Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is classified as a form of anxiety disorder. It consists of aspects called obsessions and compulsions. Although often a stand-alone condition, OCD may occur simultaneously with generalised anxiety disorder, depression, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and panic disorder.
An obsession or obsessive behaviour can be initiated by a scary mental image, unwanted thought, doubt or worry that progresses to an intense feeling of anxiety. On the other hand, compulsions are repeated actions or behaviours that an individual uses to reduce or diminish the anxious feelings. There are many different examples of OCD type behaviour. For instance cleaning, repeated checking of things, or doing a specific action a set number of times.
