This books takes you into the often misunderstood and unknown world of OCD. The author gives good insight into what it is like living with this condition. Although slightly repetitive in some areas, it was generally a good read!
This book was a VERY informative story for any person who suffers from OCD or loves someone with it. If it seems a little excessive, it's because having it is! Untreated, it can lead to suicide! Having people around you who don't understand it's wicked tenants in you pushes you over the edge. If ANYONE judges someone for taking care of such a chemical or hormonal imbalance that manifests itself in OCD, they should be condemned! It is VERY real!! Thank you Melody for being willing to put yourself in this persons shoes to shed light on OCD. The spiritual aspect of this book is also very true and does happen! Nobody wants this disorder or to be spiritually off balance. Many times throughout the book the character is lucid and then crazy. That is how it is! It is also extremely confusing for the person going through it. EVERYBODY should read this book and not keep their head in the sand. OCD should not remain a silent killer!
I suppose the main character kind of got on my nerves. It seems that the story could have been told in about 100 pages instead of 383. After a certain point, I was just waiting for something unpredictable to happen. I bought it, so I read it, but I would not recommend it to anyone.
