350 Intrusive Thoughts OCD aka "Pure OCD" Kimberley Quinlan

September 30th, 2017, 1:10 am

Specializing in treating clients whose self-judgement of their thoughts results in obsession and compulsions, Kimberley sits down with Paul and talks about the different forms OCD can take and how to treat it or support someone you love without enabling their compulsions. She and Paul also play a game she plays with clients called "One Up" where they try to outdo each other in sharing "disgusting" things that pop into their brains to show we all have thoughts pop into our heads that make us uncomfortable and laughing about it instead of judging it is the healthy response. Be forewarned, some of the stuff they share might be considered offensive or too intense for some listeners.

This was an amazing episode for me and I didn't even expect it to be. Hearing Kimberley explain the different ways "OCD" manifests itself with compulsions and that those compulsions aren't just simply limited to "I must wash my hands X amount of times". This gave me some new insight to my own (crummy) coping techniques and now I think I have a better way of explaining myself to a professional with this mindset. I also started to listen to her podcast which made it amazingly easy for me to take a nap afterwards.

It's like, you're the only person who really understands what a piece of shit I am. or something like that. why have I learned more about my multiple conditions from you and your podcast than I have in years (and years(andyears)) of therapy? So, Have we come up with a new word that covers thank you and fuck you at the same time?
