Brief Answer:
I think you are right

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Health care magic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

Although it is never possible to diagnose OCD without interviewing the person but the chain of thoughts described above largely favors your thinking pattern alike OCD. As you might be knowing in OCD we have unwanted thoughts witch we know that there is no truth.

First thing I feel you need to have proper engagement in one or another activity so there is little time left to think over small matters which are otherwise very significant.

Secondly there is need for psychiatric evaluation as soon as possible. This will give you the required peace of mind as OCD is treatable disorder.

I hope this helps you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.

Brief Answer:
Stress have effect almost all organs of body

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for follow up.

Stress can not kill per se but cause significant morbidity for the individual. Since stress originates in the brain, same organ controlling other body systems, excessive amount of stress leads to malfunctioning of any of them resulting in illness.

Regarding HIV I like to inform you that virus can not survive outside human body for long time and injury with sharp objects (of motorcycle) unlikely to spread HIV.

I hope this helps you.
Thanks again.
