Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
OCD is a condition which involves obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours. It is an
anxiety disorder characterised by intrusive thoughts, uneasiness, apprehension, fear or worry and repetitive behaviours aimed at reducing the associated anxiety.
People with OCD may recognise their obsessions and compulsions as irrational and may become further distressed by that realisation. Symptoms are often worse during times of stress.
