Welcome to the website of Cherry Pedrick, RN. I am the co-author of The OCD Workbook, The Habit Change Workbook, The BDD Workbook, Helping Your Child with OCD, Loving Someone with OCD, Obsessive Compulsive disorder, and Anxiety Disorders. Find out more about these books and information about how to order them below.
Why butterflies? To me, the butterfly is a symbol of what people with OCD can become. We are caterpillars with great potential. I spent years as a caterpillar; functional, but not living up to my potential. With the onset of obsessive-compulsive disorder, I entered my cocoon. I isolated myself from others because of shame, embarrassment and secrecy. With treatment and education, I am becoming the butterfly I was meant to be.
