Ryan's Story

Written by | Amy

The International OCD Foundation has a great blog on their website. They highlight new research, upcoming events, treatment, guest writers and more. Some of my favorites are guest writers who share their own experience with OCD and treatment. I recently ran into Ryan's Story, a real, down to earth, and inspiring sharing of the ups and downs experienced when suffering with OCD. 

A lot of times OCD or anxiety tells us that the intrusive thoughts are bad, we should keep them quiet, and hide our pain from the people in our life. Don't let the OCD monster suck you into this!! Share what you are going through and let your support system help you. Educate the world around us about OCD and help others get the help they need. At The OCD and Anxiety Treatment Center our clients have the opportunity to build friendships with others who experience similar hardships, and support from astaff that cares deeply for each person that comes in to the program. 

The challenge today is to be vulnerable. Talk to someone and share what you are going through or write about your experiences in the comments and share with us and our readers. -- You can do it! (imagine me doing a "you can do it" dance)
