In preparation for the launch of Check Mates: A Collection of Fiction, Poetry and Artwork about Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, by People with OCD, we asked you to send us your own stories and poetry about live with a nervous disorder.

The winning entry is a poem entitled ‘Tired’ by Diane Cornell, and can be read here.

As the winner, Diane received a free copy of Check Mates, available for sale on Amazon.
