Description
Part memoir, part self-help for teens, Being Me With OCD tells the story of how obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) dragged the author to rock bottom - and how she found hope, got help, and eventually climbed back to a fuller, happier life. Using anecdotes, self-reflection, guest essays, and thorough research, Dotson explains what OCD is and how readers with OCD can begin to get better. With humor, specific advice, and an inspiring, been-there-beat-that attitude, readers will find the book simultaneously touching and practical. "A wise and compassionate model for teens and young adults who have been newly diagnosed with OCD or are considering seeking out a diagnosis . . . This would also be an ideal guide for friends and family members of those afflicted". - Booklist " This book offers young people a candid, compassionate view of an often misunderstood problem". - Foreword Reviews
