OCD community gathers in Minneapolis for annual event

Longtime OCD sufferer Randy Herrera will tell his story today.

Randy Herrera said he dealt with his Obsessive Compulsive Disorder for more than 20 years. He would pray hundreds of times a day and he would check and counts things in threes. Then last year in Boston, Herrera attended the OCD Foundation Conference where he said he got treatment and saw most of his symptoms quickly go away. This weekend, Minneapolis plays host to the annual conference, bringing together OCD sufferers, their friends and family and the researchers trying to help them. Herrera will be telling his success story at the conference on Friday. Other events going on during the conference are different types of therapy for people with OCD, support groups and other presentations.
