Obsessive compulsive disorder (or OCD) is a debilitating, very serious and common mental illness, a far cry from the fad that popular culture has tried to turn it into. 'OCD & Me' is a semi-autobiographical tale, which tells of one man's suffering and struggle to keep his family and his sanity. After suffering in silence for many years, when the extent of his illness becomes clear Mark is sent to a psychiatric hospital. There, he is forced to fight or to lose everything. 'OCD & Me' is heavily based on my own experience of the illness. I w lead a full and fantastic life with my wife and children. I hope my story can help give hope to other sufferers and their families, so that they too can turn their life around and enjoy it to the full.
