Obsessive Compulsion Disorder
To ease that anxiety, you will find yourself repeatedly washing your hands until they're sore and chapped. This may relieve or lessen the distress temporarily, but there is still that compelling feeling that will return pursuing you to perform the compulsive behaviors. Living with OCD and performing the compulsions may take up many hours of you day and interfere with normal everyday activities. People with OCD are usually aware that their compulsions are unrealistic and over the top, but they can't stop the urge.
OCD symptoms usually involve obsessions and compulsions, but it's also very important to understand that you can have obsessions and compulsions that don't even relate to OCD. Just because you like to have everything neat and proper does not mean that you have OCD. As I stated earlier, OCD only affects about 2.2 million people in the United States. Its also very important to know the signs and symptoms of OCD, because if you know someone who you might suspect could have OCD, you should confront them and ask them to see professional help. Life with OCD is a difficult and stressful, you would be doing that person a favor helping them. I chose OCD because I know someone with the disorder and I know what it looks like when they have to live with it everyday of their lives.
