(Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)

SymptomS and Treatment

Obsessions are repeated thoughts, urges, or mental images that cause anxiety in an individual.


Some of the more common obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) symptoms include:

  • Fear of germs

  • The need to have things in perfect, symmetrical order

  • Taboo thoughts or other unwanted thoughts about things such as sex, religion, or harm

  • Aggressive thoughts toward yourself or toward others


Compulsions are the direct result of obsessions. When you suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder, your obsessive thoughts lead to repetitive behaviors (compulsions) you feel are necessary to perform. You perform these behaviors to reduce the anxiety produced from obsessive thoughts and to prevent something bad from happening. If you are coping with obsessive-compulsive disorder, you likely know that these compulsions only provide temporary relief and bring no pleasure.

Common symptoms surrounding compulsions include:

  • Counting

  • Checking

  • Washing/cleaning

  • Maintaining strict routines

  • Orderliness

  • Need for reassurance
