Obsessive-compulsive disorder is characterized by obsessive thoughts and/or compulsive behaviors that affect daily life considerably. The obsessions are often recurrent, unwanted, and disturbing images or impulses that patients find hard to suppress. This leads to overwhelming doubt, anxiety, or distress. Compulsions, on the other hand, are ritualized and repetitive behaviors that people feel driven to perform so they can get relief from the discomfort caused by the obsessions. Most of the people suffering from OCD condition realize their compulsions and obsessions are irrational or excessive, but they often do not know how to control them. These behaviors are categorized as OCD when they take up a large portion of time, a minimum of an hour each day, may be more.
