Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Obsessive-compulsive disorder is an anxiety disorder that causes people to become trapped in cycles of thoughts and actions. The main symptom of OCD is an irrational fear that leads to a compulsive behavior. Fears generally revolve around dirt, germs, harming others, as well as other objects and emotions. Common compulsive behavior includes counting items, turning lights on and off, eating food in specific order, or repeating phrases or words over and over.
For some, the anxiety disorder can be disabling, taking away their ability to function in life. This is why treatment is vital for obsessive-compulsive disorder, even if the symptoms that appear are mild. Online therapy can help, but first here is some more information you should know about the symptoms of OCD. After learning more about this disorder, it is important to get help if needed.

Eating foods in a certain order, constant counting, and repeating words or phrases are other symptoms that may appear with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
