The revealing story of one man's struggle with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and his hard-won recovery. Rewind, Replay, Repeat is the revealing story of Jeff Bell's struggle with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and his hard-won recovery. Nagging doubt: It's a part of everyday life. Who hasn't doubled back to check on a door or appliance? But what if one check wasn't enough? Nor two or three? And what if nagging doubt grew so intense that physical senses became all but useless? Such was the case for Bell, a husband, father, and highly successful radio news anchor--and one of the millions of Americans living with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). His fascinating memoir recounts the depths to which this debilitating anxiety disorder reduced him--to driving his car in continuous circles, scouring his hands in scalding water, and endlessly rewinding, replaying, and repeating in his head even the most mundane daily experiences. Readers will learn what OCD feels like from the inside, and how healing from such a devastating condition is possible through therapy, determination, and the support of loved ones.

Reviews

"Jeff Bell is an excellent and experienced radio newsman. But of all the many fascinating stories he has reported over the years, none is more bizarre or more compelling than the one he tells here. Furthermore, it is an exclusive. Only Jeff could possibly tell it because it is an account of his own struggle with his own worst enemy, whose name is Doubt." --Charles Osgood, CBS News Sunday Morning anchor "A page-turner for anyone interested in obsessive-compulsive disorder. Beautifully written and gripping in its intensity, it takes the reader on the perilous adventure of the fight against OCD. Jeff Bell enlists us on his journey: his sense of humor, irony, and reporting skills make this book a 'must read.'" --Judith l. Rapoport, MD, author of The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Washing "This is an epoch-making book. It is one of the most incisive memoirs ever written on the experience of mental illness, and by far the best first-person account available on life from the point of view of the OCD sufferer. Jeff Bell has scaled the heights of narrative memoirs, conveying the excruciating details of the inner life of a man whose brain is on fire." --Jeffrey M. Schwartz, MD, author of Brain Lock and The Mind and the Brain "In a most sensitive way, Jeff Bell explains what it's like to be inside of his own self-made prison and describes his efforts to heal himself. His emphasis on his own spirituality and his willingness to change his attitude will shine light on the road to recovery for the many people afflicted with this disorder." --Gerald G. Jampolsky, MD, author of Love Is Letting Go of Fear
