A Life Interrupted

The Story of My Battle with Bullying and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

This is a unique story focusing on long term impact of bullying on the human psyche.A Life Interrupted
The book also demonstrates how to overcome the impact of bullying and obsessive compulsive disorder.



The onset of my OCD occurred in May 1992 at the age of 16. For the first five years of my mental illness, my single greatest struggle and obstacle became simply telling someone what was going on. Before long, merely managing to function through an average day became the greatest challenge of all. I was finally able to discuss this openly at the age of 21 in 1997, and got started with the therapy and medication that I needed to defeat OCD. At last, I was able to change my pessimistic perspective, willingly engage in cognitive behavioral therapy and begin to make significant progress with my illness. During this time period, I was also able to look up and confront my very worst bully from childhood. This most fascinating, revealing encounter helped me to finally deal with the bullying and with the PTSD from my past. Eventually, I was able to derive a lasting positive impact after spending only 16 days in Rogers inpatient treatment facility – a positive impact that has lasted throughout the past several years of my life. It is my profound hope that victims of bullying, OCD sufferers, family members, mental health professionals and general readers are all able to learn and benefit from reading this most unique book.
