A Letter to My Child as She Fights the Beast of OCD

To my daughter who battles the darkness of anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) at a mere 8 years old. I see you, I see your struggle.

I see the worry in your body language, I see it in the quiet of your eyes. I see it in the way you escape to your room and beg not to talk, when you joke that you are simply being antisocial.

I see it in the way anxiety also has the opposite effect, when you wake me up terrified of the nighttime because your stress is at an imploding level.
