OCD

What is OCD?

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, commonly known as OCD, is an anxiety disorder that puts the person into unreasonable and irrational thoughts, obsessions, and fears. These obsessions often lead to repetitive behavior and continuous nausea in patients for no particular reason. Usually, this type of disorder is centered around a single theme, such as fear of germs; it will force individuals to wash their hands compulsively and for a longer time, even until they are chapped and very sore. This unfortunate cycle is the ultimate characteristic of OCD. No matter how hard one tries to avoid, the compulsive thoughts keep coming back to them. The only OCD and Depression medication for intrusive thoughts are to fight back against them and to see an experienced OCD psychiatrist.

Symptoms

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is identified by obsessions. Having OCD means having an obsession and compulsion that is:

  • repeated,
  • persistent,
  • and unwanted.

These thoughts, images, and impulses that pop up into the head of an individual dealing with OCD are completely spontaneous and often make little to no sense at all. Controlling them is something impossible, and the only sense of relief is when you give in to them. OCD obsessions are not just a pet peeve or something you do habitually. This urge/pressure is forcing you to just do it.
