RAJAN .. i HAVE FOUND A wonderful way ..infact, an easy and, do-it-yourself method to HELP one get out of this OCD .... the dirty doctors say, it is a psychological disease, requiring you to go to a therapist.. WHAT FOR? .. no not for them to pluck out the disease from you, if it is truly a disease.. but, for them to make money from you, .. and, suggest you to get rid of that symptom, by your own auto-suggestions. ... they might give you some affirmations.. at the max. now, .. so .. what you need to do is... take a sheet of paper, and start writing down all your successes, .. right from your childhood memories.. .. the day, when you went to school, without having to be nagged, .. the day, when you got the first claps... etc.. etc.. till this day. and, yet on another sheet, write down your failures, if any. be truthful to yourself.. -------------- that is all. FILE the papers away in safety. .. OCD is mostly triggered by a feeling of insecurity, and inferiority. That you are not properly recognised by the world.. might be the inner feeling. Let me tell you more, if you are interested.

I appreciate this but I disagree about OCD triggered by inferiority. Mostly OCD patients have a purpose completely unrelated to that. The purpose usually is something big and good. Like saving a life or something to that level. That is why OCD patients find it hard to stay away from the symptoms because they fear that something bad will happen. Also, that method is called NLP which is meant for you to overcome OCD for good, while your symptoms are relieved big time. I would say about only 40% of your original symptoms remained. Then you can do that.

I too am suffering from this. But I can tell you that I have improved big time over the past weeks. By the way it's called Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or OCD. These are tips from my psychiatrist 1. Try blocking the thought. It worked for me a couple of times. It might be hard at first but it takes practice. Like driving a car at first you have to consciously know the gears and pedals. After some time, you automatically do them. 2. OCD is stress driven disorder. So try to relax each day whatever way. My doctor told me to do breathing exercises for 15 minutes a day. Just deep breathing. 3. Take up sports. Muscle movement combined with the brain's thought of having to move and not just moving purposlessly releases endorphins that makes you happy. 4. Did you know that people who have OCD tend to have a much bigger brain capacity than a normal person? You can take up courses that interests you to give your brain enough to think about. When your brain gets bored, it generates its own thoughts to amuse itself. All brains act the same. But with OCD, you have innate ability to focus, to pay attention to details, to obsess about something because you feel that you need to do them. Also, it really helps if you consult a psychiatrist. These days, it is not a shameful thing anymore. OCD could be caused by evolution. The human's capacity to think is mutating to a different level that the environment doesn't offer enough to stimulate thinking anymore. Remember, OCD is a good thing, you just have to channel your obsessive thoughts to positive things. Like taking car of a child, or earning money. My doctor also said that it helps if you talk to yourself and talk in positive tones. Like "I can do this" or "I am the best" or "I feel happy". Hope i help. I understand how hard it is. I had this disorder since about the age of 9 and I still have it to this day at 26. But whatever happens, remember that you can live a normal life. about 4% of the population suffers from it and most of them live a normal and happy life.

Examples I can draw from myself are that I have recently enrolled myself to FLASH class. This is something I want to do, Design websites/Graphics. I also go running a little. I write a journal about what I did during the day. I have a mood chart rating the severity of elevated or down moods. I rate my OCD symptoms. I go out. Sometimes, a change in environment can help. Don't hesitate to PM me about this. I know how hard it is to have OCD.
