Writing about OCD


I had such a nice response to my Huffington Post piece on the Girls episode about Hannah’s relapse of OCD that I just had to write about it! It’s on the International OCD Foundation’s blog.

  1. Hi Alison, My name is Keith and I recently posted a response to your article (“I’m so OCD”) on the ocfoundation blog. I wrote an article about my life experience with ocd and just wanted to see if you could recommend where to send it if I want to get it published on the ocfoundation website. You can email me if you want to. Thanks very much. Keith .

    • Hi, Keith! I’m sorry, I forgot to write back. To be honest, I’m not really sure where you should send the article. The OCD Foundation asked me to write blog posts after I shared a Huffington Post article with them, so you could try doing that. I had just posted it to their Facebook wall and they then shared it themselves. You could maybe look into Psychology Today or publications like that. Good luck!

      • Alison,Thanks for the information. I’ll probably try what you suggested. Have a good day, Keith
