"Meghan, Yes of course you need to read the whole book :). Seriously, though, OCD is not what most people think it is. It is not a mildly annoying, cute, quirky disorder. It is the most misunderstood and misrepresented mental health issue around. OCD…"

Mickie Sherwood commented on the blog post '[NETWORKING FOR INTROVERTS] What are you afraid of?'
"Meghan, Your hesitancy to write about race is understandable. I'm a Black woman with my own take on race. Now, add to that, I'm a Baby Boomer. So, whether Black or White, young or not so young, it takes courage to start a discussion on…"
