I recently read about a woman with OCD who is terrified of getting germs on her hands. She has to open all doors with her feet and must wash her hands for 5 minutes continuously throughout the day. She also does not wear a lot of the clothes she owns because she feels as though by being around certain things, they would be contaminated regardless if it was washed or not. This woman did an interview on the news. I thought that she was pretty strong to announce her problem on television. I also liked how she helped to educated people about her disorder.
