What are the manifestations of behavioral obsessive-compulsive disorder? How to alleviate OCD? Obsessive-compulsive disorder is one of anxiety disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder is divided into obsessive-compulsive concept and obsessive-compulsive behavior. What are the symptoms of OCD? In fact, behavioral obsessive-compulsive disorder is not far from our life. Some people even don't know that they are suffering from behavioral obsessive-compulsive disorder. And 'doing things repeatedly' and 'cleanliness Mania' are typical symptoms of behavioral obsessive-compulsive disorder.
1. Continuous forced counting.
Some patients with behavioral obsessive-compulsive disorder will have compulsive memory of telephone numbers, car license plate numbers, house numbers, banknote numbers and numbers on bill documents. One patient had this situation. He was particularly sensitive to the number of 5 digits and the last number of 7, and had the behavior of forced memory. Moreover, in order to remember, he repeatedly copied the numbers into dozens of notebooks.
2. Constantly force yourself to clean.
This situation is generally called 'cleanliness Mania'. That is, they constantly force themselves to wash their hands, clothes, daily necessities and bedding. Clinically, this compulsive cleansing behavior is the most typical and most distinctive manifestation of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
3. Mandatory inspection of items
Some patients with behavioral obsessive-compulsive disorder will repeatedly check whether the doors and windows, gas, electric lights, TV dramas, air conditioners, etc. are turned off. In addition, they will also confirm the daily letters, homework, documents and other materials for many times to see if they are wrong. These are typical compulsive inspection behaviors.
4. A ritual act of compulsion towards oneself
Patients with behavioral obsessive-compulsive disorder for a long time will often have some compulsive ritual actions for themselves. They will stylize and model their actions, and then form a special ritual with sequence. For example, when you encounter tables and chairs, you must detour from the left. You must go in 5 and back 3 during walking, etc. How can behavioral obsessive-compulsive disorder alleviate itself?
For those with compulsive behavior, psychologists offer several ways to reduce their symptoms:
1. Psychological cues. For example, I suspect that the door is not locked. After locking the door for the first time, I stood next to the car and repeatedly warned myself: 'I have locked the door. Now I turn around and leave. It's okay!' Repeat it several times and stick to it.
2. Note reminder. Put a note in a prominent position on your desk that says, 'I've done great! Good! " Remind yourself not to pursue perfection too much.
3. Self statistics. Make a statistical table to see what aspects of compulsive behavior you will repeat at the end of the day, and record the number of repetitions. And set goals for yourself to gradually reduce the number of compulsions.
The above three methods must be implemented comprehensively for people with mild symptoms, and the effect will be better.
