#03 An unwelcome presence
In her late 20s, Natasha woke up one morning and knew that she was HIV positive. She spent the next 9 years trying to hide her anxiety, planning her funeral and imagining how she would be rejected when everyone found out the truth. In fact, Natasha was suffering from a form of OCD which took over her life and cost her a career she loved, a family and countless opportunities. Natasha talks to Suzy about her OCD, its beginnings in early childhood and how she has learnt to survive a condition that remains invisible to other people.
Launched during OCD Awareness Week 2017
