If you find yourself tormented by unwanted, disturbing thoughts or compelled to perform rigidly set actions to reduce your distress, you may be one of the millions of Americans who suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It may be as mild as doubting whether you turned off the iron before leaving the house, or it may be as severe and disabling as washing your hands for hours each day. But whatever its degree, OCD is distressing, uncomfortable, and can disrupt your life or destroy your most important relationships.

DO ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS SOUND FAMILIAR?

You tend to worry…and you can’t get the worrisome thoughts out of your mind
You leave the house, but go back again and again to check whether you locked the door…turned off the stove…left the iron on
You save years and years of old magazines and newspapers because someday you might need an article
You repeat certain numbers or words in your head to feel "good" or "safe"
You need to arrange objects – like the things on a shelf or in a drawer – in a certain way or in a special pattern
You won’t use a public bathroom because you might be contaminated
You get upset if other people touch your things
You have violent, bizarre, or frightening thoughts or fear you might hurt someone you love

IF SO, THEN YOU MIGHT BE SUFFERING FROM AN OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE DISORDER. FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN…STOP OBSESSING!
