Nowhere Near Normal: A Memoir of OCD

TUESDAY 7/12/11- When is odd personal behavior (such as repetitive hand-washing) a symptom of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder? Traci Foust wasn't a "normal" seven-year-old girl. When all the neighborhood kids were playing outdoors, Traci was inside, going through her repetitive rituals, organizing her things, and constantly worrying about safety and hygiene. As Traci got older, her OCD blossomed to include panic attacks and other bizarre behaviors, including a fear of the sun, and the idea that she could catch herself on fire just by thinking about it. Now, Traci has chronicled her ongoing struggle with OCD in the new book, "Nowhere Near Normal: A Memoir of OCD."
