This is the account upon which I based my memoir Demons of the mind: A Memoir of An Obsessive-Compulsive. This short autobiographical account of my life as a sufferer of OCD was originally written for a phobic group that now no longer exists.
After writing this a friend suggested that it might form the basis of a book, which from than onwards I spent the next twelve years struggling to complete often interrupted by illness including OCD, severe headaches and migraine. I thought it might be a good idea to include the original short autobiography entitled My Story as not everyone may wish to read through my extensive five hundred page memoir. It has been updated to reflect the present situation and I have added appropriate quotations relating to OCD and from OCD sufferers in selected places throughout the document. However for a full and detailed account of my experiences as a sufferer of OCD you are advised to read the complete memoir.
