In this episode I’m chatting with Michelle Hoover, NTP and creator of unboundwellness.com, about her journey with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Michelle shares more about what it was like getting diagnosed with OCD, what it was like growing up with the disorder, and how she found out that what she was experiencing was OCD. She also discusses being your own health advocate, the importance of our language choices surrounding mental illness, and how diagnosis and labels have affected her journey. She also talks about her treatment plan, how being a nutritionist helped her work through the diagnosis, how OCD connects with the rest of her health journey, how to support someone with chronic health issues, and more.
