Haley O. talks about her experience with depression, PTSD and Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (called "BFRBs" eg. skin picking). She talks about her early diagnosis of ADHD, OCD, and turrets (and later, anxiety and depression). Haley also talks about the two major traumatic situations in her life that led to her BFRB and major depression (TW: one was sexual in nature).
We also talk about having sensitive nervous systems, PTSD, trauma and guilt, support groups, high-stress jobs, reaching out for help, courage, redefining "success" for yourself and SO much more.
