Obsessive compulsive disorder or OCD is a mental disorder where the patient suffers from constant nervous breakdowns and anxiety attracts. These anxiety attacks and nervous breakdowns arise from internal thoughts that cause the person to develop a mixture of emotions such as fear, anger, uneasiness, depression, redundant behavior and many more such violent behaviors. These emotions are directed towards reducing the anxiety to calm themselves down. The problem with having obsessive compulsive disorder is that in this condition the person becomes more prone to other mental disorders such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or Bipolar Syndrome or a Major Depression. The patients of Obsessive compulsive disorder will at least one in their lifetime experience acute depression. The chances of a person with Obsessive compulsive disorder developing depression are increased by their separation and distinction from normal people because of their mental illness. Another reason why this patient is prone to other mental disorders is because of serotonin changes in the brain. These serotonin changes cause the other mental disorders to easily develop because of the weakness of the brain to resist against the changes to stop the development of new mental disorders. The alternate mental disorders are avoided by uptake of SSRI’s that will successively inhibit the development of diseases because if inability of the brain to resist them. SSIR’s are also effective as anti-depressants and reduce depression. Further the presence of disturbing thought and their ability of the sufferer to forget these thought increases the co-morbidity of developing multiple mental disorders. Hence it is important for a patient with Obsessive compulsive disorder to make sure she does not let other mental disorders take root. This is only possible with a regular visit to a doctor or a shrink who can easily detect the early signs of development of new mental disorders.
