Overcoming OCD: A Journey to Recovery…Some News and a Book Giveaway!

Overcoming OCD: A Journey to Recovery was first published in January 2015 and has reached many people in the United States and beyond. I am happy to announce that the book is now being published in paperback and will be available September 2017. I’m not sure of the actual release date yet, but will keep you posted!

To celebrate this event, I am holding a Book Giveaway! My plan is to give away two signed hardcover copies of Overcoming OCD: A Journey to Recovery to readers of my blog. Everyone is eligible. Just leave a comment below this post before the deadline of August 23, 2017. I will then randomly pick two commenters to receive the books and the winners will be announced on my blog.

Good luck to all!

    I’m new to this world of OCD – my 13 year old was recently diagnosed. I appreciate all the info I’ve gotten so far through your blog and would love to read your book! Thanks for the chance!

    Reblogged this on The Militant Negroโ„ข.

    Your blog has literally saved my son Jacob’s life (he just turned 17). He was plagued by severe intrusive thoughts but nobody knew, he was silent about them. He’s been in an IOP ERP treatment program and it’s helping him. We have a long road ahead but he’s getting the right treatment and is learning to deal better with his condition. Thank you!!!!

    • Thank YOU Lisa for sharing. I’m so glad you found my blog helpful and am so happy Jacob is getting the right help. I wish you both as smooth a journey as possible……he is on his way!

  7. Janet, you have become such an important advocate and resource for OCD awareness. Congratulations and best wishes to you and to Dan for your continued success. We at The OCD Foundation of Michigan thank you for your outreach. We’d love to promote and review your book in our newsletter.

    We have a daughter who was diagnosed last year right before her 13th birthday, so we are approaching the one-year mark. We were broadsided by her two weeks of withdrawal, sadness, and depression and found she had begun self-harming. We were lucky to have a good school counselor she could talk to, and I then reached out to OCD International and met a wonderful woman through our local group who has been literally a life saver for our family. She directed us to a wonderful ERP therapist and sent us information links – including yours. We read, cried, learned, and found a good psychiatrist. The struggle continues because now our daughter is almost 14 (going on 25) and knows everything – just like her almost 17-yr-old know-it-all brother, but with the added perk of the OCD.

    Thank you for sharing with us and making us know we are not – neither kids nor parents – going this alone. It helps. We’d love to read your book; it’s one we don’t yet have!

    • Thanks for sharing, Teresa, and I’m so glad your daughter got the right help so quickly. As I’m sure you know, this isn’t always the case with OCD. Good luck as you move forward – you are definitely not alone!

    Congratulations on your getting the word out to so many people. You speak so well for parents and other people who love us. You are very clear and also open to new perspectives. Thank you Janet, best Lorre

    My mother has suffered from OCD for my entire life, and I hope to write a book someday about my own experiences because few people have any idea what it is like for a family member. Thanks for sharing your story. I will definitely be looking into reading this.

  14. Carole says:

    Dear Janet Singer,
    Your book is the first one I recommend because it deals with both the intelligence and feelings of desperate parents, family members and friends of loved ones suffering with OCD. There is no paucity of OCD information, but which to follow, whom to believe, and where to turn is confusing. Your book boldly faces the conflicting opinions (including your own!). Thank you for sharing your story and best wishes for the continuation.
    Carole

  15. Patricia O'Beirne says:

    Thank you for all you have done and are doing to spread hope and information for those living with OCD and caregivers around them. I often find that your posts address an issue that I am trying to figure out in relation to my brother’s OCD and they are very helpful! Keep up the great work.

  16. Thanks for all your writing and advocacy work!
    -Morgan
