Learn More About OCD

Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a common and chronic mental health condition where the sufferer experiences either obsessive thoughts, or compulsive behavior, or both.

This mental illness results in unwanted and uncontrollable sensations and thoughts, identified as obsessions, and repetitive, irrational actions and behaviors, identified as compulsions. Obsessive-compulsive disorder can occur in individuals of all ages and from different backgrounds. In most cases, people with this condition are aware of their illogical obsessions and compulsions, yet they are usually unable to prevent themselves from having them.

Symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder can interfere with all areas of life, like work, social activities and personal relationships. Obsessions are the repetitive thoughts and urges that cause anxiety, whereas compulsions are the repetitive activities that the person engages in, in response to the obsessive thoughts. Symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder are erratic, they come and go, but become worse if left untreated.

Although the exact cause of the obsessive-compulsive disorder is not yet known, it is believed that a combination of different factors, such as genetic, psychological, social, and physical factors, may contribute to the onset of this disorder. If left untreated obsessive-compulsive disorder can interfere with all the activities of your daily life. However, with effective therapy and medication, a person with this condition can relieve the symptoms significantly and live a normal, healthy life.
