O.C.D a Compulsive Disorder
By Sophie Garrison and Keisha Aikey
Some people think that this may be the cause of O.C.D:
A combination of either neurobiological, genetic, behavioural, cognitive or environmental factors that trigger the disorder.
Abnormalities, or an imbalance in the neurotransmitter, or brain chemical, serotonin, could also be to blame.
These are not all of the reason's of what people or scientists think could be the cause of O.C.D.There are multiple reason's to what people or scientists think could be the cause of O.C.D.
Types Of OCD
Traditionally it has been thought that there are 3 main categories of O.C.D, However, typically a person’s O.C.D. will fall into one of the following four areas
- Contamination/Mental Contamination
- Ruminations / Intrusive Thoughts
This list categories are the most common forms of OCD and some of the fears associated with them. It is by no means an exhaustive list and there will always be forms of OCD that do not feature here, and obsessions or compulsions that are not listed either. However this does not mean it is definitely not OCD. Remember - if you are experiencing distressing and unwanted obsessions and compulsions, that impact significantly on your everyday functioning,this could represent a principal component in the clinical diagnosis of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
Some other types of OCD are
- Getting scared of something for no reason.
- Organization, on certain things.
- everything needing to be symmetrical
- AND many many many many many MANY more.
