In this episode I chat with Steven about altered states of consciousness (ASC) which can occur after heavy usage of cannabis, or magic mushrooms (Psilocybin). We discuss how this lesser known symptom of OCD can manifest itself, and how to recover from it using CBT. Hope it helps.

Harris Goldberg – OCD in Hollywood

I had an interesting chat with Harris about many topics. We talked about using comedy as a defence mechanism, ERP, ERP advice, fear of death, depersonalization disorder, OCD triggering depersonalization, why do I have OCD vs how do I recover from it?, pushing against anxiety with ERP, and how the uncertainty of Hollywood can fuel OCD. We also discuss why Harris writes himself into his films, lifestyle changes, daily yoga, nutrition, guilt, why living a pure kind of existence was a compulsion, opening up about mental health in Hollywood, why the media gets OCD so wrong and the importance of being kind to yourself. Enjoy!
