There are various treatments including therapies and medications to cure the obsessive and compulsive symptoms of patients. Some are able to cope with their symptoms because of the process of the treatment. Their obsessions and compulsions are somehow relieved. Yet, cases happen where patients do not properly respond with their treatment. Cases also happen where there are negative effects on their condition depending on how they manage and respond their symptoms considering their treatment. There are certain reasons why patients find it hard to cope with their disorder. These reasons are different from one to the other depending on how severe their obsessions and compulsions are.

Research and studies including thorough observations and assessments from physicians and psychologists have pointed out specific reasons on why patients find it hard to manage their obsessions and compulsions.

Patients with OCD usually say that they do not know where to ask help from. Because of this, their symptoms get worse before they are not properly treated. Also, for this reason they do not have enough knowledge about their disorder, thus making them do things which cannot help their condition. Also, it has been the nature of OCD patients not to seek help from doctors until they see that their obsessions and compulsions are severe and worst. Because of this, immediate treatment cannot be effectively given that is why doctors may find it hard to cure their disorder and will take a longer period of time. Cases also happen that their condition may lead to excessive stress and depression because they have no outlet for their compulsions and obsessions.

There are also cases where patients live their lives in a limited manner because they are ashamed of their obsessions and compulsions especially their symptoms which greatly relate to sex, violence, hoarding and the fear of inflicting harm to others. One of the reasons also is because they are afraid of being rejected by others and receive negative impressions and feedbacks from their family members, friends and co-workers. They are also afraid that their disorders, especially their obsessions and compulsions, may be used against them like the possibility of being terminated from their job and being discriminated by others.

OCD patients who do not belong to the first class and middlemen will usually feel ashamed to consult and visit the doctor and are worried of the expenses they may incur especially with the treatment, so we need to understand them at all times.
