OCD patients think that things they do is the right way and insist other to do things their way its a psycholigical problem and surgery is not required for this few drugs are helpful with counselling of the patient......

fluoxatine is a good medicine provided that correct doses. consult your doctor for correct doses or change of drug. Surgery is not required how ever correct doses and correct medicine is required if one is not working. Also keep in mind that OCD treatment usually takes many months to get treated.

This is a disorder where the patient repeatedly does the same job repeatedly. My friend's brother had same kind of problem. He used to check the door whether it is locked or not several times in the night. This became very severe and he was awake whole night to check the door. Later he was taken to pshychiatrist and he was started on some medications, now he feels better. Doctor told he need to take the treatment for lifelong

I read some time back about OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). It seems in this people have the habit of doing things again and again- like checking doors, washing hands and all. They keep on doing this many times and are never stop  something like that.

I also have similar kind of problem on long back. I easily come out of that OCD by insisting my mind by telling not to think about the completed action. So try this and u will definitely come out of this situation with in short period.

I think youre nuts. Is it not peculiar that checking doors now and then, 100 times washing the floor is something people do it intentionally

Hey recently these thoughts have been coming into my head and it all started with thinking how happy i am in my relationship with my fiance and how i have never felt so happy. In work there is a guy who i went with years ago and then these thoughts started coming into my head what if such or whatever were to happen and i started to freak out because i was thinking to myself what the hell am i thinking. Then my head started going through all the men in my past life and it is killing me. ITS Like my mind automatically thinks of them without me knowing and it depresses the hell out of me and it is damaging and hurting me soo much that i can barely concentrate on my happy times now because i feel so negative all the time? I know myself that i would never never act on my thoughts but i just want my brain to return to normality. What can i do? Please
