OCD: a glorified illness.

OCD is perhaps the commonest psychiatric illness. However, it is often detected late. A common reason is the fact that, people think of those symptoms as "perfectionism", "cleanliness" or attention to detail. In initial phase, it causes a surprising acceptance to the symptoms. Symptoms sometimes are even celebrated!


Slowly, this becomes a behavioural trap for everything. What was perceived as a habit, slowly starts extending its tentacles putting everything in its claws. This causes significant distress to patients and famliy. It often causes significant loss in terms of money, or even natural resources, as a lot of hand washing leads to significant waste of water.

Often, clients ask: "Doctor, is OCD curable?" or "Doctor, will I get freed from this illness" To answer both questions:
