Anxiety Training | OCD by Elizabeth Spencer - 8M ago

It’s almost Halloween! My favorite holiday of the year – why? Because it’s not possible to be perfect on Halloween, and I embrace the imperfect.

We have talked about her difficulty moving around and how the more she sits, the weaker her muscles get. However, on that day, she was talking about something else. [...]
