This could be the saddest, most uplifting and inspiring thing you'll see all day!
Neil Hilborn, a poet with obsessive compulsive disorder, has gone viral with a heartbreaking poem about falling in love!
He performed OCD in June, during the individual finals at the 2013 Rustbelt Regional Poetry Slam.
In the piece, Neil explains how tough it is to deal with love and relationships while suffering from OCD:
The first time I saw her everything in my head went quiet. All the tics, all the constantly refreshing images just disappeared. When you have obsessive compulsive disorder you don't really get quiet moments… When I saw her, the only thing I could think about was hairpin curve of her lips or the eyelash on her cheek, eyelash on her cheek, eyelash on her cheek.
