WHAT IS OCD?

OCD is represented by diverse symptoms inclusive of:

  • Obsessions- intrusive and recurrent thought’s, feeling’s and idea’s such as thoughts of contamination, unwanted sexual thoughts, religious obsessions, etc.
  • Compulsions- conscious, standard and recurrent behavior/s like counting, checking, etc.
  • A person may experience either obsessions or compulsions or even both. An individual with OCD recognizes the irrationality of his/her obsessions and views his/her compulsion as an unwanted behavior.

Signs of obsessions are as follows:

  • Excessive concern and disgust with dirt, germs, bodily wastes, etc.
  • Need to maintain order or symmetry.
  • Fearing that something terrible is going to happen.
  • Religious concerns or excessive praying.
