Episode #153 – Feeling Grateful Despite Having OCD

November 23, 2023

< back to blog home

In this episode, I talk about one of biggest mindset shifts I’ve ever had around OCD and my brain in general – and why I think there’s so much to be grateful for despite having scary thoughts. I talk about …

  • A post from Dr. Laura Johnson (@ocddoodles on Instagram), inspired by a concept in a book by Jon Hershfield (@ocdbaltimore on Instagram)
  • The ways in which we are all funny, unique, and creative despite having scary thoughts
  • How our brains and perspectives are different from those who do not have OCD
