35 People With OCD About Cleanliness

OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - According to the most recent, large-scale community study of mental health in adults across the United States: - 1.2 % of the adults met full criteria for OCD in the 12 months prior to the study, and - 2.3% met the criteria for a diagnosis of OCD at some point in their lives – that’s over 5 million Americans, or approximately 1 in 40 adults.People with OCD generally: Have repeated thoughts or images about many different things, such as fear of germs, dirt, or intruders; acts of violence; hurting loved ones; sexual acts; conflicts with religious beliefs; or being overly tidy. Do the same rituals over and over such as washing hands, locking and unlocking doors, counting, keeping unneeded items, or repeating the same steps again and again. Can't control the unwanted thoughts and behaviors Don't get pleasure when performing the behaviors or rituals, but get brief relief from the anxiety the thoughts cause Spend at least 1 hour a day on the thoughts and rituals, which cause distress and get in the way of daily life.

 Fortunately, effective treatment is available today, and people with OCD can get relief.  That’s good news not only for millions of people with OCD, but also for the millions of others whose lives are affected by OCD when a family member, spouse, friend or student has the disorder. The first and most important step in getting appropriate treatment for yourself or someone else is becoming knowledgeable about OCD.  Therefore, it’s important to learn to recognize the behaviors associated with OCD.
