Can't believe this!
I had wrote Dr. Phil about doing a show on OCD and this is an e-mail I got back along with a phone call.
Thank you for your e-mail regarding your OCD. I know this is a really sensitive issue for you, and I was really touched by your letter. We are currently putting together a show where Dr. Phil will be providing advice for families affected by OCD. If you're really interested in being considered, I would need to receive your picture and hear back from you within the next day or as soon as you are able to send it.
Please send me a recent (within the last 2 months) photo of yourself. JPG format works best for my computer. Or you may cut and paste it into the body of an e-mail, or attach it as a file.
Please take a minute to answer these questions:
- Could you list any behaviors/routines and please tell me how frequently you do them? (Such washing hands, daily routines, organizing your house, etc...)
- What questions do you have for Dr. Phil?
- Do you feel your OCD causes you/your family to miss out on certain opportunities to lead an every day life? Please explain.
Last, I'd like to have all of your contact numbers: cell, work, home and a good time to reach you and your spouse.
Thank you again, and I look forward to hearing back from you soon!
Just wanted to share this with all of you. My ocd along with the derealization will keep me from going but I told them I would talk with them at my home. But more importantly maybe there is going to be some light shed on this subject for all of us!
