    Ep. 52: Relationship OCD and Dating

    In today’s episode, we're going to begin a new series on OCD & Relationships.

    Relationship OCD, also known as Relationship Substantiation or ROCD, is a subset of OCD in which sufferers are consumed with doubts about their relationship or their partner. Their mind continuously questions things like their love for their partner, their attraction to their partner, their compatibility with their partner, or their partner’s love for them.

    And while having doubts or concerns about your relationship and partner is totally normal.. For people with R-OCD, these thoughts can completely take over their lives and cause a lot of damage to their relationships.

    So in this first episode, I am going to share some practical ideas for creating a successful romantic relationship in spite of OCD.

    Enjoy

    Ep. 51: Tips for Dating With OCD

    Ep. 51: Tips for Dating With OCD

    Hello,

    Today we are starting a new series on Dating & OCD.

    In this episode, I discuss some high-level tips for dating and having a successful romantic relationship while living with OCD & Anxiety.

    It’s important to remember that if you struggle with OCD & Anxiety you don’t have to let it limit your life. Especially, when it comes to experiencing many of life’s amazing gifts like love and family.

    Sure, it might take a little more work in certain areas from both partners, but people with OCD & Anxiety can absolutely enjoy healthy and successful relationships.

    In this episode, I am going to discuss dating from both the perspective of having OCD and the perspective of having a partner who has OCD.

    My hope is that this will help couples begin to navigate some of the common issues they may be facing if OCD is a third wheel in their relationship.

    Have a great week,

    Matt

    Ep. 50: How does “Pure O” develop?

    Ep. 50: How does “Pure O” develop?

    Purely obsessional OCD, often called ‘Pure O,’ is a form of OCD in which a person experiences primarily intrusive or unwanted thoughts without performing outward compulsions or rituals.

    For a long time, Pure O has been seen as a type of OCD that has been more difficult to treat than others. However, in my experience, people with Pure O almost always engage in compulsions, they are usually just less noticeable to others, especially if you don’t know what to look for. Most compulsions are unseen compulsions, such as mental rituals like mental checking, rumination, or other mental distraction techniques.

    People with Pure O will also engage in different, often subtle, physical compulsions, such as avoidance, checking, and reassurance seeking.

    So in this episode, I discuss how ‘Pure O OCD’ develops, and I also offer some examples of different compulsions that people engage in.

    Ep. 48: How Does OCD Develop?

    Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) features a pattern of unwanted thoughts called obsessions, that produce anxiety, which lead you to perform repetitive behaviors called compulsions. These obsessions and compulsions tend to get worse over time and can interfere with daily activities and cause significant distress.

    In this video, I discussed how  OCD develops specifically the four components that causes OCD to form.  If you have friends and family members who are suffering from OCD, feel free to share this information with them to help spread awareness and education.

    Ep. 47: Understanding Mass Movements - A Cause & New Opportunity

    Ep. 47: Understanding Mass Movements - A Cause & New Opportunity

    This week we are going to tie up our series on mass movements.

    In this third and final episode, I discuss the idea of how leaders of effective movements unite people under a new cause and new opportunity towards the future.

    This is extremely important for a movement to gain momentum and cultivate a mass following.

    Additionally, I discuss how the most effective mass movements will also set up the opportunity for people to self-identify with a movement, which enables them to fully embody a new ideology.

    Hope you enjoy the show,

    Matt

Amazing!

Such a great way to better understand OCD if you are living with it or know somebody who has it. This helps make everything so much more easy to understand and gives you the first steps on how to get help. I highly recommend!!!!
