Doctor :   a thorough clinical examination and counseling is done.
Doctor :   Treatment of such thought disorders is possible.
User :   wat should i do now
Doctor :   Both form of treatment (complete cure of the problem or suppressing such thoughts ) can be achieved by regular counselling, thought and behaviour modification with medications.
