Understanding OCD: Obsessions and Compulsions

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is classified as an anxiety disorder and comprises two primary components: obsessions and compulsions.

Obsessions

These are persistent, unwanted thoughts, urges, doubts, 
or mental images that incessantly intrude into your consciousness.

These obsessions can take various forms, from fears of contamination by germs or an invisible virus to disturbing urges to harm someone.

These unwelcome thoughts can be incredibly distressing.

Compulsions

Compulsions are repetitive behaviors or mental acts that you feel compelled to perform in response to your obsessions.

These actions can range from repeatedly checking if a door is locked to reciting specific phrases in your mind to prevent a feared event.

Unfortunately, compulsions often provide only temporary relief and are accompanied by considerable distress.
