Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
The condition is distinguished by the manifestation of maladaptive thoughts and anxieties (obsessions), which in turn motivate the individual to engage in repetitive behaviors (compulsions). These compulsions and obsessions significantly disrupt daily functioning and induce considerable distress.
You feel compelled to engage in compulsive behaviors as a means of relieving tension. Despite one's efforts to disregard or eliminate bothersome thoughts or impulses, they persistently resurface. This motivates you to take ritualistic actions. The vicious cycle of OCD is as follows.

OCD frequently revolves around particular themes, such as an excessive dread of contracting pathogens. To allay contamination concerns, you may repeatedly cleanse your hands until they become tender and raw.

You may experience feelings of shame, embarrassment, and frustration if you have OCD. However, therapy can be efficacious.
The etiology of obsessive-compulsive disorder remains incompletely defined. Key theories consist of:

  • Biology. OCD could be caused by alterations in the natural constitution of the body or mental functions.
  • Genetic component. Although OCD may have a genetic component, the identification of specific markers remains elusive.
  • Process of learning. It is possible to acquire compulsive phobias and behaviors by observing family members or by gradually developing them.
