OCD is a terrible affliction that involves individuals experiencing unhelpful thoughts and fears, these become behaviours known as compulsions.
Some individuals may suffer from only obsessions or only compulsions, they would still come under the OCD category.
This type of condition can become incredibly distressing as levels of anxiety become slaves to OCD which interests with everyday life, destroying confidence and self-esteem as well as ruining valuable relationships.
These drastic, unhelpful thoughts or urges can lead to ritualistic behaviour, sadly this becomes a vicious cycle of OCD.
