Ever been afraid to use the word ‘delectable’ in a sentence after JonBenet Ramsey said it the night before she was murdered in the JonBenet Ramsey Lifetime Original Movie? Ever have to shout ‘green car green car green car’ every time a green car zooms down the street? I’m gonna be real– if so, you might have OCD. Like me! Hi, I’m Olivia Levine and I suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. We’ve all heard about the classic stuff– the hand washing, the touching, the counting. But most of us haven’t heard about other ways it can manifest. Like a fear of accidentally causing violent harm to a loved one, the fear that using a particular word might result in the death of your best friend. Killing people with your vagina germs! Accidentally impregnating your mother! The list goes on! And the list looks WILDY different from person to person. Unstuck: A One Woman Show About Growing Up With OCD explores the comedy, the tragedy and the beauty of a very misunderstood and under-represented disorder.
