Lost Boy Found : Overcoming My Ocd
by Andrew Puccetti




Overview -

Andrew Puccetti's life seemed perfect: he grew up in a loving Catholic community, his parents were happily married, and his childhood was good.

But this picture-perfect existence started to crack when Andrew began to suffer from intense hypochondria and anxiety.

After months of isolation, Andrew took the brave step of admitting himself to a psychiatric hospital. Diagnosed with OCD, major depressive disorder, and borderline personality disorder, Andrew could finally begin to take control of his life.In Lost Boy Found, Andrew courageously tells his story of navigating adolescence through the lens of mental illness and finding peace with his true self.
