Just Checking : Scenes from the Life of an Obsessive-Compulsive by Emily Colas

A funny, frightening look at living with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Many parts are quite humorous, until you start considering what it would be like to have to live with OCD yourself. Then it starts to creep under your skin a little. The author did a wonderful job of tying in little stories and transitions to keep the story moving and give a partial glimpse of what living with this disorder is like.

It’s a short book and certainly worth reading.
