Being Me with OCD

Part memoir, part self-help for teens, Being Me with OCD tells the story of how OCD dragged the author to rock bottom—and how she found hope, got help, and eventually climbed back to a fuller, happier life.

With humor, specific advice, and an inspiring, been-there-beat-that attitude, readers will find the book simultaneously touching and practical.
