Bent, Not Broken by William R. Potter

"Bent, Not Broken" exemplifies the power of love. 

Dwayne's story gives the reader an inside look at the world of a person suffering from daily anxiety associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder. Reading this story, I felt transported inside Dwayne's head as he agonizes and overcompensates in the oppressive world he creates.

Dwayne spirals out of control when he tries to manage his anxiety and compulsive behavior. His self-administered treatment involves maintaining complete order in his environment, counting exercises, and avoiding even numbers. The ridiculous taunting administered by juvenile co-workers only adds to his misery and a difficult existence. His fantasies range from euphoric to bleak as his mind races over infinite possibilities and scenarios concerning each event in his life.

Dwayne's life takes a turn for the better when he meets someone who is willing to take the time to love and understand him. A love affair that unfolds gently and sweetly leads to Dwayne's healing and future recovery. An absorbing and profound story, "Bent, Not Broken" exemplifies the power of love.
