– Author Bryony Gordon opens up about her struggles with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
After suffering with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) for 20 years, best-selling author and journalist Bryony Gordon joins Lorraine to open up about her illness and discuss her new book, Mad Girl.
Mad Girl chronicles Gordon's journey from first showing signs of OCD at age 12, to being diagnosed at 17, to finally receiving the correct treatment for her illness at 34.
A journalist since the age of 19, it was only last year that Gordon wrote about her OCD for the first time. In the book, Gordon documents her personal struggles, including her battle with addiction and an eating disorder, and she stresses the importance of getting the right help.
