  1. Yes, it is.

    The main danger is the conviction of a lifelong diagnosis. It can lead to two extremes: either complete self-justification (“I'm sick, what's the demand for me”), or painful self – eating (“I'm a fool with a certificate and no matter what I do, everything is bad, salvation is only in pills”).

    And, although the second option creates prerequisites for development, the person remains deeply unhappy. And from a medical point of view, this leads to a deepening of neurasthenia and other neuroses.

    Meanwhile, OCD is a diagnosis of “nothing”: from the series “you probably ate something”. Even though the definition is in Wikipedia equates it to obsessive-compulsive disorder, but in practice this requires clarification. The discrepancy between the terminology of different disciplines, as a rule, indicates that there is no connection between them. This means that they also talk about different views on the subject, which can be expressed in different depths of ideas. In most cases, the term OCD refers to any obsessive (in the everyday sense!)behavior. the disorder ranges from hyperexcitability to panic attacks. Accordingly, the real danger of OCD is determined by the severity of the condition and its assessment according to “classical” nosology.
