In episode 232 of the podcast I have Sophie who has kindly agreed to share her story with us.
I chat with Sophie about her OCD story, perinatal OCD, intrusive harm thoughts around her child, her compulsions, reaching out for help, the importance of finding help from professionals who understand OCD, the power of speaking up, how getting a diagnosis was the best thing that ever happened to her, doing research, getting CBT therapy, learning to be dismissive of the thoughts, her advocacy, words of hope, and much much more.
The podcast is sponsored by NOCD. To find out more about NOCD, their therapy plans and if they currently take your insurance head over to https://go.treatmyocd.com/theocdstories
