Just to let everyone know I had a phone call out of the blue from Radio Cornwall last week asking if I would be willing to do an interview about OCD. They must have kept my details from two years ago when they gave publicity for an OCD awareness day we held in Liskeard as part of OCD week. Anyway, I agreed to do it, the interviewer wanted a very personal account about my own OCD and it will be broadcast on Radio Cornwall tomorrow straight after the news at 1pm and followed by a phone in with experts on hand to answer questions. There will be 'tasters' at 7.05am and 12.05 pm to advertise the main feature. They want lots of people to phone in to create an interesting and informative discussion - so please feel free to contribute.
Then, this morning yet another phone call out of the blue from BBC Spotlight TV Plymouth to ask if I would be willing to give a TV interview, when I said I would do it they said "tomorrow?". So yet another reporter is coming tomorrow morning. I just hope I will get the opportunity to talk about the matters which are important to all of us and not end up just feeling like a museum exhibit. I don't know when it will be broadcast but it could be as soon as on the 6.30pm programme tomorrow.
One reporter into my home was stressful, now another one with camera equipment is going to be worse but the thing I am dreading most is that my 'secret' will be well and truly out of the closet and I am wondering how it will affect people's attitudes to me. Wish me luck please everyone.
