Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
OCD is a combination of obsessive thoughts that are accompanied by compulsive behaviours, whether it is mental, e.g. repeating the same statement over and over again, or physical, e.g. hand-washing, straightening items and re-checking locked doors. Obsessive thinking and compulsive behaviour often become “rituals”, which can have a negative impact on your life. These behaviours come at the cost of enjoying your life. They make it difficult to be spontaneous and quickly become very tiring.
