Im also making this topic because i have read that many on this forum have it.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, OCD, is an anxiety disorder and is characterized by recurrent, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and/or repetitive behaviors (compulsions). Repetitive behaviors such as handwashing, counting, checking, or cleaning are often performed with the hope of preventing obsessive thoughts or making them go away. Performing these so-called "rituals," however, provides only temporary relief, and not performing them markedly increases anxiety.
People with OCD may be plagued by persistent, unwelcome thoughts or images, or by the urgent need to engage in certain rituals. They may be obsessed with germs or dirt, and wash their hands over and over. They may be filled with doubt and feel the need to check things repeatedly.
Kinds of OCD attitudes:
-Washers are afraid of contamination. They usually have cleaning or hand-washing compulsions.
-Checkers repeatedly check things (oven turned off, door locked, etc.) that they associate with harm or danger.
-Doubters and sinners are afraid that if everything isn’t perfect or done just right something terrible will happen or they will be punished.
-Counters and arrangers are obsessed with order and symmetry. They may have superstitions about certain numbers, colors, or arrangements.
-Hoarders fear that something bad will happen if they throw anything away. They compulsively hoard things that they don’t need or use.
