User's Question

I am always in panic, that something bad will happen. If I find someone telling me something opposing my opinion, I feel this is going to continue and happen forever. If I have stomach problem one day, I feel this will last with me for lifetime now, and I panic. If I write one piece badly, I feel my writing skills are corrupt and will never get right. I am just panicking with everything. How can I calm myself? How can I be more composed?

Dear user. Your problem is obsession, obsessive compulsive personality disorder and related anxiety disorder. Do you have panic symptoms like racing heart? Restlessness, breathing difficulties etc ? Comprehensive treatment including continuous counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy and medication on requirement basis can cure you. As a basic step you may start physical exercises, outdoor games and breathing exercises. Take care
