OCD is a disease characterized by intrusive obsessions and compulsions.
Can OCD Be Cured?
Yes. Many people treated with a combination of behavioral and drug therapy. Behavioral therapy is faced with frightening situations in order to reduce anxiety and compulsive behavior in laying more and longer periods. In some cases, people with obsessive-compulsive disorder “forget” how to do things normally. To change his or her behavior it is often helpful to have someone who would be an example of normal behavior. Your doctor may prescribe medicines. These drugs are appointed only for a short time in order to ease the condition, experienced by you in the fight against ritual.
Causes of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Obsessions occur when the contents of thoughts or impulses to action are constantly being imposed and cannot be suppressed or replaced, although it is clear that they are meaningless, or at least unreasonably dominate the thoughts and actions. Since these pulses are stable, they cause the overpowering fear. Pathological obsessions are not content, and their dominant character and the inability to get rid of them.
There are simple obsessional phenomena that are relevant to the field of normal psychological, and even in personality structures anancasts if persistently ringing sound, names, rhythms, or series of words, if you cannot stop counting the beats clock, the staircase steps or patterns on the carpet, because of love for the purity of each disorder is perceived pain, if they believe that we cannot leave the desk in a mess room or unwashed, and if they think with bitterness that could have made a mistake, if they believe that it is possible to remove unwanted situation in the future, to prevent its magic formulation, and thus protect (exclaiming three times – one, the one that). It also ranked as compulsive rituals by eating, smoking, lying down in bed and falling asleep – fixed habits, which are not perceived painful and that by their rejection of external influences, or may terminate without cause fear.
In this case, the content of pathological compulsion directed at minor events, the intensity is very different, but always accompanied by fear. The patient cannot keep away from his fears, he was no escape, no escape, he was given the power of fear. Pathological obsession manifested in thought (obsessions, compulsions presentation obsessions), in feelings, desires and aspirations (obsessive craving, obsessive impulses) and behavior (compulsive behavior, obsessive-compulsive behavior – compulsions).
The patient defines obsessions by the fear that he might hit someone, someone to push someone to move, etc. In these obsessive ideas, it is not so much his own person (as in phobias), but about other people: something might happen to his family or has already happened, and when the patient is to blame (pathological guilt).
Obsessive impulses are often such content as an opportunity to do harm, and not just imagine how many others, such as something to make with your child and at the same time to fall out of windows with a knife, once he got into his hands, someone to hurt or even kill; utter indecent or profane words, want, think or do the forbidden. Thus, obsessive impulses are predominantly aggressive color. In normal times these impulses can be traced, for example, when you look at the depth – I could go throw, or hurt anyone, but these perceptions are unstable, immediately overcome by “healthy thoughts.” Not to hurt yourself or another not to hurt. However, patients do not “give in” to his impulses. Until appropriate action is not reached, but they experience it as a lack of freedom, aggressive impulses, which are so shrill develop, give rise to the appearance of the patient pronounced ethical sense of guilt and subsequent fears (fear of conscience). Compulsive behavior is expressed, for example, obsessive account: everything that happens before your eyes in greater or lesser number (train cars, telephone poles, matches), must be constantly recalculated. In the obsessive control of all must be checked – whether the light is off, open a gas valve, shut a door, properly cast and writing, etc. In the obsession with the order must be kept in a special manner with the clothes closet or desk, or everyday activities must be carried out in a particular sequence. Patient persistence is infinite purity washes his hands, other body parts, down to skin maceration and cannot do anything other than washing.
