What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder ?
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a mental disorder having two major components – obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions refer to repetitive, distressing, uncontrollable thoughts running through the mind. Compulsions are the rituals, behaviours and activities performed repeatedly in order to get rid of these distressing thoughts (obsessions). The exact cause of obsessive compulsive disorder is still not known. However, it is thought to run in families. Persons with OCD are so absorbed in their thoughts and/or rituals that the condition interferes with their everyday life and prevents them from carrying out their normal responsibilities at home or at work.
Symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
A wide range of symptoms are associated with OCD. The major among the obsessions are fear of dirt, germs, contamination; need for order and symmetry; unwanted thoughts or images in the mind. The major compulsions are checking things repeatedly, washing hands again and again, bathing several times a day, constant counting, repeating certain words or phrases, arranging things in a particular way and not wanting that arrangement to be disturbed.
