There was a lady around 35 years of age good looking and mannered. Came to me one afternoon . Hastily siting on the chair arranging her belongings in specific manner and her first sentence was"Doctor, I don't enjoy my life.. "
She was a housewife and her husband was currently in financial mess. She wanted to help him but cannot. As her entire time was consumed in washing and cleaning activities. She was lacking self confidence and was avoiding attending social functions as she was having doubts about herself....
I started her treatment and counseled her about certain life style changes.. and after few follow up she came to my consulting room smile on her face and said "Now I have started attending functions and even applied for a job as her habit of excessive cleaning and washing has reduced by dramatic amount.".
This patient was having obsessive compulsive disorder.
