Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

LITERARY REMEDIES AND BOOKS ON OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER

 

Turtles All the Way Down (Fiction) by John Green

An ambitious, authentic and perhaps cathartic piece of fiction, from the prolific author, that thoughtfully weaves together a story about sixteen year old Aza and a fugitive billionaire whose mystery she painstaking tries to solve with her best friend Daisy. The story details the daily struggles of living with obsessive-compulsive disorder and provides a painstaking accurate narrative of what it feels like to be a teenager with unrelenting anxiety. If you are someone who struggles with anxiety, you may find yourself identifying with Aza in a surprisingly startling way. 

The book will make you want to be a better person after and perhaps looking at life from a refreshingly different perspective.

A big hello and thank you for reading! Passionate about literature, psychology, and life I launched Book Therapy as an alternative form of therapy using the power of literature. I create reading lists/personalised book prescriptions based on your individual needs, this is my signature personalised reading service. My book recommendations have featured in The Guardian, NBC News and Marie Claire. You can also check out Book Therapy’s free reading lists and A- Z of book prescriptions (covering both fiction and non-fiction). These suggest books based on your existing life situation (e.g. anxiety, job change, relationship heartache) as well as interests (e.g memoir, historical fiction, non-fiction, crime etc). There’s also a Children’s A — Z of Book Prescriptions. Feel free to check out the blog for more literary gems. There’s also a post on my personal story of how I entered the world of bibliotherapy and book curation. And if you’d like to connect, email me at bijal@booktherapy.io or www.booktherapy.io.
