Julie's History - The Early Years
In this episode, we begin the journey of exploring Julie's history so that we can see where the origins of her obsessive compulsive disorder lie. Julie will tell her story, beginning with her earliest memories through the end of middle school. She will talk about adoption, school, friends, and most of all family. Reliving some good and bad memories, as she retells the events that shaped childhood. Much of this episode does not deal directly with OCD but instead paints a picture of Julie's past so that there is background for the discussions in future episodes. This was a difficult episode to record for many reasons. Some of the things discussed are painful and difficult to revisit.
