Biography
Traci Foust knows OCD like the back of her hand (which, she estimates, she washed about a quarter million times in childhood). Think you've heard the "wildest, wackiest and worst" of OCD stories? Think again.

Growing up in the 1970s with an anxiety disorder that was only later diagnosed as obsessive compulsive lent a strange, disquieting edge to San Francisco author Foust's childhood. Inexplicable actions, such as locking her best friend in a hot car, then running away, prompted visits to psychologists, who first diagnosed Foust as schizophrenic; later in high school she found comfort in NyQuil and antihistamines, coming gradually to the realization that the compulsions waxed and waned depending on levels of stress. In her autobiography, Nowhere Near Normal, Foust pokes fun at her own sense of self-pity and describes the lack of empathy for others, giving readers an intimate look at OCD from the inside.
