I am going to keep this post short and crisp. OCD stands for Obsessive-compulsive disorder which is an anxiety disorder in which time people have recurring, unwanted thoughts, ideas or sensations (obsessions) that make them feel driven to do something repetitively.
OCD can happen to a person due to various reasons like stress, parenting style, environmental factor but till date, the exact or firm reason stays unknown.
Symptoms of OCD
- Fear of Contamination
- A false fear of illness or death
- Fear that someone is trying to harm them
- Fear of violation of rules
- Fear related to sexual content
- Unwanted Doubts
OCD can happen to anyone. For recovering you can go for therapy and medication. The blending of both will be much effective.
If you know anyone who has OCD try and help them.
Short and sweet! Thanks for the concise info on OCD.
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!

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.

It is terrible that we haven’t found a cause for OCD. It can be detrimental on a person’s live.

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.
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.
Thank you for sharing. Very straight to the point but you are absolutely correct ! Thank you for shedding some light and info on this condition.

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.
