At OCD Action we often get people sending us poems, stories, books, art and a whole range of creative and inspirational work. For many people, being creative is an excellent way to express their feeling about OCD and how it impacts on their lives. In this area of the website, we invite you to submit your own creative work and share it with a wider audience. For now we can only take words but soon we hope to give you the opportunity to up-load images, video and audio. Your submissions will go to our volunteer editor for approval before they are posted below, if you wish to post pictures alongside your work, please email them across to email@example.com.

They censor everything I say
I can’t leave them behind
Wish I could take a... Read More
