Symptoms for obsessive compulsive disorder can be classified under two ranges. The first range is the classic symptoms which include counting, checking, hoarding, washing, etc. The second range is Pure OCD which are repeating mantras to yourself, rethinking thoughts trying to get different feelings or constantly analyzing a thought, looking for new evidence.
One of the most important things that you can do is realize that you cannot control the things you are trying to control. A lot of people with OCD feel that they need to control something or prevent something bad from happening.
The problem with this is that they put too much responsibility on themselves to prevent something bad from happening or as one of my clients put it, to be the head of security in a fools world.
What he meant by this is that he was trying to prevent people from being hurt by imaginary devices and so he would check real places for items that only existed in his mind because he had good intentions. This would definitely fall under the category of symptoms for obsessive compulsive disorder, the classic variety. Most likely caused by pure OCD first.
You see, most people with OCD end of having both Pure and classic OCD. One of the most…
Common types of OCD is actually pure OCD. Many people simply have unwanted thoughts that haunt them and they allow these thoughts to interfere with their lives because they feel that they have no control over them. I can tell you now that there is plenty that you can do about your thoughts.
There is also much to be done about your OCD if you have classic OCD as well. One thing you should know is that most people with obsessive compulsive disorder don’t actually have issues with washing their hands as a lot of the OCD books try to suggest, which is one of the symptoms for obsessive compulsive disorder.
Most importantly, the symptoms for obsessive compulsive disorder are usually…
Treated by therapists, doctors, etc. However, the people that end up on my sites do want to treat their OCD, but soon find out that you can actually become and stay OCD free for life.
It’s important to note that I never promise that it’s going to be easy, but it’s worth the work. It’s similar to someone going to college for four years so that they can get a high paying job later.
They do the work now, so that they don’t have to struggle for the rest of their lives financially. OCD is like that too, if you do the hard work now that I’ll teach you, you can spend the rest of your life OCD free. However, if you don’t do anything about it now, you’ll suffer with OCD for the rest of your life.
I want to see you get over your symptoms for obsessive compulsive disorder, but you must be willing to do the work now and understand that it’s better to suffer a little bit now to be mentally free for the rest of your life than the other way around.
