Um, when I was 12,I--this is true.

I developedobsessive-compulsive disorder.

Um, and if anyone in this roomhas ever had that

or anxiety disorder,it's horrible.

Like, especially when you don'tknow what's happening to you,

um, and it was probably,like, the worst part of my life,

um, but I think about this time

when I would have kind of,like, these floods of these,

like, anxiety/OCD attacks,

and I actually hadthis really calming mantra

I'd say to myself,um, and it was--

oh, right, it was, uh, "Stop it.You're being weird.

Stop it. You're being weird.Stop it. You're being weird."

And it really helped.

[laughter]

It really helped me cope,

and I look back on when my OCDwas, like, at it's peak,

really, really bad,and I-I am regretful

because in retrospect,

it would have made me

a really fantastic late-'90s DJ.

[laughter]

This is called "The OC-Dance."

Hit it, Mark.
