There's a poem you must read called, OCD by Neil Hilborn.
Do you or someone you know suffer from a mental illness? If you do or know someone who does, then you know that mental illness manifests itself in everybody differently, but that it is a difficult thing to deal with. I personally think it is so important to understand mental illness from different perspectives. Like Neil’s.
