Living with Me and My OCD: An Interview for Claire's Documentary




ClaireJaneOCD on twitter is creating a documentary about the experience of having OCD, and invited me to contribute a video.  Claire and Jane are twins in the UK, who just completed running a marathon in order to bring awareness about OCD.  This is my first time recording myself!  And definitely an exposure to make it, but hopefully will be helpful to other people who struggle with OCD.

  2. Thank you for sharing this. I found myself nodding at a lot of what you were saying. I loved how you likened finding people who understand to healing. It's truly healing to read and now listen to people like you who are willing to share your experiences with OCD with others.

  3. Thank you for sharing.....your story about it taking years before finding the right therapist and therapy (ERP Therapy) is all too common. You are helping so many people by getting the word out about the proper therapy for OCD.

  5. I didn't want this video to end. Your blog is a lifeline for me, as I know it is for many others. In fact, I started a blog myself! It's especially a relief to find people having a conversation about Pure O - like you said in your film, to see the thoughts that were my private hell articulated, to know they aren't just torturing me, gives so much strength and courage. Thank you.
