OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) - Stories of Hope

"Pushing Through The Noise"
An In-Depth Look Into The World of 
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
with David & Chalese

(Episode #11) 

      In this episode we had the pleasure of talking to David and his wife Chalese.  David has suffered with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) for years.  His specific OCD is with germs which brings with it a burden of anxiety.  David shares the tools he has learned and used to help him work through his OCD.  One tool he uses is the counting method where he will count and that helps his anxiety to calm down.  
         David and Chalese also share how this has effected their marriage and the things they do to support one another.  Maintaining open communication was one thing they really stressed, for example Chalese helps David talk through the things he is feeling when his anxiety is high.  
         We really encourage you to listen to their episode!  We learned so much about OCD and how debilitating it can be on a person!  There are tools out there and people trained to help with this disorder, and that is something David really stressed to our listeners!  He wants people to know that seeing a therapist can absolutely help those who are suffering so all should take advantage of that resource! 
         We are so grateful to David who was so vulnerable in sharing his story! We know that many will be inspired! 

           Thank you for stopping by, and be sure to listen to this episode! 
                       Much Love, 
                             Mary & Eddie
