How to Control Obsessive Compulsive Disorder ??

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Control Obsessive Compulsive – This is a mental disorder in which a person becomes obsessed with discipline or perfection not only by him but expects the same from others as well. If certain things don’t happen, then he gets disturbed and remains obsessed with those thoughts. He keeps repeating a particular task or act again and again and remains worried while doing it. It requires the combined efforts of a counselor, a psychologist, and a Homoeopath to cure a person of this disorder.

Here was a professor who taught at a PG course. She was fond of discipline since her childhood, always striving for perfection. At first, her parents and family were proud of her behavior but later they feared it when it became an obsession with her. They feared something could go wrong if they didn’t do a certain task perfectly to her satisfaction. She arranged her books neatly after class, her mobile had to be kept in a straight line, she kept capping her pen again and again and repeatedly kept tucking her saree pallu. She frequently looked at the mirror. She was obsessed with omens and insisted things to happen a particular way. Her family was distraught. She became the laughing stock of her colleagues and friends who then started to avoid her. So much so that her husband and children were also fed up.

Her insistence for perfection had transformed into an obsession. The feeling of insecurity was the root cause of this behavior. A person obsessed with something tries to do it in a particular way come what may and gets disturbed if he can’t do it that way.  He sets unreasonably high benchmarks of perfection and struggles to achieve them. Some people are so obsessed with cleanliness that they repeatedly keep cleaning objects handled by others, even washing unused clothes, washing hands, etc.  The feeling of guilt, restlessness, and insecurity manifests itself in such a manner.
