Bess Cunningham was born and currently live in Brooklyn, New York. Since childhood, she has suffered with severe OCD, anxiety, and depression. In desperation for relief, Bess spent 10 years researching and experimenting. Through trial and error, Bess discovered little known, unconventional, all natural self-help methods that work as well as prescription drugs. After being in a living hell, Bess remains OCD free and is enjoying her life. Her book, OCD & Me, My Journey Through Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, is her personal story that many people can identify with.
While in college, Bess' OCD was so bad she had to withdraw. She became a mother at a very early age, and then opened her own retail business, which she and her husband still run. Today she is President of Landing Gear Inc, and has a small chain of retail clothing stores. She also does photography, and has covered events, such as seminars with Cesar Milan, the Dog Whisperer, the Canine Cruise, and Milkbone. Recently she edited a book, A Lost Art (Reflections of a Dermatologist.) None of this would be possible without her conquering her severe OCD, which she did alone and without medication.
