OCD consists of two components: obsessive thoughts and compulsive (or uncontrollable) actions. We imagine that compulsive actions must always consist of rituals that can be seen, such as constant hand-washing. However, individuals with OCD often engage in less visible compulsive behaviors—actions such as counting or obsessive thoughts, such as constantly mentally assessing your environment for safety, or obsessively worrying about sexual orientation or religion.
Any kind of compulsive behavior can be uncomfortable (or impossible) to live with. However, OCD is a manageable condition. Counseling can help you work through, manage, and, with persistence, overcome your OCD tendencies as well as develop life skills of awareness, resiliency, and emotional regulation.
Signs and Symptoms
- compulsive: cleaning, checking, replication, memorizing
- almost any behavior can be found at the extreme end of the spectrum and be classified as "compulsion"
