Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety condition where individuals have recurring obsessive thoughts or compulsions that typically cause difficulties in daily functioning.
OCD is driven by the need to control an environment or prevent something (bad) from happening, by repeating certain behaviours such as under or over eating, over exercising, hand washing, checking things and turning things on and off.
Severe OCD can be debilitating, destroy relationships and have a devastating effect on the well being of the suffer and their loved ones.
OCD can be treated with the right level of help.
Untreated Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) can have a devastating effect on the life of the sufferer and his/her loved ones. The sufferer may find themselves unable to concentrate on anything other than their obsessions, may be too embarrassed to step out into public for fear of being watched or judged, often avoid social situations and can eventually be unable to work as a result of their condition.
Untreated OCD is also characterized by an increased rate of depressive episodes and severe OCD will get progressively worse over time with fewer and fewer effective treatments available.
