THE HURRICANE POD: Episode 3 with Iona Wheeler

Iona Wheeler (they/them) is a Scottish musician and school student.

We talk about Iona’s experiences with OCD – how it manifests for them, and how harmful misconceptions of the illness can be. We discuss how it is viewed as a quirk, and how this differs from the debilitating reality.

We also talk about queerness, and how that can interfere with people’s perceptions of your illness, and even with receiving a diagnosis.

Content note: compulsive ticks, and brief mentions of healthy eating, veganism, and weight stigma in eating disorder treatment.

I hope this episode is informative.
