In episode 323 I chat with Meredith who has kindly agreed to share her OCD story with us.
We discuss her OCD story, sexual orientation theme, medication, the tough time she had going to a general inpatient facility, how OCD symptoms were impacting her relationships, support groups, creating a bespoke support system, exposure and response prevention therapy (ERP), how her family learned not to reassure her when she was compulsively asking, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for her depression, exercise and meditation, and much more. Hope it helps.
