For the past few days I am so happy that I even forget about my OCD. When I am happy OCD doesn’t control me. That is crazy isn’t it? Maybe OCD and depression have some kind of link. Scientists should try to find it. If they find that happiness is the key in overcoming OCD, then that would be a major development in the field of mental health.
I am a cricket lover so I tend to be a little superstitious. No surprises there because all sports lover are superstitious. Most of the time while watching matches my superstitions change into obsessions which I have to do (compulsions). If I refuse to do it (OCD things) then my mind would be totally plagued with the fear of losing the match.
So there is also a link between superstitions and obsessions. From these two small discoveries I infer that OCD is a dynamic disease. Environmental factors affect it in many ways.
