Obsessions and compulsions are hard to turn off.
The majority of individuals with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) grapple with both obsessions and compulsions. “Obsessions” refer to persistent, distressing thoughts, mental images, or impulses that continue to resurface. “Compulsions,” often termed “rituals,” are behaviors people believe they must engage in to alleviate anxiety or prevent undesirable outcomes.
Common obsessions encompass concerns about contracting an illness, harming others, forgetting tasks, or engaging in embarrassing or morally wrong actions. Common compulsions include excessive cleaning, checking, repeating actions, hoarding, and arranging objects in specific patterns.
Many individuals with OCD are aware that their fears are not entirely rational, and they recognize the senselessness of their compulsions. Nevertheless, they struggle to cease these behaviors. Research has shown that cognitive-behavioral therapy is an effective approach to help individuals manage and ultimately overcome obsessive-compulsive disorder.
