Chrissie Hodges Welcome to the dark side of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. There are many forms of OCD, and one in particular is rarely talked about openly due to the shame and embarrassment surrounding the nature of the obsessions. I live with Pure O/Sexual and Violent Intrusive thoughts. As an advocate for mental health and OCD, I use humor and storytelling to help audiences grasp the severity and torment of this crippling disorder in a society where every other person claims they are 'so OCD' in one capacity or another. My talk will include my personal journey with Pure O as well as information on OCD and how to walk the road to recovery. I often say Pure O is like the dirty little secret of the OCD world, however it is one of the most common yet silent types of the disorder.

When ever I think about being gay (I am straight. I like guys) but last year I was by a (girl) friends house and we were in here room she wrapped her leg around mine and was rubbing my leg and I started feeling worried and guilty but maybe I liked it just because of the attention. But I also was feeling grional ( I hope I’m spelling that right) but now when ever I am around her think about being scared about being gay. I don’t want to go to hell. Now I’m scared that I’m not even attracted to guys anymore! When I had that experience with my friend I don’t think I liked it. I don’t really remember. But I’m scared that I did and that I’ll go to hell. Whenever I think about that day I feel a burning in my heart and I get so mad at myself for feeling that way and I feel mad at her. Please Reply (I am not trying to hate on gay people. I just don’t want to feel this way)

Great insight into mental health, i hate always lieing when I'm unwell and saying something other than I'm sick instead of saying I'm depressed or aniexty or obsessive thoughts are ruining my life but I always lie and say I have flu or just normal sickness. There should be a word we could use so it ends the stigma like I'm not in work today becuse of my "mh" and nobody questions it, i hate when people say "oh I had bad day at work" that's what I had also ? "noooo" that's not mental health or depression that's just a rough day give me your bad day over my shit any day id be happy with that and you try and function with mental health strains 👍

I had a FaceTime consultation with Chrissie to discuss my ocd and treatment. She was so nice and amazing just as she is here and in her videos. She’s a great person who definitely had her work cut out for her!
