really liked it
bookshelves: way-true-helpful

i bought this because i have a sister with ocd and i wanted to be more helpful than just messing up her counting when we walk up stairs at the same time. as i read, i found surprising connections to my own bipolar self and behavior i'd sort of ignored. moving with the author through his days, it is easy to see how a person can rationalize and even encourage their own obsessive thoughts.

this book is a little light on how he learns to manage his mind. that is common with this sort of book. folks with mental illnesses often are so grateful for a return to "normal" life, whatever that may be, that they can't really put a finger on what it is that shifted and got them back to a good place. they just know it happened. but the exploration of bell's obsessive thoughts is incredibly helpful and rather interesting, as well.
