In episode 368 I chat Michael Schramm who has kindly agreed to share his OCD story. 

We discuss his story, his earliest OCD memory, his varying OCD worries in childhood, getting his OCD diagnosis, getting into advocacy for OCD, doing exposure and response prevention therapy (ERP), what’s helped him the most recently, and much more. Hope it helps.
