This is OCD Awareness Week. It is my great hope that this blog is chipping away at the misunderstandings about obsessive-compulsive disorder. These are truths I know:
* OCD is a thief.
* Obsessive-compulsives are not alone or crazy.
* Although there is currently no known cure for OCD, there is an incredibly effective treatment for it– and tools that keep it well in-check!
* The general public still doesn’t understand OCD, which is much more than just being a “neat freak.”
* Obsessive-compulsives are some of the bravest and most compassionate people I know.

Those are some great truths. I would add that we are more than our OCD.
Hear, hear!! So true!
Hi Jackie, thanks for letting me know that it’s OCD Awareness Week. I didn’t even know, but I’ve just started my own blog about OCD: http://ifyousteponthisleaf.wordpress.com/
Unlike you (I haven’t read much about your experiences yet, but I think I’ve understood this), I’ve found that faith has a rather negative effect on my OCD-tormented brain… greetings…Mirjam
