OCD Treatment: One Size Does Not Fit All

Standard

I always love writing for the International OCD Foundation blog because it makes me feel connected to the wider OCD community. Last week they posted my latest about following your own path to recovery and not relying on just one piece of advice or person to guide you.

What do you think? Have you found any benefit to getting advice from a range of resources?

Learning to Live with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Standard

Have you heard of the Health Stories Project? It’s a wonderful resource I recently learned about when they asked to interview me about my experience with OCD. They made me feel completely at ease, and I didn’t feel at all like they thought my admittedly terrible obsessions made me terrible.

Consider joining their community for support from others. I’ve joined!
