It has been a few years since I published my first book titled “A Life Interrupted – the story of my battle with bullying and obsessive compulsive disorder”. But the contents of the book are still applicable today and are still very pertinent since bullying seems to be a continuing issue for many children around the country. My book was based on my two decades worth of painfully acquired expertise in dealing with bullying, anxiety, depression and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. I have written this book so people would know about the devastating long-term psychological impact of bullying. It can ruin the lives of victims for many years to come.

This book also talks about impact of bullying based on diversity/cultural differences as well as ways to battle bullying and/or OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). In fact it seems that anyone who appears to be different in one way or another, is likely to become a victim of bullying. I wanted everyone to know that bullying can have extensive long-term psychological impacts and therefore must be stopped.

The key messages in the book can be summarized as follows: (1) long-term devastating psychological impact of bullying can be significant, (2) bullying can cause PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) which can then lead to other mental health issues, (3) why bullies do what they do (I have a description in my book about a confrontation I had with a past bully), (4) bullying can torment a victim long after the school years are over.
