What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)?
A person boards a bus for going to his office but gets down at the next bus stop and goes home to check whether he has locked his house or not. After a number of checks and re-checks, he leaves for office half satisfied. This is a case of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

A person does nothing during the day but goes on opening and closing his door. He too is suffering from OCD. Other examples of OCD are: a compulsory need to wash hands again and again, a persistent need to press the clothes which are already pressed, an obsessive need to wash the utensils which are already washed, etc.

If an idea comes to one's mind and one is not able to get rid of it and goes on thinking about it, even then he is suffering from OCD. A mother does not hug her baby for the compulsive fear that by doing so, she would kill it. She is also suffering from OCD.

OCD wastes a person's time and his life become miserable. Actually, he is trying to control his actions and become perfect. If sometimes, when he dares to control others and see to it that they do perfect work, he can be an efficient administrator but the people subordinate to him will feel suffocated by his actions.

The need for him is to go to a psychiatrist to control his misery. Sometimes yoga done under a trained yoga teacher brings relief to OCD patient.
