I don't have OCD but someone out there has to have it. Anyways, I'm recomending this great half fiction book called Kissing Doorknobs by Terry Spencer Hesser. It's aimed for younger readers, but I'm a pretty intelligent honor student adn I still enjoyed it. The book made me laugh, it made me cry (literally), it's really great. It takes you through this girl's life living with OCD. Way wonderful. One of her friends ends up pregnant and one is an anorexi model. Lots of disfuntion. So take this thread and do what you want with it (great, realistic books you've read. Abour real people and real things that don't always have a happy ending) or your experience with OCD.

You too, LilBlueSmurf?! Wow!

I've had severe OCD since I was eight. I've read Kissing Doorknobs a million times...I love that book. It was what made me realize I had OCD. I recommend that you read it, it's great!

Hi Smurf:

Kissing Doorknobs is listed at Chapters. Is ther a Chapters in the Belleville area?

You should make amends with you if only for better health. But if you really want to live, why not try and Make Yourself?
