Adventures of a Germophobe

Adventures of a Germophobe's picture

About Me


My name is Gemma, and I am in my early 40’s. As of January 2013, I am an office assistant and a college student. My college English class is where I discovered that I enjoy writing. I did not think that I wanted to write about myself, but I believe my stories about dealing with obsessive-compulsive disorder are worth sharing. They promote understanding of the inner workings of the mind of the germophobe. If even one person finds something valuable in these accounts, my time has not been wasted.
