“Constant Companion”

I came across a link to a post about OCD via Twitter; it’s called “An OCD Testimonial” by Ryan Arroyo. The following statement speaks to me very strongly:

“I am not alone.  I have a constant, unwelcome companion.”

Yes. That’s OCD exactly. Also almost exactly what’s described in the Front of the Class movie (very good one, by the way) which is about Tourette’s — a “constant companion” which has always been there.

Thanks to NeuroBooks on Twitter for sharing this. Those two sentences spoke volumes to me.
