Living with OCD - Episode 53

Religion - Part 2


In this episode Julie and Andy continue their conversation with Charlotte about OCD and Religion. They talk about the difference between "real" prayers and OCD prayers, how they often feel like an "evil person, " and how both of them are at times preoccupied with divine retribution. Andy reads comments and emails from listeners about the topic and the resulting discussion begs the question of whether being religious makes OCD worse or better and whether an atheist suffering from OCD struggles with these same obsessions. This episode is a frank conversation about how OCD can affect and cling to areas in our lives that are most precious to us no matter how much we wish they wouldn't.
