Obsessive Compulsive Disorders

One of the most well-known varieties of anxiety disorder is called Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. People with this condition will find themselves with upsetting compulsive thoughts and repetitive rituals to ease their anxiety. Common examples include frequent hand washing, a fixation with a certain person or situation, or in terms of personality styles, a person who gets something in their head and can’t “let it go”. These obsessions and compulsions can be very time consuming and leave little time for normal day-to-day activities.
