Did you know that an estimated 30 percent of patients who have OCD also have ADHD? Dr. Roberto Olivardia shared this statistic 2 weeks ago in our first episode about OCD. We know there is a strong connection between ADHD & OCD, and it is really important to us to not only share clear, precise info about these co-morbidities but also real life examples of how they play out in our lives. This week we are joined by friend of the show Ashley Jacobs, who is graciously sharing real life examples about how ADHD & OCD play out in her life. It’s also interesting that Ashley shared she had never really thought about how her ADHD and OCD coincided with each other until we reached out to her to come on the podcast.
REMINDER – if you haven’t listened to our two part series “Understanding ADHD & OCD with Dr. Roberto Olivardia” – this would be a great time to pause and go back 2 episodes. We all think we have an idea of what OCD is, but Roberto does an incredible job of illuminating parts of the disorder that many of us are probably unfamiliar with.
