OCD is so much more than arranging your pencils neatly or washing your hands a few times a day. It’s a medical condition which, if left untreated, will continue to get worse.
To get an official diagnosis, you’d need to speak with a medical professional. However, most OCD sufferers are aware of their condition prior to their diagnoses.
The symptoms of OCD include:
- Recurring intrusive thoughts
- Major recurring bouts of anxiety
- Repetitive compulsive behaviors.
While everyone suffers from these symptoms from time to time, it’s the intensity and frequency that makes OCD different. If you feel you’re suffering from these symptoms on a daily basis, and it interferes with your everyday life – there is a high probability you’re suffering from OCD.
