While cleaning today, I found a card with this photo on the cover in a book of my aunt's. Inside it says, "You can do it." I'm not one to post cute ducks, but I love this one, and it's now hanging on my bulletin board, to inspire me every day. (The photo is by Jim Rider and is copyrighted, so I probably can't post it, but here it is).
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.
