In episode 15 of The OCD Stories podcast I interviewed Elvis Gomes. Elvis is a singer song writer and is currently doing a masters degree. He is an OCD advocate and has created the musical project OCDletmego which started after his performance on the TV show Switzerland’s Got Talent in 2015. He performed in the show with his original song “Let Me Go” which relates to Elvis’ personal experience with OCD.
We talk about why homosexual OCD should be called sexual orientation OCD. We discuss his recovery which includes ERP, acceptance, meditation, yoga and the importance of developing a life filled with things that you love. Elvis tells us about his performance on Switzerland’s Got Talent of his song “Let me go”. We explore his fundraising project #OCDletMeGo. We look into gender and OCD in linguistics. Enjoy…
