In episode 289 I interviewed Malia who has kindly agreed to share her story.

I chat with Malia about her story, her earliest OCD memory, emetophobia, somatic obsessions, medication, how the themes of OCD changed over the years, postpartum OCD, depersonalisation/derealisation, feeling guilty because of the thoughts, going through intensive outpatient treatment, how her husband also meet with other family members for OCD support, how her mindset of OCD has changed, words of hope, and much more. Hope it helps. 

The podcast is made possible by NOCD. To find out more about NOCD, their therapy plans and if they currently take your insurance head over to
