On this episode of Blindsided, Dr. Diane asks Corey the questions. We learn about the complexities of OCD, what life was like for him before his diagnosis, and how difficult finding the right help was. For a long time, Corey says, he was a prisoner of his own mind. Now, the chains have lifted and he’s found a meaningful path forward in life, living with OCD and ADHD. The hosts discuss why they decided to start this podcast and what they hope to give you, the listener. We thank Corey for his continued openness on these difficult subjects.
This week, Corey released a book about his struggle with mental illness titled, The Save of My Life. You can purchase this book on Amazon.
