Triggered: A memoir of OCD Review- Condescending, Prentious and adolescent all at the same time.....

Triggered: A Memoir of Obsessive-Compulsive DisorderTriggered: A Memoir of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder by Fletcher Wortmann
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

First let me say that his descriptions of OCD disorder are spot on for anyone who has suffered with it or lived with someone who suffers from it. I really saw a lot of points in this book for those who suffer from OCD or even other serious and life interfering mental health issues. However the draw back for me was his tone. I could not connect with him as a person, I felt a lot of narccism seeping through and found his tone to be both pretentious and elitest at times. This is not to say that he did not bare his soul, I just really felt like he was talking down to the reader. Perhaps it was the fact of his youth when writing this a proviliged upbringing? I am not sure whatever it was I did not feel sympathetic to him but I did to his illness and struggles, if this makes sense?
