Denise Folcik is in recovery from bulimia, anorexia and OCD. She has done many television, newspaper, blog and magazine interviews, as well as speaking at the Wisconsin state capitol advocating for health insurance changes. She also speaks at libraries, women’s groups, prisons and colleges. She started her own publishing company, Metafly Books, LLC, and has published several books on OCD and Eating Disorders. Her success in writing has led her to continue writing and publishing books to help children and adults realize how important it is to discover who they truly are, separate from their diseases and live a happy life.
“Through personal experience I feel it is my purpose and calling to share my story of overcoming life’s obstacles and spread the message of hope for recovery. Having the right attitude and tools are vital to discovering who you are and finding happiness and purpose in your life. After a lot of falling down (and getting back up) I have found the life I could only dream of; a life filled with self-acceptance and true happiness.”
Alison Dotson is the author of Being Me with OCD: How I Learned to Obsess Less and Live My Life, a memoir and self-help book for teens. She is also the president of OCD Twin Cities, an affiliate of the International OCD Foundation, and the recipient of the 2016 International OCD Foundation Hero Award. Alison has spoken about her experiences with OCD with several media outlets, including NBC, The Atlantic, Glamour, and The Huffington Post.
