Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
and OC-Related Disorders
What is OCD? Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is generally characterized by having obsessions and compulsions. Sometimes it’s just one or the other. Obsessions are thoughts images, impulses, urges that come into your mind repeatedly against your will and usually cause marked distress. Compulsions are the behaviors that relieve this distress. Some examples of compulsions are engaging in avoidance, reassurance seeking, reviewing thoughts or situations, checking, washing, and cleaning. These behaviors and thoughts cause significant disturbance to daily life.
