OCD and proud!
This is Kevin Walsh. He has OCD and he wants the world to see he has embraced it. and not be ashamed of it. Kevin sent us these pics and explained he has had CBT and now leads a pretty normal life regardless of his OCD. He said he wanted people to see it is ok to have this disorder. Kevin also said he would like to dedicate these photos to his friend, TW. he said that TW was a great source of support when the OCD was bad. Unfortunately TW died in a car accident.
