Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) sufferers experience recurrent, unwanted, irrational thoughts (obsessions) while also engaging in repetitive, unwanted ritualistic behaviors (compulsions). Common obsessions revolve around worries about dirt or germs, or nagging doubts; examples of compulsions are repeated hand washing to ward of contamination from germs, and constant checking and rechecking to satisfy doubts.
