Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) creates repeated unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and the urge for repeated actions (compulsions). Some affected can have both symptoms of obsessions and compulsions. For example, an obsession can be believing that particular colours or number is bad, while a compulsion can be an urge to keep washing hands after even the slightest physical contact. Obsessions and compulsions are considered problematic if they cause you agitation, take up your time and interfere with your life.
Why early diagnosis is important?
Since there is no cure for OCD, it’s important to be diagnosed early. It’s not certain what causes OCD and is more common in women than men and generally appears in teens and young adults. OCD can be difficult to diagnose as it’s similar to personality disorders, schizophrenia, and other disorders. Hence an appropriate diagnosis is necessary for speedy recovery.
Medication: Anti obsession medications help to prevent OCD coming back as long as it is taken.
Therapy: Exposure and response prevention i.e. a therapy to stop compulsive behaviour and anxieties from strengthening each other.
Cognitive Therapy: Psychological treatment which helps to change the reaction to thoughts instead of trying to get rid of them.
Record the thoughts and listen or read them every day regularly for half an hour until anxiety reduces.
Resist compulsive behaviour but not obsessive thoughts
Do not get in alcohol/self medications it does not help
