What is obsessive-compulsive disorder?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder is the type of anxiety in which you have certain thoughts or ideas over and over, or do certain things over and over (rituals).

The thoughts may be unrelated to what you’re doing. They may be violent, or somehow distasteful or frightening to you. The rituals may include washing your hands because of a fear of getting an infection, constantly checking windows or doors because of a fear they may not be locked, or straightening objects because of a fear something bad might happen if they aren’t in just the right place.

Most people with obsessive-compulsive disorder know the rituals aren’t normal, but they can’t seem to stop themselves.
