People usually don't want to hear about how to "manage" a disease or condition; they want a complete cure. But the truth is that even people who do not have a disease or condition experience the same problems and challenges, perhaps to a lesser degree. My point is that everybody has stress and anxiety, times of deep sadness (depression), anger, etc. The trick is to learn how to manage the accompanying thoughts and feelings so that they don't steamroll your life. Shannon Shy shows how he has effectively done just that, and although his method of overcoming OCD may not be exactly right for all OCD sufferers, it can be tweaked and personalized and also spark new ideas on how OCD can be effectively managed.
I know you will enjoy reading this book as much as I have!
I found it helpful that the author got very graphic with his fears. I was interested to find out that I share many of the same fears that he did - particularly when it comes to the fear of hurting/harming other people/things. Many of the ways that he shared that OCD trips up a person I could also relate to. OCD is as old as, well who knows, but it seems to trip people up over and over in all that various ways and schemes in which it works.
I like a happy ending - especially in real life. I'm still hoping for my own happy ending. I appreciated the practical advice the author gave in the book and I'll definitely put it to use in the real world. I see this year as being the year that I take a stand against my OCD and gain MUCH ground on it (for a change). OCD has steadily been robbing more and more of my life and up until now I've been on the same path as the author said he once was - a downward spiral. My joy in living has been taken away from me and I'm sick of feeling 'defective' and 'abnormal'. Over the last few months I have providentially come into some great material and met some good people who have fought OCD and won.Read more ›
