Curious

I have a friend that will say a phrase and softly repeat it 1 more time . He does this every time he speaks, rather it is 1 word or a whole sentence . I was just wondering if there is a name for this disorder . Please help my friend.

Re: Curious

Hi, this is a symptom of a mental disorder called OCD or obsessive compulsive disorder. People who suffer from this disorder will go through certain rituals, like a broken record they repeat the same ritualistic behavior over and over because if they feel if they do not then bad things will happen. A common OCD symptom is excessive hand washing for fear of germs. OCD symptoms usually will get worse with time and without psychiatric help will get to the point where it consumes their whole life. With the right therapy and/or medication OCD sufferers may get back to normal behavior.You may want to suggest getting help to your friend as many OCD people live very tortured lives......
