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.
