Television, Screenwriting, Filmmaking, all that show biz stuff. So expectations were running high in my young students. They wanted to be fast stars.

I remember one student came into my office after a class in tears. He was in distress because he didn't know what he wanted to be or how to get there. "Jim, what am I going to be!?" I had enough years of OCD recovery and some years of mindfulness training so I offered some advice that I had been working on myself.

Essentially I told him “You don't have to ‘be’ anything. You just have to be.” He looked at me and stopped tearing up. I think he got it. None of us have to be anything other than ourselves at any given moment. The more genuine we are, the more accepting we are, the kinder we are, the more honest we are with ourselves and others, the more trusting we are that we'll be OK, helps to further strengthen our being-ness. Today, despite everything and everyone moving around so quickly, I choose to gracefully be me.
