OCD and troubles
Regarded as main components of the much bigger ailment, i.e. the obsessive-compulsive disorder, are both obsessive thinking and anxiety, respectively. The disorder in question is regarded as a type of mental disorder, which is primarily and predominantly characterized by disturbing thoughts that result in onset of anxiety. Furthermore, all the previously mentioned is quite often accompanied by recurrent behavior reducing the overall anxiety, or by a mixture of various obsessions and compulsions – thoughts and behavioral patterns that emerge to surface in order for the person to be able to face the anxiety itself. Though people often tend to be characterized by some of the afore pointed out traits, these tend to consume one rarely. In those people who suffer from OTD (or obsessive thinking disorder), however, things are quite different and much more serious; in some cases, quite severe. The main difficulty lies in the fact that such people get overwhelmed by the factors of the disorders all too easily and are unfortunately not able to deal with them in a satisfactory and desirable manner. Also, it is considered that the troubling thoughts are exhibited in the form of certain patterns that can be noticed relatively easily. They include three different ones:Improper aggressive thoughtsInappropriate sexual thoughtsBlasphemous religious thoughts
The first group includes such thoughts as hurting other people present in the person’s immediate surroundings, or hurting oneself. Thus, it comes as no surprise that the sort of behavior, accompanied by such thoughts as described above, gives way to serious anxiety. Thoughts sometimes also include the desire to hurt a person who is close to the individual suffering from OCD. At certain times, such thoughts even find their way into the mind of people who do not suffer from the disorder in question, with one crucial difference – they are able to deal with them so as not to affect their life radically as it is the case with people suffering from OCD. The second group of thoughts is represented by such as sexual rendezvous thoughts of any sort and with any person that the individual in question knows. Once they start treating those thoughts as real, the anxiety kicks in and in a lot of cases, depression as well. Blasphemy-related thoughts are regarded as, perhaps, the least serious ones and they include evil thoughts in the course of one’s prayer or meditation. The most prominent treatment methods that provide satisfactory results include psychotherapy and obsessive thinking medications.
