Is there a link between OCD and Autism? Did the government support autistic people enough? What challenges does OCD present? Can special interests help combat OCD anxiety? Is autistic OCD more logical? 
In this episode of the Thoughty Auti Podcast, Thomas Henley talks to Autism's Individual (Youtube) - An advocating YouTuber and website blogger with a strong experience and knowledge of Autism and mental health.
They start by discussing Anna's interests, the community work she's involved in, and how the recent COVID-19 pandemic affected her management of OCD. After a dive into Anna's late-diagnosis of ASD-1... they touch briefly on the difficulties of being an autistic female in todays society, and the difference between poor social ability and poor language proficiency - commonly misunderstood traits of autism.
We take a stroll through Anna's memories, looking into the real effect OCD can have on someones life. Hiding your struggles from others as a protective mechanism, how having autism and OCD may be different from the norm, the 'Healing Mechanism' found in autistic interests, and how Anna has used those interests to overcome her phobias - all compelling topics with deep analysis from both parties.
They soon get into coping strategies for OCD; further highlighting the problems those with OCD and/or autism have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even in normal circumstances, autistic adults often need to actively seek out support, which poses a problem to those with social difficulties. 
Anna wants few things for vulnerable individuals during the COVID-19:- 
1. More accessible online support/mentoring services. 2. Specialist therapy services for autistic people. 3. More active support for carers and services for housebound individuals. 4. Easier access to services for those with social difficulties
It's difficult not to appreciate Anna's experience and knowledge, so sit back and enjoy this intellectual dissection on autism, OCD, COVID-19, and all the grey areas between them.
