OCD - Tips to Deal With it!

OCD - Tips to Deal With it!

OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is an anxiety disorder, which can be indicated through obsession, having pervasive thoughts or thoughts, which may upset you, having certain compulsions, and practicing certain rituals, which may help to control or manage your obsessions. It is a disorder, which cannot be cured, but can be controlled with the help of treatment. Mostly, OCD is considered to be a lifelong disorder. It often circulates around the fear of germs or sickness and around keeping order and maintaining patterns.

He/she experience Doubt

Here's how it works. The person experience an unwanted thought which suggests the possibility of a catastrophic problem. For instance:

  1. What if I left the stove on, and the neighborhood burns?
  2. What if I got insecticide on my hands, and my family gets poisoned?
  3. What stops me from taking the carving knife and stabbing my spouse?
  4. What if I got poked by a needle infected with HIV?

These are thoughts about catastrophes. Naturally, you want to set them aside, and assure yourself that all is well.

And you try. You try very hard, very repetitively, to persuade yourself that all is well. You probably recognize that the thoughts are pretty exaggerated, even silly. But you keep trying to get rid of them. You try to feel absolutely sure that they're false. Even though you've never experienced these problems in the past, you want somehow to be certain that they will never happen in the future.

Here are some Tips that can help you in overcoming OCD

  1. Consult a qualified Psychiatrist: A qualified Psychiatrist is the only person who can diagnose and answer your question “Do I have OCD?” Fortunately, effective medicines are available now that can certainly help you overcome OCD. One important thing is, even if the medicines are taking time to work, consult your psychiatrist. Inform your Psychiatrist and he will make necessary changes in the prescription.   
  2. Educate Yourself about OCD: There’s no substitute for being an informed patient. Your understanding of OCD, and of the treatment method, will be a key to your progress. If you’re going to overcome OCD, you need to become an informed consumer.
  3. Don’t be alone: OCD sufferers tend to do some compulsions to overcome their anxiety and these rituals are silly and awkward, that is why to avoid embarrassment such personally prefer to stay indoors. But staying indoors makes your mind locked in an OCD viscous cycle and it becomes difficult to break the cycle.
  4. Meditation: Meditation is an ancient relaxation method that can do wonders for you in overcoming OCD.
  5. Never neglect 3 practices: Regular Exercise, Healthy Diet and Sound sleep. 
  6. Stop comparing yourself with others: it’s human nature to compare ourselves with others. Everyone has problems, difficulties. But they might be hiding there their sorrows, worries behind a mask, conveniently. Do not judge their quality of their happiness by looking at their external appearance. 
  7. Find the cause: Find the real hidden reason for your anxiety, and take measures to reduce it. Sometimes chronic depression, childhood trauma, lack of sufficient sleep, etc. might be the reason. 
  8. Help others: You will feel the satisfaction when you help others and see their smile. 
  9. Don’t control your thoughts: Rather, control your reactions. And, Be happy, remain positive. 
  10. Listen to music: Music has the tremendous power of healing and it diverts your mind. 
  11. Do believe in the theory of KARMA: do your duties, don’t worry about results.

Dear lybrate-user, Please do not stop medication without consulting psychiatrist. You may have some concerns about your medicine but you can always discuss with your doctor. Self-medication and decision about stopping medicine can contribute to the relapse. Please do take an appointment with a psychologist which will help you to develop the behavioral skill sets and you will learn to cope up with the dysfunctional thoughts and moods ups & down etc. For further info feel free to contact.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder is characterised by unreasonable thoughts and fears (obsessions) that lead to compulsive behaviours. OCD often centres on themes such as a fear of germs or the need to arrange objects in a specific manner. Symptoms usually begin gradually and vary throughout life. Treatment includes talk therapy, medication or both.

Hello sir, you asked me to be more clear about my anxiety condition. As I have mentioned earlier that I am asocial person so I have limited people in my life. I was advised by local doctor last year to enhance my social circle try socializing which has only lead to develop some expectations and has made me more social. I have a body shivering problem. I can not figure out the reason of sour relations with everyone including my parents which is disturbing me. Most of the time pessimistic no matter how much I try making it positive. Also have to deal with future oriented anxiety. Its been 6 days of chronic headache due to my decision of quiting smoking. No one is happy with me.

Good Morning ~ I am glad your social anxiety disorder or social phobia is gradually getting better and you are socializing more. Body shivering or tremors can be due to anxiety attacks or panic attacks and this can be easily treated with either therapy or medications. I recommend a combination of both which is more effective. With regards to your parents and your problems with relationship with them I would have to learn more so that I can understand and try to help with your condition a bit better. Underlying depression may be the cause of pessimism and procrastination, along with social phobia. Anticipatory anxiety which is being worried about becoming worried is something which needs to be treated medically.

Anorexia- How to treat it

Anorexia- How to treat it

Anorexia is one of the most common eating disorders plaguing a large section of today's youth. Anorexia is one such condition which arises as a psychological ailment and then culminates as serious physical manifestations. One of the most prominent preconditions of anorexia is the severe dissatisfaction with your body. The desire to lose weight constantly reigns supreme in your mind. So much so, that all that you can permit yourself to eat and all that you can't pre-occupies your mind entirely. This extensively impairs your social life and threatens your potential in all other aspects of life. This undermines your health and self-confidence tremendously and inflicts a distorted body image complex upon your psyche.

Under the spell of anorexia, you tend to dread even the slightest weight gain and consequently, it builds a sense of self-disgust in you. It can be an extremely stressful and harmful physical condition, gravely affecting your moments of joy and happiness. Drastic diets, excruciating exercising or using laxatives and diuretics could be some of the most common leeways into anorexia. The terror which looms around your weight gain will disable you from acknowledging how thin you are or for that matter, appreciating the body that you have. This may not only jeopardize your normal body functioning but also subjugate you to acute emotional distress and depression. What is worse is that anorexia works in such insidious ways that in most cases, one doesn't even realize the existence of the problem. The first and foremost step to recovery is to avoid anything and everything that may trigger the condition. Other recourses that one may take have been enlisted below.

  • Realizing the difference between dieting and anorexia: Anorexia often indicates deeper problems like depression and insecurities and the eating disorder simply emerges as a consequence of the same. Dieting does not entail an austere denial of food to self or completely throttling all of one's hunger pangs. Fulfilling the basic nutritional needs of your body as against starvation is the first step to recovery.
  • Seeking advice from well-wishers: If your loved ones seem perplexed about your health conditions, know all of it is well founded. Learn to acknowledge the fuzzy body images that afflicts you and take proactive steps towards combating them. Share your problems with your trusted ones and learn to adopt a healthier way of living. Join some productive engagement that will keep your mind off such baseless weight obsession.

Homoeopathic medicines can help reduce the withdrawal symptoms. Take nux Vomica 30 1 dose every week. It is better to take proper consultation.

Your prescription needs revision, consult a psychiatrist and get the best medicine which helps to control the symptoms and does not produce any unpleasant effects. But give your psychiatrist few reviews to get the right one as different people respond differently. Also your need to wait for 1-3 months for significant improvement. All the best.
