Poem by Julia Melidossian: OCD

by Quotes to Remember: Anchor Counseling Center on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 at 10:35pm

Many people have heard of OCD,

But few of them know how debilitating it can be.

It could start with hand washing cycles of four,

But after awhile, you have to wash eight times more.

Or eating your food in a particular way,

Just to be sure no one dies that day.

Completing everything in multiples of two,

Is certainly a time consuming thing to do.

The brain is telling you these rituals make sense,

But continuing to do them just makes you tense.

But you may be very surprised to know,

There is a way to let these compulsions go.

Resisting the ritual is the hardest thing to do,

And you may think its something you’ll never get through.

But believe me, friend, if you work super hard,

The compulsions will ease, and you’ll let down your guard.

Trust me, I’ve been there and I can totally relate,

But soon OCD will subside, and you will feel great.
