This week on No Restraints with Rudy Caseres my guest is Chrissie Hodges. Chrissie is an author, peer support, and OCD resource consultant. She’s spoken across the country on various OCD-related issues. One of her main focus points is Pure-O, otherwise known as Primarily Cognitive Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. For Chrissie, Pure-O manifests mostly as intrusive thoughts of violent or sexual nature. I admire Chrissie for being brave enough to speak openly about taboo subject matter and in doing so inspiring others to share their own stories. As a matter of fact, I admire her so much that I even drove 6 hours to San Francisco, where she received the 2017 Hero Award at the International OCD Foundation’s Annual Conference, just so I could meet her in person. You can learn more about Chrissie, including how to attend her upcoming event OCD Gamechangers at ChrissieHodges.com. You can also purchase her memoir PURE OCD: The Invisible Side of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder on Amazon. Finally, you can support Chrissie’s advocacy work with a monthly pledge on her Patreon.
Thanks for the support you have all shown me the past couple months. Please keep sharing and spreading the word. Why? Because it’s for your own good.
