Living with OCD is not for sissies. J.J. Keeler proves that. From her fears of the bomb in her teddy bear to her fear of running over innocent pedestrians, to her fear that she has caused a strangulation, she tells her story in a way that allows us to see inside her disease and to see that she has not lost her sense of humor. This light-hearted yet serious and comforting look at OCD lets some light into the closet of sufferers. This book is for those with OCD or who love someone with OCD, and for those who would like to know what it's like to live with the daily challenges of OCD.
