OCD and depression
My cousin who is 30 seems to suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder. He has unexplained fears and at times keeps on repeating the same activity. He has also developed an affinity to odd numbers. For instance he counts the number of words in each line and makes sure that the count is odd, counts the number of tiles while walking. It seems he had such problems from childhood. But it seems he is able to control his behavior to an extent these days. Do we need to take him to a doctor ? Will he need to take medicines or will a counselling help? Will he go into depression if this condition is not treated ?
