Description : 26 years of rituals, sleepless nights, battle after battle are described in this personal account of a generation of life lived under the impairment of OCD. Fit within the context of childhood through parenthood, this deeply descriptive autobiography delves into the possible causes and definite effects of a painful illness that can only be lived, not imagined. Yet the reader is led to live this account through Mr. Dahlberg's vivid descriptions of a life still fully-lived in spite of the battles against this intimidating enemy. In the end, David Dahlberg shows it is possible to defeat this enemy, and yet to also express the vigilance required to keep it at bay. Neither "just" about OCD or a purely personal description, the symptoms, treatment and introspections of one man's OCD are here for all to follow. This is the Second Edition, which has been extensively re-written, focused, and brought up-to date. A friend of Mr. Dahlberg's joked that only someone with OCD would be compelled to re-write his own book about OCD. Nonetheless a good read has been re-worked into an even more compelling one. "One of my favorite things about reading a great book is when it pulls you in right away...I gave 'Life In A Whirlwind Of Numbers' a five star rating because the stories read well enough to be a great fictional novel...It is a real inspiration to read, especially because it is a true success story"--Janet Reeves, Reader Views, readerviews.com.
