Cheers to another Monday! Today, I am sits down with my right hand girl, Anne-Claire Patterson to talk all about mental health + her journey to taking a break from alcohol. We dive into what it’s like going to therapy the first time, dealing with anxious thoughts and the effects drinking alcohol has on us. I didn’t really know much about OCD, but it was so interesting to hear and learn about it from Anne-Claire, I think there are a lot of misconceptions that we all have about OCD.
