Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) means having constant, intrusive fears (obsessions) that cause you extreme anxiety. Examples include repeated, relentless thoughts about germs or constant worry that you left the door unlocked.
Certain behaviors (compulsions) help relieve the anxiety. You might wash your hands over and over or repeatedly check the lock. These compulsions can take hours out of your day and cause major problems in your life. Fortunately, treatment—typically a combination of medication and therapy—can help relieve these symptoms.
