Love + Relationships Podcast with Debra Fileta

Christians, Anxiety, and OCD Behaviors

In Podcast by Debra Fileta

Q: I’ve never struggled with anxiety before the past few years…when I googled it, I realized I might even have some traits of OCD. Any advice on how to nagivate this and take some next steps?

Welcome back to the Love & Relationship Podcast, a hotline style show where we tackle all your questions about love, relationships, and mental and emotional health — with short, bite-sized, practical answers.

Today on the podcast we’re talking about anxiety and OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).

My co-host today tag-teaming this question is Jon Seidl! Anxiety and OCD don’t discriminate…and Jon is a Christian who has been walking the journey of dealing with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) for many years. We talk about his personal experience recognizing and dealing with OCD, where he is today, and how he finds peace and rest even within his diagnosis.

If you have any experience with clinical anxiety or even OCD, I truly think this episode and Jon’s story will resonate with you no matter where you’re at.

So tune in to today’s episode and let me know on Instagram what you thought of the conversation!
