The Third Letter

When we launched our new logo last year, we did so to highlight the fact that the D in OCD the D means 'disorder'. For OCD Awareness Week Patrick, the host of the blog morethanmydiagnoses created this great piece about that 'third letter'.

Morethanmydiagnoses is an honest and frank record of mental illness and recovery.

Imagine

This week is OCD Awareness Week, and each day we will be publishing a different account of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

Today Connie @connectoutsider - The Connected Outsider wrote this fantastic piece that perfectly illustrates our efforts during OCD Awareness Week to help people understand the impact of OCD.

Imagine having a health condition that kept you confined to your home.

Imagine that it stopped you from being around people.

Imagine a condition that kept you tied to constant rituals and exhausted you both mentally and physically.

Imagine it kept you awake at night and prevented you from working.
