How many of us double check that we really have locked the door or switched off the iron?

For some people, such mundane everyday worries can become life-ruining obsessions.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) affects one in fifty people and one of them was Ruth Deane.

In this frank and personal account she shares her own experience as an OCD sufferer, from the first innocuous signs of onset to the devastating effect of the condition on her relationships with her family and friends, her self-esteem and her marriage.

Ruth Deane takes the reader on a moving, honest and at times light-hearted journey, from washing her hands until they cracked and bled, to hospital admission and eventual management and recovery from OCD.

This book offers hope and support to sufferers and an insight into the disorder for family, friends, professionals and all those who want or need to understand OCD and the recovery process.
