Psychiatrist Prof. evaluates delusion as a concept within Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Dr. Nevzat Tarhan said that delusion can happen to anyone. Emphasizing that the important thing is to manage it, Tarhan made important warnings so that his anxiety does not turn into a disease.
"Not violating boundaries in human relations"
Prof. stated that confusing what is real with what is not is called delusion. Dr. Tarhan stated the following:
“Where does obsession occur in the working mechanism of our brain? When a wrong thought comes to our mind; When we come across a thought that is absurd, that we should not do, that does not fit our basic personality and values, it is a skill to say no to those malicious feelings within us in such situations. Setting limits for ourselves and our behavior and not harming others is a skill. It needs to be learned. Children don't know this. Just as there are boundaries with neighbors in an apartment building you live in, there are also boundaries in human relations. It is necessary not to violate boundaries in human relations. Like entering his house, backbiting him, lying to him, or doing harm to him. "A person is not responsible for having evil feelings, but he is responsible for taking action regarding them."
Emphasizing the importance of regulating emotions, Prof. Dr. Tarhan stated the following:
“Obsession disrupts the mental balance here. Some people have tics. Their speech is halting. There is stuttering. Whenever he moves his shoulders, he speaks in a booming voice. What does shoulder lift do? It inserts an impulse into the circuit in the brain and completes that circuit. Even in thoughts, when a person is doing the thoughts he has learned and something happens that disrupts him, the mind will immediately intervene and say don't do it. "He will make an analysis and decide on action as a result of the analysis."
Why is it important to manage delusion?
Prof. also noted that people can be influenced by negative emotions and fall under the influence of delusion. Dr. Nevzat Tarhan said, “Actually, life is a school. We will encounter both good things and bad things in this school. But we will not forget our main purpose. When we are born, it will be as if we came to a school, and when life ends, we will act with the thought that we will graduate from this school and move on to a better life. "When that delusion comes to someone who has such a purpose, it does not turn into delusions that are a disease." he said.
"When the focus of attention is changed, the person starts to think clearly after a while."
Prof. noted that in non-essential matters, the brain expands the pathways in that area. Dr. Tarhan said:
“The same thing happens with addiction. Similar expansions occur in the reward-punishment system of the brain in substance users. In this case, suggestion is no longer useful. In this case, psychiatric treatment is required. Obviously it is necessary to treat biological degradation. There is also information traffic in our brain. It happens in the form of a chemical signal flow. These people block a region with the information traffic in their brains. That place is blocked. If we change the focus of attention, after a while it gradually disperses on its own. So, in such situations, the person starts to think clearly after a while.”
People with a high sense of responsibility are prone to OCD
Prof. Dr. Nevzat Tarhan stated that some obsessions can also be beneficial and noted that perfectionist people can achieve great success if they act in accordance with their goals.
Prof. also stated that people with a high sense of responsibility are prone to OCD. Dr. Tarhan said, “Daily obsessions such as the obsession with washing hands are very easy to solve if they are in their initial state. “He can handle it on his own.” he said.
