Quest for Wellness


Obsessive Compulsive Disorder




thoughts take hold of my hand, and

lead me across the street where

shades who are, and have yet to be


ring-around-the-rosy whilst

dancing in the daylight—

so bold have they grown to

stray away from night.


What medicine exists


side of death that can save me?


Every day I armor myself in

quest for wellness.


See the fire in my footprints.

  1. Kindra… oh my. Are you also a sufferer? You can know someone for so long yet know so little of what you have in common D: This was wonderful, merciless writing.

    1. Thank you, Henna. Yes, this is my life. And you’re right. I’m just now realizing how little I know of those whom I admire. ❤

      1. I can relate very hard. It was hell for me until I got medicated. I also love the Ring around the Rosies reference. I used to compare OCD to the plague too. All the strength to you!

      2. I’m waiting to get into my doctor for a med adjustment. I’m sending you all of my love, dear heart! ❤


  2. Impressive! You perfectly encapsulated the idea of how this disorder affects people in their daily lives. I know several people that suffer from this, and these are the kinds of posts that give them strength & hope to continue.
