Psych Central Review of TriggeredPosted: February 13, 2012
The reviews are coming in quicker and quicker. Here’s a very sympathetic take from Psych Central, a venerable resource on mental health.
“Triggered: A Memoir of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder” is for anyone who is or knows someone who is suffering from mental illness of any type… It is difficult to judge this book because it is well-written by a man who could be writing fiction and making you laugh or cry depending on the moment… I think this book will bring many people to a new understanding of OCD because it is filled with interesting anecdotes and compelling sadness along with hopeful events.
The review includes specific, googlable references to the severity of my mental illness, which will probably not help my dating or employment prospects. I guess this stuff has to come out eventually. And it’s really good to know that the book’s resonating with others who struggle with mental illness.
