Every day we receive letters, poems, stories and artwork from people with OCD that fascinate, move and inspire us. In this section of the website we will endeavour to publish some of your letters, poetry and other creative features.
OCD may be what brings us all together, but it is our individuality and artistic mind that makes us who we are.
If you do submit any work, please include a covering email/letter to tell us a little about your work, and what inspired it, and if you wish us to publish anonymously or using your name.
OCD-UK would like to hear from those of you that are affected by OCD who have a poetic bent and would like to share with us in a poem how their OCD makes them actually ‘feel’. What does your OCD feel like? The poem could be emotional, sad, witty or in whatever mood you would like to express yourself about your own particular OCD. Poetry can be a very successful medium of expression about subjects that may be difficult to portray in other formats. It can throw a light, strike a chord or suddenly depict in words what we all may be experiencing in our heads. This is a an opportunity for those of you who find poetry compelling to let us know the emotions that are within you regarding your OCD.
If you have a creative talent for the written word, or simply wish to submit a letter then we really want to hear from you. Maybe you have written a letter to yourself about your OCD in the past, and wish to share it with the world, or simply wish to express yourself in some way. Get writing today.
What as become evident is the extraordinary creative talent of many people with OCD have (just like those without OCD of course), and this is the place we intend to showcase that! Maybe you sing about your OCD, produce films, draw or create design work. Maybe your OCD helped inspire you, or maybe you are just creative, regardless of OCD, we want to display it here for the world to see.
