In the latest installment of ABC's Primetime: Family Secrets, we're introduced to Bridget, a 15 year-old girl who can't hug her parents. The young girl can barely even sit in the same room as her parents without twisting, turning or screaming because she believes that they are "contaminated." Primetime follows the progress of Bridget, along with three other subjects all who suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), as she sits in the therapy room and fights her disorder. David Muir hosts this gripping special that puts a face to OCD from both the child and their family's perspective. Primetime: Family Secrets airs tonight at 10pm.
