Priyank Chopra, bollywood actress  is suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. She is worried that working too much will have negative effect on her health. While Priyanka already has been warned by her parents and her friends and told her not to work hard too much.

OCD is the fourth most common mind disorder and is diagnosed nearly as often as asthma and diabetes mellitus.
Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is a disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts that produce anxiety, by repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing anxiety, or by combinations of such thoughts (obsessions) and behaviors (compulsions).

Priyanka says, “I have said this earlier it’s the same OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) at work. I’ve been warned by my parents (both doctors) and well-wishers not to let work take its toll on me. And, though I wish to pay heed to their advice, I can’t stop myself from getting excessively involved with the work I take on. Honestly, I drive myself to a point of no return when it comes to any part that I undertake in a film. I’m just so involved that it starts to hurt. And I don’t realise I’m bleeding till such time as I’m on a set because I don’t stop to look.’’

What is O.C.D?
