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.

It’s never hopelessness

OCD 101. Class one. I retired from teaching college about two years ago after 37 years. So forgive me for the 101 thing. It’s kind of a habit. I never liked complexity so I tried to teach simply - even if the subject was complex. Ok here goes. What are the basics to know about this disorder? 1. You are NOT crazy or out of touch with reality. A processing part of your brain is out of balance. The disorder is neurobiological. That means it isn’t your fault and you can do something about it. 2. We all suffer with anxiety. It is an anxiety disorder. Anxiety…well, let me put it in clinical terms - sucks! But, we can manage it with ERP, CBT, medication, meditation and/or mindfulness. 3. You and I can have a life in spite of the disorder. Truly. It takes some education and daily work but, never ever believe that it is hopeless. There’s lots of hope to be had but you have to participate. It’s called, short-term discomfort for long-term comfort. I’m not going to lie to you , it is going to be tough for awhile but never hopeless. Get help and support, even online and work at not being afraid of facing fears, we all do it daily it’s part of the job of getting better. There are no tests in my class OCD 101 - only compassion.
