“J. J. Keeler has written a wonderfully funny and woefully sad book... Keeler’s obsessions began with the usual childhood fears. Eventually they grew in proportion, leading to compulsive rituals that had to be rigidly performed. OCD victims understand that these obsessive notions do not correspond to reality, but feel they must act on them to fight off panic or dread.... Keeler has written for those who suffer with OCD—her last chapter has excellent advice—and for the rest of us who are fortunate to view this illness at a distance. She is a very gifted writer: intelligent, amusing and a fine story teller. And it is obvious that, not only is she supported by a loving husband, family and friends, she returns in kind.” —bookreview.com recommends this book as a Must Read.

Living with OCD is not for sissies. J.J. Keeler proves that. From her fears of the bomb in her teddy bear to her fear of running over innocent pedestrians, to her fear that she has caused a strangulation, she tells her story in a way that allows us to see inside her disease and to see that she has not lost her sense of humor. This light-hearted yet serious and comforting look at OCD lets some light into the closet of sufferers. This book is for those with OCD or who love someone with OCD, and for those who would like to know what it’s like to live with the daily challenges of OCD.
