About me: Until May 2013, I was an academic, who was in pursuit of her PhD degree in one of the many social sciences. I received my MA last May (2012) and was hoping to have my PhD in the next 7 years… many happenings in my life though and finally listening to God’s voice I realized I needed a new life path. So while I don’t think I’m exactly in the place I need to be… I’m in the exact right place to find that place… if that makes sense…
But anyway the focus of this blog is mainly how to get by as an individual/academic and particularly an individual/academic suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I have apparently had it my whole life, but it did not hinder my life very badly until Summer 2011 when I was diagnosed with Severe OCD. Thankfully through medication, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy my OCD is hardly present.
So anyway this blog is a way to help me cope with living with OCD. To mourn the loss of myself this past year and to celebrate who I am now. To realize that I can still have the life that I want. To help others who are going through the same thing. Also I will often just post about my wanderings through life… b/c I must say it is rather entertaining sometimes… in a sad comical way lol.
Anyhoo, that is about it. Let me know if you have any questions/comments/concerns. I would love to help in any way I can :).
