Amen Amen Amen Memoir of a Girl Who Couldn't Stop Praying Among Other Things review ✓ 109 Abby Sher ó 9 characters Until the age of ten Abby Sher was a happy child in a fun loving musical family But when her father and favorite aunt pass away Abby fills the void of her loss with rituals kissing her father's picture over and over each night washing her hands counting her steps and collecting sharp objects that she thinks could harm innocent pedestrians Then she begins to pray At first she repeats the few phrases she remembers from synagogue but by the time she is in high school Abby is spending hours locked in her closet urgently reciting a series of incantations and pleas If she doesn't she is sure someone else will die too T. This book shows us how devastating the effects of OCD can be on a person s life It started for Abby at a very young age and then grew over the years until it took over her days and made it impossible for her to have a normal childhood and to experience the fun side of university My heart went out to Abby the beautiful little girl with elfin face who adored her daddy who was taken from her so early Abby had a close relationship with her mother who was always there to listen to her lists of worries and fears of what she may have done during the day Abby had a strong Jewish faith which in some ways added to her inhibitions but in others was a great support I can understand how she clung to her religion I would certainly hold on to my Catholic faith if I was as frightened as she was G d I write it this way out of respect for Abby s faith I learnt from this book why Jews don t write His name in full was a constant in her life and talking to Him was at least a small release a way of getting things off her overburdened conscience Telling Him her imagined faults at least have her a small respite from self blame Of course when this became a ritual which she had to do for hours each day then it added to her troubles When Abby started to include the tight regulation of food in her daily regime her life was totally taken over by the cruel illness and her love for her mother did become a bit suffocating I was routing for Abby to get well and find happiness in her life and I realised that I also have my little rituals and needs to pray for certain things We are all potentially at risk of being tipped over the edge by some traumatic event in our lives
