Someone with O.C.D. Gives Shoutout for Guided Imagery

11 Sep

Bellruth [sic] & Health Journeys,

I have been listening to your DVD [Ed. Note: she means CD] on OCD [Obsessive Compulsive Disorder] and I can finally feel relief. I’m not sure how it works but I know it does like nothing has before.

I do take Zoloft [Ed. Note: an SSRI or sustained serotonin reuptake inhibitor for depression] and Lorazepam [Ed Note: brand name is Ativan, a sedating, muscle- relaxing, anti-anxiety agent], but not till I started listening to your OCD dvd [sic] did my mind and outlook and thinking change. It is so nice. I can't thank you enough.
