“Loving Someone with OCD” describes clearly what OCD looks like and how it affects not only the person with OCD, but the people closest to them. As someone whose husband has OCD, I love how this book explains that those closest to the sufferer can’t fix the problem themselves. They can only be supportive, stop enabling, and take care of themselves. In the end, it is only the person suffering from OCD who can make a lasting change in their lives. ~ Lina Jensen, IOCDF Family Membership
