What is OCD?

American Psychiatric Association said on their website: “Obsessive-compulsive disorder is an anxiety disorder in which time people have recurring, unwanted thoughts, ideas or sensations that make them feel driven to do something repetitively.

“The repetitive behaviours, such as hand washing, checking on things or cleaning, can significantly interfere with a person’s daily activities and social interactions.

“For people with OCD, thoughts are persistent and unwanted routines and behaviours are rigid and not doing them causes great distress.”
