I would like to bring out all my personal experiences in this Blog. I am not a Doctor. If you have any issues or symptoms that I described here, I am not claiming that I am providing the correct strategy to resolve your issue. The issue may be or may not be always belong to anxiety. I strongly recommend you meet relevant Doctor when ever required.
I personally suffered from hyper anxiety through out my life so far and the main idea is to create awareness in the mankind about the symptoms I had and the techniques I have been using to come out of obsessions. This blog is not a medical or highly professional rather it describes the incidents happened that based on my anxiety (mainly OCD + may be others) I believe.
I express my feelings, understandings and beliefs here. I am not claiming these are accurate. The idea is to get some understanding of what is going on and meet the concerned Psychiatrist to get proper medication/therapy if one decided that is required.
First, OCD symptoms are present if one has chemical imbalance in his/her brain due to which one gets lot of obsessions. This has genetic link. At an average 1 in 40 people has the primitive form of OCD. If this is not severe, it can be manageable. Few people have severe OCD symptoms which require either medication or Therapy or both.
Are you finding too much interest or too much hate in some activities and you are getting the related thoughts again and again with out controlling? Then this might be a point of suspect..If you have too much interest on some activities like learning a subject and you are trying to by-heart the content with out putting good effort to understand this can be treated as a point of concern meaning this may not be causing distress for you but we need to check if you have lot of distress with the repeated thoughts that you hate in your brain. It is important to understand if you are understanding the concepts or just mugging up. Most of the times if you obsess to mug up and reproduce the content as exactly as it is rather than understanding and explain in your own way then this behavior needs to be examined properly by your psychiatrist.
