What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)?
In OCD, sufferers experience repetitive, intrusive and unwelcome impulses and doubts which they find hard to ignore. Obsessions are the impulses people have which reoccur over and over again. Feeling excessively worried about the hands being dirty for example are obsessive feelings. In order to make the obsessive feelings go away the compulsions are performed. Excessively washing the hands are compulsions. Some common OCD's are touching, nail biting, excessive double-checking, counting, hand washing, cleaning, hoarding, praying and ordering/arranging.
Individuals with this disorder feel the urge to carry out specific actions such as hand washing, nail biting etc to release a build up of tension. The more an individual tries to stop carrying out the rituals the harder s/he would find it to stop and it worsens when the individual is under stress. Fortunately there is a cure for this disorder.
How do these feelings originate?
At times subconsciously we carry out certain tasks in order to make us feel comfortable in facing a certain situation. A bats man in a game of cricket may tap the cricket pitch with his bat a couple of times before facing the fast paced bowler. He consciously knows that tapping the cricket pitch with his bat isn't going to improve his batting but it simply makes him feel comfortable. The feeling of an OCD sufferer falls in the same category. The problem with OCD is that these feelings are negative feelings and the more we try to stop them the harder we find trying to stop, thus becoming a vicious circle.
Any situation that provokes anxiety people tend to have recurring thoughts. At times, especially when a person is feeling really emotional, these thoughts can become so strong that they start to effect undertaking simple tasks which then further increase the anxiety level. If these recurring thoughts continue for a length of time they could turn into a vicious cycle that a person finds difficult to break.
