Making Room for Your Life: TEDx Lincoln Talk with Khara Plicanic



I came across Kara Plicanic on Instagram.  She is a wedding photographer with a creative eye, and I was intrigued that she had done a TEDx talk called Anything is Possible ~ and That's the Problem.  Or is it? about her experience with OCD.

She recommends reading Jeff Bell, and I concur that he is an eloquent writer and speaker about facing OCD and making a life.

It helps to find kindred spirits who are artists as I am, and who have made room for their creative spirit amidst the crowding of OCD thoughts.

  2. Thank you so much for this! As a fellow OCD sufferer, I found Khara's talk most comforting and articulate in the way she describes how it's important to learn to widen our focus when OCD / life bullies us. I also write a personal blog about my self-directed journey using ERP for my OCD, entitled, 'Breaking Free from OCD: My Self-Directed Journey': http://breakingfreefromchronicocd.blogspot.co.uk/ It's helping me to process my thoughts and to hopefully help / inspire others. All the best, Gemma
