"Time equals progression - progression equals death." This mantra held Ed Zine prisoner in the basement of his father's Cape Cod home. A handsome, athletic twenty-four-year-old suffering from a debilitating form of obsessive-compulsive disorder, he thought that going forward in time moved him closer to death, and that reversing the action would prevent it. Trapped in a ritualistic nightmare, Zine would spend nearly ten hours a day making the 16,384 precise movements necessary to get from his bed to the bathroom. Then he met Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Michael Jenike. One of the world's leading OCD physicians, Jenike took on Ed Zine's seemingly impossible case, breaking medicine's cardinal rule in the process: he offered the tragically disabled young man not only his professional help . . . but his friendship and trust, which ultimately led Zine to create his own coping skills to heal himself. Life in Rewind is a miraculous true story of commitment and determination, darkness and hope, love and inspiration.
