“For me OCD is like a cold I have had for 15 years. It is far from ideal but it is manageable. Most days my OCD is the equivalent of a snotty nose, just a reminder that things aren’t quite right. Other days it is like the kind of cold which means I can’t go to work because I am so tired and can’t breathe”
In The Common Cold, Kirsty talks about having Obsessive Compulsive Disorder since she was a kid. Going ‘off topic’ in therapy and her experiences with it, finally working directly on her OCD, how it’s different to her other mental health issues.
