O

bsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder that is characterized by recurrent, unwanted thoughts (obsessions), that produce a sense of dread or alarm. Persons then engage in repetitive behaviors (compulsions) in an attempt to rid themselves of the obsessive thoughts and calm the anxiety.

If you suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder, then the chances are you will relate to most of the following points:

Such as reading a book or following a conversation? When reading, for example, you might read the same sentence over and over and never actually take it in, because your obsessive thoughts are overwhelming you.

Although the patient realizes that their obsessions and compulsions are "unwanted, unreasonable and excessive," they cannot stop the thoughts, nor can they stop acting on them, because of the pure feeling of dread experienced until the compulsions are correctly performed. The problem is that the relief brought about by the compulsions is temporary, and the obsessions and anxiety always return. If you suffer from OCD you know what it's like to be trapped in a vicious cycle of:
obsessions - compulsions - relief- obsessions, etc.

When the brain is in this repetitive, hyperexcited mode of generating and ruminating intrusive thoughts, it is in a state of "brain lock."

If you answered yes to most of these then it’s safe to say that you may suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder. If you do suffer from OCD then you want to get help. OCD is a biological disorder of the brain, which will not just go away on its own.

Don’t suffer in silence and don’t try to do it alone. OCD is a hard illness to live with, and treatment options exist, so there is no need to suffer unnecessarily.
