From author James Callner:  

“This is more than a memoir of my life living with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). It is more than my challenges and struggles with OCD. It is a book of hope, strategies, processes, tools, and solutions that I learned over several decades–all of which gave me my life back. I use them to this day and share them with you now. Living with OCD does not mean you cannot have a productive happy life. You can! For all of the courageous souls who take on OCD every day as I do: This book is for you.”

Book Description:

If you are looking for empathy, compassion, kindness, hope, and practical tools for living with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), this book will help inspire you on your journey to recovery.

In 1982, author James Callner suffered a devastating mental breakdown and the onset of severe OCD. He was hospitalized for six weeks. He felt broken, lost, and terrified about what was happening to his life. He felt trapped with no way out. But there was a way out …

This hopeful and inspirational memoir is warm and casual and shares his recovery process. His care was multifaceted, including hospitalization, cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure response prevention therapy, and an array of innovative approaches.

With compassion, empathy, humor, and wisdom, James chronicles his more than three decades of getting the right help while living with OCD. He found that OCD robbed him of trust and infused him with fears and phobias about people, places, and things and debilitating anxiety. He simply didn’t trust life. He regained that trust by using helpful tools to reclaim his power—to trust himself again. In this book, he shares those tools to help with your recovery.

Nice stars uh? And most, will look at my photograph and "buy" that these are actual stars. They are not. Some digital dark room magic going on here. But, it looks cool - and maybe you believe it. Lots of art is enhanced or photo- shopped or whatever and we still "choose" to believe it because it is pleasing to our eye. Key words here; "we choose to believe it". OCD gives me false messages or obsessions almost daily - and some actually get though to my belief system. Then, I have to self talk myself down with facts. We do have choice you know. It's an art with OCD recovery to practice not buying into a fear or obsession. And, not choosing to believe it. OCD always distorts reality. I would go as far as saying -it always lies to us. I have to catch myself all the time and choose to not go along with the distortion. Not easy - but easier with practice. When I look up at the night sky I'm seeing star light from millions, billions, trillions of years ago - the actual star may not even be there. But the light is real. I choose to believe in the light. We do have choice to believe or not - practice it. I will too. JC <3 ... See MoreSee Less
