Stop all contact with him. Delete his number from mobile, unfriend him on FB. Discard all the things related to him. Always try to remain in friends company. Or try to busy yourself in some activity. For counselling help do consult.

Dear lybrate user, you appear sad. There must be some reason why you are feeling like this at the age of 37 years. I think, probably you have become dependent on your medicines. You will need conscious efforts to taper it down after consulting your doctor. It will be very helpful if you start counselling sessions along with medication. The counsellor will help you to understand the root cause of your anxiety and then will help you to modify your thoughts and behaviour. This will reduce your anxiety. Once this is done, your doctor and your counsellor together can help you to get rid of medicines. All the best.

Obsessive-Compulsive Behaviour - How To Manage It?

Psychiatrist, Delhi
Obsessive-Compulsive Behaviour - How To Manage It?

Obsessive-Compulsive behaviour is form of anxiety disorder in which unreasonable thoughts and fears which are obsessions that lead one to do repetitive compulsive behaviour. Root causes of obsessive-compulsiveness are complex and often deep-seated. The underlying emotional states may include the fear of unknown, not being in control, negative outcomes, failure, rejection, shame, annihilation or embarrassment

One can eliminate mild obsessive compulsion easily, where as severe obsessive-compulsiveness, require support of medical and mental health professionals.

  • When one finds himself pondering or obsessing over an activity, one must try to stop the negative pattern, and provide control and security. A good anchor code stops an obsessive thought pattern, and provides fact-based security for new action. One can get it under control and recover from it, however at the present, there is no cure. It is a potential that will always be there in the background, even when one's life is no longer affected by it.
  • The treatment for obsessive compulsive behaviour depends on the how much the condition is affecting one's daily life. There are two main treatments, firstly cognitive behavioural therapy which involves graded exposure and response prevention and the second being medication. The cognitive behaviour therapy emboldens one to face ones fear and let the obsessive thoughts occur without neutralising them with compulsions. In second case, treatment is by medication to control one's symptoms by altering the balance of chemicals in brain.
  • Obsessive compulsive behaviour that has a relatively minor impact on one's daily life is usually treated with a short course of cognitive behavioural therapy. Cognitive behavioural therapy involves exposure and response prevention that is used to help people with all severities. People with mild to moderate behaviour usually need about 10 hours of therapist treatment, combined with exercises to be done at home between sessions. Those with moderate to severe symptoms may need a more intensive course of therapy that lasts longer than 10 hours.
  • During the sessions, one works with therapist to break down the problems into their separate parts like physical feelings, thoughts and actions. The therapist encourages you to face your fear and let the obsessive thoughts occur without putting them right. It requires motivation and one should start with situations that cause the least anxiety first. These exposure exercises need to take place many times a day, and need to be done for one to two hours without engaging in compulsions to undo them. People with Obsessive compulsive behaviour find that when they confront their anxiety without carrying the compulsion, the anxiety goes away. Each time, the chances of anxiety reduces and last for a shorter period of time. 
  • Once one has conquered one exposure task, one can move on to a more difficult task, until one has overcome all of the situations that make one anxious.  It's important to remember it can take several months before a treatment has a noticeable effect. It is extremely vital to remember that no one is perfect, nor can anyone recover perfectly.  Even in well-maintained recoveries, people can occasionally mess up and forget what they are supposed to be doing.

Dear Srikant. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. OCD is a neuro chemical disorder. Psychotherapy like behavior therapy and cognitive therapy, relaxation therapy, life style changes etc are combined together with medicines for a cure. 100% cure is possible with the above methods. In your case, you took medicines and did not use the other methods. That is why it came back. I assure you 100 percent cure provided you follow the instructions. The best method is what I gave you. Please do not delay. provide me more of your symptoms. Take care.

It is very often seen that stress and anxiety of performance also results in your kind of issues. U can do much better by joining some form of yoga or relaxation and by putting more attention on your hobbies and sharing your mind out with close friends or family members. If your symptoms persist contact a psychiatrist for therapy.

Sorry to hear that. Any loss is stressful specially when someone close to you. It does create the emptiness. Generally people cope up and adjust with the reality within 8 to 10 weeks. Please do take professional help. Take appointment with the psychologist or psychiatrist and plan few psychotherapy sessions. It will help you to overcome the grief and you will be able to work on the deep rooted thought regrading the loss. Please feel free to contact for further details. Suffering can't be the the option. Help is just one call away.

I want to take a depression quiz which will help me to understand which level of depression I'm exactly in. I need help. I can't concentrate anywhere. I'm getting thoughts of hurting myself or running away very often. This is maybe due to too much suffering. I had been hurting myself since 2012. For the last 1 years I didn't hurt myself because of some promise but now everyone around is fed up. I feel insane. I can't sleep at night and I'm lazy all day. I've absurd food habits and I can't stop thinking too deep, maybe over thinking. I can't control my mind or thoughts.
