There's More to OCD Than You Think: A Conversation With Cristi López

I recently read an article about Cristi Lopez, a woman living with OCD. She provided a lot of insight into her condition and how it affects her daily life. It’s an eye-opening article that really challenges the stereotypes of OCD. It’s clear that there is much more to it than people realize. It can be difficult to manage and can cause real challenges for those living with it. I think it’s important for people to be aware of the struggles that come with OCD, and to be compassionate and supportive towards those living with it. We need to create a society that understands and accepts mental health conditions, and that is willing to make accommodations and provide support for those with mental health challenges.
