What Is "OCD?"
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is defined by Mayo Clinic as “a pattern of unreasonable thoughts and fears (obsessions) that lead you to do repetitive behaviors (compulsions).”
Obsessions are repetitive, unwanted, intrusive thoughts or urges that cause distress or anxiety. These obsessions lead to any number of compulsive behaviors – washing, counting, checking, or following a strict routine, to name just a few – that must be completed to cope with the obsession.
Obsessive-compulsion is recognized by it’s cyclical nature, where failure to complete the compulsion leads to anxiety, which triggers the obsession, which triggers the compulsive behavior, etc.
