This morning, I was lying in bed, remembering that I have two meetings today with a guy who has a really bad cold. Oh, I thought, maybe I'm sick and need to stay home. But I wasn't. And avoidance is bad, yadda yadda. So I got up.
I'm Ann, a 43 year old woman who has struggled with OCD for the last 17 years. I've been in treatment with some success, but never really put a knock out punch on my compulsions. I started working toward that goal in 2009. Obviously this is a work in progress. This blog chronicles my journey, as well as discussing OCD more generally.
