Am I Normal Yet by Holly Bourne

I have recently finished a book entitled Am I Normal Yet by Holly Bourne, where the protagonist is dealing with her severe OCD and generalized anxiety while trying to start over at college as a normal girl.

This quote I’m about to share is one of my favourites from the book, and something that I absolutely agree with. I don’t have severe OCD, mine is mild but I can’t help but get irritated to when OCD is being stereotype and being used to justify some things that doesn’t even disrupt their daily life.

“Because now people use the phrase OCD to describe minor personality quirks. “Oooh, I like my pens in a line, I’m so OCD.”
NO YOU’RE FUCKING NOT.
“Oh my God, I was so nervous about that presentation, I literally had a panic attack.”
NO YOU FUCKING DIDN’T.
“I’m so hormonal today. I just feel totally bipolar.”
SHUT UP, YOU IGNORANT BUMFACE.”
