Understanding OCD:The less popular one!

We all have our preferences when it comes to organization and cleanliness, but for some individuals, these tendencies can become overwhelming and debilitating. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. In this blog, we will explore what OCD is, its symptoms, and how it can impact the lives of those who experience it.


  1. Defining OCD: Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is a chronic mental health condition characterized by the presence of intrusive thoughts, images, or urges (obsessions) that lead to repetitive behaviors or mental acts (compulsions). These obsessions and compulsions can consume a significant amount of time and interfere with daily activities and relationships.

  2. The Symptoms: OCD manifests itself in various ways, and the severity can differ from person to person. Common obsessions include fears of contamination, a need for symmetry or exactness, unwanted thoughts of harm or violence, or a preoccupation with order and cleanliness. Compulsions often involve repetitive actions such as excessive handwashing, checking, counting, or arranging objects in a specific manner.
