Welcome to my blog, Speak To The Brain Not The Heart!  Overcoming the emotional suffering of Pure “O” OCD. 

I am a geeky stay-at-home-mom/housewife who overcame the suffering from Pure “O” Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and loves everything science!

Mental health plays a major role in our everyday lives.  As soon as we wake up, our mental health determines the outcome of our entire day.  It determines how we are going to cope with all of Life’s ups and downs.  The many different aspects of mental health is what makes us human!  Mental health is important in all areas of life, including our own happiness.  Whatever mental health journey you are on, good or bad, always remember that your mental health matters!

This Blog Is About…

This blog is about my personal experience overcoming the emotional suffering of my Pure “O” OCD.   Please keep in mind that everyone experiences mental health differently.

This blog also focuses on mental health, in general, as an effort to motivate others to overcome their own mental health challenges, whether it be a mental health disorder or a situation involving a temporary strain on one’s own mental health.  It is time to look at mental health through a different and more positive perspective to encourage all brains to practice better mental health!  ❤

“I’m Not A Professional Medical Expert” Disclaimer

Before life gave me funky lemons, I did major in biology, fueled by a childhood dream of becoming a biologist.  Unfortunately, I fell short of becoming a biologist and eventually crammed all my medical-science credits (a lot of them)  into a pretty-looking undergraduate certificate, semi-qualifying me as a bonafide paper-pusher.  So, just to clarify,  I am not a professional medical expert, nor am I an expert of any kind; except probably in the art of boring paper filing and coffee~ I love coffee!

Although I try to provide factual content based on researched information, I strongly advise readers to do their own research.  Furthermore, nothing provided in my blog should be relied upon to determine a medical diagnosis or determine/replace a treatment plan.  Please consult your health-care provider with any personal mental health concerns.

Comments on my posts are always welcome!

BTW, all cartoon illustrations in this blog (since March 4, 2019) are created by me (Ginny).  I love to doodle!  Hope you enjoy them.  🙂
