Description


Surviving Obsessive Compulsive Disorder represents my 35 year struggle to find symptom relief from the torment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) symptoms. I was a so-called “normal” person to everyone else but secretly I was enduring over 30 different OCD symptoms. My list of bizarre and strange symptoms will shock the reader. How could a brain go this wrong yet at the same time realize the complete irrationality of what it was doing? This started me on a lifelong journey to experiment with any medical treatment, therapy, support group, alternative medicine or anything else offering the slightness hint of working. It seemed like every medical journal, study or article I researched reported some small positive OCD outcome. This led me to what seemed like a never-ending search to try to find something to escape the misery of my OCD symptoms. This book is the culmination of everything I found out. The book also contains seldom discussed topics of generic drug pricing’s potential to significantly impact OCD mental health consumer’s lives, information on self-disclosure to friends, family, medical providers and employers, the tragic state of OCD humor in our society and variations on Imaginal Exposure as a treatment for consumers who refuse Exposure Response Prevention therapy.
