How to overcome Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Harm OCD Compulsions

Harm OCD sufferers spend a great deal of time trying to (dis)prove their “closeted lunacy.” As a group, they rely on a set of identical tactics that are equally ineffective in treating OCD. These tactics fall under the umbrella term of compulsions. Compulsions consist of repetitive behaviors that are used to ward off anxiety. The OCD sufferer performs them under the naive assumption that they will provide long-term relief. In reality, they provide intermittent relief while sustaining the OCD in the long haul.

What is OCD?

Obsessive Compulsive disorder is an mental health disorder that involves two main components – obsessions and compulsions. Those that suffer from OCD spend excessive time performing rituals (mental or otherwise) to ward off unwanted thoughts or feelings. In return, they reinforce a negative behavioral pattern that interferes with their personal and professional lives.
