Quote – David Adam (The Man Who Couldn’t Stop)

Prosperity And Calamities

“It is not the accuracy of recall that matters in OCD, but a loss of confidence that those memories are true. People who carry out compulsive checks seem to trust their memory less, and the more they check, the more this distrust grows. It is another vicious cycle: memory uncertainty provokes the need to check, and to check increases memory uncertainty.” – The Man Who Couldn’t Stop: OCD and the True Story of a Life Lost in Thought by David Adam
