Everything You Should Know About OCD

OCD stands for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, an anxiety condition where people experience recurring, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) that drive them to perform repetitive actions.

OCD can result from factors like stress, parenting, or environment, yet its precise cause remains uncertain.

Common OCD symptoms include:
1. Fear of contamination
2. False health concerns
3. Fear of harm
4. Anxiety over rule-breaking
5. Concerns about sexual content
6. Persistent doubts

OCD can affect anyone. Recovery often involves therapy and medication, with a combined approach being more effective.

Support those with OCD if you know them.

Take care.

  1. I have watched programs about OCD, where people would go to such extremes that would refuse to leave their houses because of the fear of contamination. Terrible disease!

  2. I have a friend who has OCD and I noticed that she tends to wash her hand a lot (than the normal). She’d always find exuse to go to the WC to wash her hands. Sometimes it worries me because she gets restless. Thank you for this informative post.

  3. Having had OCD myself and struggled with other mental and personality issues, I became interested in Psychology (cognitive, behavioral) and all things related to the brain and why we do certain things in certain ways. I have learned that while OCD may not have a definite cause, a lot of other causes and factors can be said to cause OCD. It might benefit your audience more if you take some time to read about his this- as obsessive compulsive disorder is a huge topic and sparks lots of conversations and questions among people who struggle with it. So that you can write a more well researched, well informed beneficial post on this topic.

  4. I know people with OCD and see this case every day at work. This could be annoying sometimes how people react with OCD, but we should just understand them.

  5. I struggled with OCD tendencies in the past, where I tend to delete a lot of stuff online to make it look more clean and perfect…and other stuff. now I face this again after I started blogging where I overthink and am aware of feeling anxious…thank you for sharing and being open about this topic! It’s good to know no one is alone.

    love from Germany,

  6. I had this one time. Well, I didn’t know I did but people said I did. I was obsessed with cleaning and I hated it when anyone sat on my bed. I don’t even know how I relaxed. I just realized one day, it wasn’t there anymore.
