You know how strongly I feel about being an advocate and support of people with mental health issues, and not just because of my own experiences.
Stephen is a great writer. (Have you read ‘Skelly’s Square’ yet, his first book? Brilliant!) And deals with – you guessed it – OCD. If you haven’t read it – go on. And be a pal, and share the word about this condition that really is NOT funny.
As today marks the start of #OCDAwarenessWeek I’m going to be blogging exclusively about this devastating and deeply misunderstood mental illness in an effort to educate and raise awareness. As many of you know, I have struggled with OCD for most of my life, particularly in my 20’s and 30’s. While I largely control it these days, it’s a dormant monster always waiting to pounce at the first sign of complacency or weakness.
Please show your support by liking, commenting on and reblogging posts.
If you too suffer from OCD, know someone who does or want to know more about the disorder then feel free to e mail me.
To those who have already done so, I apologise for the delay in responding. I’ll get caught up this week.
