Many people have heard of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), but it is often misunderstood. The two main components of OCD are obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions are unwanted, intrusive thoughts, images, or urges that trigger intensely distressing feelings. Compulsions are behaviors an individual engages in to attempt to get rid of the obsessions and/or decrease his or her distress.
Examples of obsessions include:
Examples of compulsions include:
One of the most important aspects of OCD is that these things are unwanted and interfere with a person's daily life or values. It's more than just "liking things a particular way", it's more like "I have to do things a particular way before leaving the house and it makes me late for work" sort of thing. So please think twice before saying "oh man, I'm so OCD about that", as that is likely untrue and is dismissive of people who truly have a mental health issue.
