I began writing with the intention of making sense of my story for myself, but, at its conclusion, I also believe it may have a value to others. In particular, it may be of worth to others OCD sufferers. I know I found such books helpful in the past. The fact I demonstrably show meaning to have been underlying my symptoms, which I was able to comprehend & overcome, may also be a message others with OCD would find of interest. In the professional sphere, counsellors & psychotherapists may be challenged by the extent of my self-analysis, which draws it's inspiration from Freud's "On the interpretation of dreams".
