It is normal to develop an obsession with things like germ, dirt or making sure that your house is properly locked.
However, for certain people, such concerns can lead to compulsive behaviours like hoarding items or repeated hand washing.
This compulsive behaviour can turn into a severe condition that can negatively affect your daily life. If you are suffering from these symptoms, there is a possibility that you have developed OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).
This Obsessive Compulsive Disorder can take multiple forms, which we have already mentioned.
OCD has four different stages, which includes:
Anxiety - You grow anxious or distressed at the thought of not acting upon this obsession
Obsession - Your mind repeatedly urges you to do something
Relief - Your anxiety goes away. However, this is only temporary and the cycle begins again at a later time
Compulsion - You act upon your obsessions to get rid of your anxiety
With many psychological conditions, people are quick to dismiss OCD sufferers, however, the person suffering from OCD can have a serious condition.
OCD is usually treated with the combination of both medication and CBT. Usually selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. If you believe that you have this problem or issue of OCD, do not hesitate to talk to a doctor, this problem is manageable and with the right help, you can live a perfectly normal life.
However, the exact reasons for the obsessive-compulsive disorder are not known yet, it is considered that a number of factors can contribute to the development of OCD.
For instance, some researches have shown that this problem is inherited by family members. In other words, it is passed down by families; genetics play a major role in it.
In the same way, the person having a problem of OCD has different brain chemistry from those who are living a normal life. Being specific it is an imbalance in the level of serotonin.
It is a common condition that affects thousands of people in the European Union. Moreover, both men and women can have this issue of OCD.
