About OCD

Affecting approximately 2.2 million American adults, OCD is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and repeatedly perform ritualistic behaviors and routines (compulsions) to try to ease their anxiety or distress. Although people with OCD generally know these obsessions and compulsions are irrational and excessive, they feel as if they have little or no control over them. Some people spend many hours a day performing complicated rituals to ward off persistent, unwelcome thoughts, feelings or images or to try to make them go away.
