Joshua Phillips & Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Hi! Welcome to That’s So Chronic. Today I am bringing you an interview with ‘aging acrobat’ (his words!) Joshua Phillips. Back when Joshua was around 11 or 12 he was diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder, or OCD.

In this episode we chat about his diagnosis, what obsessions and compulsions are like for him, we discuss the misinformation floating around about OCD, and there’s even a message for Kylie Minogue.

I consider Josh to be a really good friend, and when he messaged me to be interviewed on That’s So Chronic that was the first time I had ever heard him talk about OCD. I feel really honoured that he trusted me and the That’s So Chronic community to share his story, and I love that I get to share it with all of you today.

For more info about the ‘97 movie As Good As It Gets: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119822/ PS I did watch it… It’s definitely dated, but it holds up okay. It was interesting!

The episode of Scrubs with Michael J Fox that is mentioned is: ‘My Catalyst’ season 3 episode 12

And I recommend following Joshua on instagram: @joshuakirayoshi it's truly amazing the things he creates and the tricks he performs!

That really helps TSC get into more ears around the world, to hopefully spread awareness, and more importantly… Hope.
