Int Opp: Foust's Believe it or Not: OCD at its weirdest

04-01-2011 07:39 PM CET | Health & Medicine

Press release from: Allen Media Strategies LLC

Growing up in the 1970s with an anxiety disorder that was only later diagnosed as obsessive compulsive lent a strange, disquieting edge to San Francisco author Foust's childhood. Inexplicable actions, such as locking her best friend in a hot car, then running away, prompted visits to psychologists, who first diagnosed Foust as schizophrenic; later in high school she found comfort in NyQuil and antihistamines, coming gradually to the realization that the compulsions waxed and waned depending on levels of stress. In her autobiography, Nowhere Near Normal, Foust pokes fun at her own sense of self-pity and describes the lack of empathy for others, giving readers an intimate look at OCD from the inside.

To request an advance copy of Nowhere Near Normal or book an interview with Traci Foust, contact Allen Media Strategies Alyssa Joy at 703-589-8960 or alyssa@allenmediastrategies.com .
