About this author

In 2007, Fletcher Wortmann was diagnosed with crippling Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), characterized by runaway intrusive thoughts with no visible compulsions. After receiving treatment at the McLean Hospital OCD Institute, Fletcher went on to receive his BA in English Literature from Swarthmore College in 2009; he wrote his senior thesis on the evolution of the superhero in American culture.

Fletcher lives and writes in Philadelphia, PA and is working toward his MFA in Creative Writing at Temple University. Fletcher also performs with the New York/Philadelphia-based sketch comedy group The Disappointments. He remains cautiously optimistic.

“An institution is right or it is wrong. One that cannot accept dinosaur bones is one that cannot be trusted on more important matters.”
Fletcher Wortmann, Triggered: A Memoir of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

“Tell me: How do you know that you won't be killed by a falling meteor? How do you know that you shut off the toaster oven this morning? That one of the seething millions of bacteria on your hands will not kill you? That your friends don't all secretly hate you? Do you have a religion? Do you have right religion? Are you sure? Are you a pedophile, a necrophiliac, a rapist? A murderer? How can you know that these tendencies do not dwell latent inside you, waiting for the right moment to evince themselves in the most horrific manner possible? How do you know that you are not a monster? How do you know that it isn't the end of the world?”
