OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER
Obsessive-compulsive disorder is an anxiety disorder characterized by recurrent and disturbing thoughts or repetitive, ritualized behaviors that the person feels driven to perform. Common types of obsessions include fear of contamination (e.g., fear of dirt, germs or illness) and the need for symmetry or exactness. Common compulsions include excessive ritualized cleaning; checking, ordering and arranging rituals; repeating routine activities and hoarding. Growing up in a physically or sexually abusive environment, brain structure and genetics are known risk factors for OCD
If you, a family member or a friend have been diagnosed with OCD, or if you exhibit its symptoms or view the symptoms in a loved one, it is very important that you seek medical treatment.
