OCD in the Media

ABC's Nightline recently ran a feature about OCD. As usual, it focuses on contamination, but it does vaguely address other types as well.

It's set at the annual OCD conference held last year in Minneapolis and follows Jonathon Grayson around as he and some OCD-ers do some extreme exposures. It's similar to Oprah's piece on OCD a year or two back, including the exposure to the dumpster. This time they climb in. Ack. While I'll admit I'm grateful that my therapist doesn't subscribe to the dumpster diving approach to exposure, it's useful as a way to get some perspective when I get scared of some really basic things, like sink handles.
