Many people have heard of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, but are completely unaware of the subcategories of OCD that exist.

On this episode of Calm, Cool and Connected we visit one of these categories, Pure Obsessional OCD. Our guest is Reed Rickards, a writer and copywriter who suffers from “Pure O OCD.”

Key Takeaways from Liz’s chat with Reed:
• Hear about Reed’s background

• Find out what Reed’s obsessions can look like and sound like
• Discover tools that Reed’s therapist gave him to help deal with the intrusive thoughts

• Learn some of the ways that Reed manages his Pure Obsessional OCD

All of this and more, on this episode of Calm, Cool and Connected.
