Rising Above OCD: Cody's Story
Cody describes himself as a happy child growing up, but during high school he experienced bullying due to his sexuality and being openly gay. He was able to persevere through the bullying and went on to start a career in the tech industry. Over time he did notice changes in his behavior, but since he was having professional success, Cody felt it might have been residual from the bullying and that his perfectionism tendencies were just normal. Eventually though, the symptoms increased to the point where they became debilitating.
