It’s too common that we check whether our house is locked or not before we go out. But if you get affected by repeated obsessions and compulsions, then it is called “OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE SYNDROME” (OCD). Obsessive compulsive syndrome is an anxiety disorder caused by uncontrollable thoughts and repetitive behaviours. It affects 1-2% of the population.

Most people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) fall into one of the following categories:

Checking: Repeatedly check things to prevent from harm or danger. for example door locked,stove turned off etc..

Hoarding:  Feeling unable to throw things away instead they are not using it.

Contamination : Afraid of Contamination. (Usually Hand Washing and cleaning)



Compulsive things:

Compulsive hand washing and cleaning more times.

Compulsive checking of things 2,3,4 times and so on.

Compulsion in keeping unnecessary things.

Compulsive reading more times

Obsessions thoughts:

Obsessive fear of being contaminated by germs

Obsessive fear of being harm

Obsessive fear of losing things you might need

Excessive focus on things which are lucky or unlucky.



Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent from Obsessive-compulsive disorder. But it can be treated if detected early.


Psychotherapy is an effective treatment for people who get affected from OCD.  ERP (Exposure and Response Prevention) is one of the categories in Psychotherapy. It treats the people exposing the OCD patient to a feared object or obsession and make them learn some healthy ways to handle their anxiety. It seems to be disliked by most of the people. But, really it takes effort to make people cope up with their compulsions and obsessions. Once people learn to handle their obsessions and compulsions, they can enjoy their life.

    One thing is that while you are searching for a education loan you may find that you’ll want a co-signer. There are many conditions where this is correct because you might discover that you do not employ a past credit standing so the loan company will require that you have someone cosign the borrowed funds for you. Great post.
