The Woman Who Thought Too Much : A memoir

Author(s): Joanne Limburg

Biography & Memoir

Joanna Limburg is a woman who thinks things she doesn't want to think, and who does things she doesn't want to do. The Woman Who Thought Too Much follows Limburg's quest to understand her Obsessive-Complusive Disorder and to manage her symptoms. She takes the reader on a journey through consulting rooms, libraries and internet sites, as she learns about rumination, scrupulosity, avoidance, thought-action fusion, fixed-action patterns, anal fixations, schemas, basal ganglia, tics and synapses. Meanwhile, she does her best to come to terms with an illness which turns out to be common and even - sometimes - treatable. This vividly honest memoir is a sometimes shocking, often humorous revelation of what it is like to live with so debilitating a condition. It is also an exploration of the inner world of a poet and an intense evocation of the persistence and courage of the human spirit in the faec of mental illness. Paperback 320pp h210mm x w148mm
