          OCD Nightmares

          August 10, 2005

          Are you haunted by thoughts that the stove is on when you leave the house? What if you had to wash your hands 100 times a day? If so, you’re not alone because five to six million Americans suffer from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.



          Eighteen-year-old Liz had everything: brains, beauty and popularity. She was the class president of her high school class when OCD took over her life.

          Liz gives a rare glimpse into her disorder.

          ‘The worst day of my life!’

           


          Genetic OCD?
          Amy has suffered with OCD for 20 years. Now that she’s the mother of two, she fears that she could be passing down unwanted traits to her kids.



          How can she get over her fears?

           


          ‘Living in Prison’
          Robert says OCD has taken over his life. His wife divorced him last year, he lost his job, and now he says he’s alone with his regimented schedule, strict diet and fears of getting sick.

           


          Dr. Phil’s advice to Robert.
