Part memoir, part self - help for teens, Being Me with OCD tells the story of how obsessive - compulsive disorder (OCD) dragged the author to rock bottom - and how she found hope, got help, and eventually climbed back to a fuller, happier life. Using anecdotes, self - reflection, guest essays, and thorough research, Dotson explains what OCD is and how readers with OCD can begin to get better. With humor, specific advice, and an inspiring, been - there - beat - that attitude, readers will find the book simultaneously touching and practical.
