THE STORY:

At the age of eight years old I was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulisve Disorder. I have spent lots of time in various treatment centers, hospitals, and mental health programs (including the intensive OCD program at Bradley Hospital.) Over the past five years, I have learned to overcome my fears and cope with my weaknesses. It wasn’t an easy journey and I wouldn’t have been able to make it alone, but thankfully my family, friends, and strong team of doctors stood by my side the whole time. At first, I wasn’t comfortable talking about it and I never wanted people to find out I had severe OCD. Now, I realize that not only do I need to stop hiding my true self, but I need to spread awareness for this commonly forgotten mental illness. After I saw how many other kids in the world that OCD affects, I felt it was my responsibility as a recovering patient to lend a hand.

My family is especially thankful for the support and help we received from the Bradley Hospital Intensive OCD Program.
