Obsessive-Compulsive Behaviors and Disorders: Symptoms, Treatment, and Support

OCD, “Obsessive Compulsive Disorder,” is debilitating. OCD sufferers often feel compulsions to do the same task, such as hand-washing, locking doors, etc., over and over again. OCD keeps the people who suffer from it from being productive and living comfortably. However, there is hope for OCD sufferers; this mental illness can be treated with professional help. The following article gives a comprehensive description of OCD and its effects:

“Obsessions are recurrent, persistent, unwanted ideas, thoughts, images or impulses that are experienced involuntarily, appear to be senseless, and feel out of control. They commonly intrude when you are trying to focus on thinking or doing other things. Obsessions are often accompanied by uncomfortable feelings, such as fear, disgust, doubt, or a sensation that things have to be done in a way that is “just so.”
