So, it was a great weekend. I cannot believe how much Mikalyn's quality of life has improved since starting counseling. Her counselor last week told us she cannot believe how quickly Mikalyn is taking control and fighting back on her thoughts. So, for those of you not aware of some of what people with OCD go through, here is a quick intro to Mikey. When Mikey's OCD hits, a thought will enter her brain which is completely illogical. But, for her, the thought is so powerful, that it is her reality. These thoughts are very scary and can be debilitating. It shuts her down to where she cannot function or think reasonably. Mikalyn is trying to fight back with her brain and tell her brain that these are not real. In my next post, I will go into more detail. But for now, she is fighting back and is winning, this is huge for her and will greatly improve her quality of life. GO Mikalyn, we are so proud of you!!!
