Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder and mental disorder that affects the brain and behavior of the person who suffers from it. OCD involves obsessions and compulsions.
The obsessions are negative or intrusive thoughts, images or impulses that repetitively occur and feel out of control. These thoughts are often accompanied by fear, worry and anxiety.
The compulsions are repetitive behaviors or thoughts are done to neutralize or make the obsessions go away.
Those who suffer from OCD also generally recognize that their obsessions and compulsions are irrational. They also can suffer very severely mentally, emotionally, financially and in their relationships.
In conventional modern medicine, there is no cure for OCD. Treatments include therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to manage this disorder and medication.
For myself, I suffered from negative, obsessive thoughts, fears, worries, and anxieties that caused me to count and touch things in the number of four or a multiple of four to temporary relieve me of my suffering. I also found that over time my heart closed to many people as I felt powerless, angry and stuck.
To be completely healed of OCD is beyond a dream come true. I cannot thank Master Sha, the Divine, the Tao and the Source enough for the gift of soul healing and divine soul healing. You can read more about my soul healing process in my book, How I Healed My Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.To learn more about OCD, I suggest you read the web sites of International Classification of Diseases (ICD), International OCD Foundation and Wikipedia.
