This is OCD Awareness Week and some of you have asked why I haven’t written about it. Here’s the ugly truth:
I’m tired of all these “awareness” weeks. I admire the people behind them, and for those who don’t really know the ins and outs of the disorder there’s value in dedicating seven days to enhanced awareness.
This is just a personal quirk of mine.
I guess my lack of enthusiasm is due to the fact that in this blog, every day is about OCD awareness. Therefore, what else can I say about OCD Awareness Week?
I know. I’m a bore.
I do want to thank the folks who are doing everything they can all the time to raise awareness, especially the folks at The International OCD Foundation. They do a lot of great work, and you should follow their efforts here.
