As some of you know, I've been battling OCD since I was 3 years old. OCD wasn't something that my family or I knew about, so I didn't know what I had until I took a psychology class in college when I was 20 years-old. It took 17 years for me to get diagnosed. It took another 10 years before I got the proper therapy for it - exposure response prevention - which I learned about for the 1st time at an OCD conference in 2013. It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do, but I'm proud to say that I am no longer controlled by OCD. It's still there in the background, but it doesn't run my life anymore. Through therapy, I've gained the tools I need to combat any flare ups.
My family and I will be participating in the "1 million steps 4 OCD" walk on June 6, 2015 and I would like to ask for your financial support in raising awareness about OCD and its research-proven treatment. I don't want others to have to wait 27 years, like I did, to overcome OCD.
Thank you for your support.
