3: Carter doesn't have many friends because he's scared they will make him sick. | He wants friends but he ALWAYS needs to be clean. So Scrub-A-Dub-Dub
4: When Carter’s mom noticed how much time Carter spent taking baths, she took Carter to see Dr. Theripee | He Told Carter that he had something called OCD. "Obsessive Compulsive Disorder are habits caused by unreasonable thoughts or fears. OCD is caused by a low level of serotonin in the brain." He told them.
5: "What does that mean?" asked Carter | "It means the reason you take so many baths is because you are overly afraid to get sick" said Dr. Theripee. It's caused by OCD.
6: So Doctor Theripee gave Carter some medications to help and started therapy sessions. | After time Carter stopped being afraid of getting sick!
7: And he started bathing a normal amount! | Scrub-A-Dub-Dub!
