Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people experience obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions are unwanted thoughts which recur and are difficult to stop. Compulsions are rituals which are carried out repetitively in order to try and relieve the thoughts and stop them recurring. Some symptoms of OCD include difficulty throwing things away, persistent, unwelcome thoughts or images, an obsession with germs or dirt, and a need to check or do things repeatedly. Treatment for OCD includes counseling, medication, stress management techniques, meditation, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
