I filmed this last summer but I've gotten enough distance from it to realize its storytime value. It's like an hour long, don't feel like you can't skip around. All names and identifying details are changed. This is my wacky story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9EWkmE7XM8

I'm back with another dermatillomania video, given the last one got over 1k Youtube views (and who knows how many more views on this site!). Apparently, it's a niche but needed conversation. This short video shows you all how I deal with my picking at night and the morning after. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSwG3De2IR0

I'm back again with another video, this time filmed on my iPhone because I'm a dumb dumb and deleted all my footage from my Camera camera. I'm answering questions I commonly get now about PTSD and my traumatic relationship experience. Thanks for watching, and sorry for the lacking of makeup, I left my concealer at… Continue reading 6(ish) Common PTSD Questions, Answered

I know I’m not the only one feeling the effects of the recent global Coronavirus pandemic, despite not having technically been personally touched by it. I know that many folks out there actually do suffer from Covid19 and I’m not claiming to be suffering like they are. That being said, I want to let you… Continue reading Coronavirus and Contamination OCD

Below is my final project for my upper level philosophy course- The Ethics of Diversity- that was just graded. I replaced the name of my old school in it, quite honestly because my parents told me to. I would have liked to include it. Ah well! Enjoy. _________________________ Olivia Epley Special Topics in Philosophy: The… Continue reading The Therapeutic Day School and Diversity in Special Education

For many years, whether or not someone liked Harry Potter was paramount to my opinion of them. If they, like some in my 6th grade Algebra class, thought it was “gay” (though it didn’t deter my years long crush on that person, for Olivia can’t reject or write people off with ease!) then I had… Continue reading The Kim Kardashian Test

I'm grateful for my parents because they challenge me. They don't always tell me what I want to hear. My father, in particular, knows when to push me and when to comfort.   He didn't always. For a long time, I wouldn't characterize either of my parents as at all effective in facilitating my treatment.… Continue reading I’m grateful for my parents, and they’re grateful for me

I’m in a new relationship. It’s going really, really well. We’re more or less in the honeymoon phase, which may or may not mean that I have stayed up until past my normal bedtime with him watching Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures, Survivor, and the Eagles games at the expense of my academics the next day. When… Continue reading New Relationships and Fear

I'm taking this amazing upper level Philosophy course titled The Ethics of Diversity. In this class, we are each allowed to spearhead our own day of discussion about a particular sector of diversity. I immediately chose neuro-diversity. My partner for the day is discussing The Minority Body and its corresponding implications for physical disability. My half of the… Continue reading My Philosophy Presentation on Mental Illness as Disability
