OCD Daily war

ocd1 Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is described as an anxiety disorder. The condition has two main parts: obsessions and compulsions.
Obsessions
Obsessions are unwelcome thoughts, images, urges or doubts that repeatedly appear in your mind; for example, thinking that you have been contaminated by dirt and germs, or experiencing a sudden urge to hurt someone.
These obsessions are often frightening or seem so horrible that you can’t share them with others. The obsession interrupts your other thoughts and makes you feel very anxious.

Compulsions
Compulsions are repetitive activities that you feel you have to do. This could be something like repeatedly checking a door to make sure it is locked or repeating a specific phrase in your head to prevent harm coming to a loved one.
The aim of a compulsion is to try and deal with the distress caused by the obsessive thoughts and relieve the anxiety you are feeling. However, the process of repeating these compulsions is often distressing and any relief you feel is often short-lived.
Although many people experience minor obsessions (e.g. worrying about leaving the gas on, or if the door is locked) and compulsions (e.g. rituals, like avoiding the cracks in the pavement), these don’t significantly interfere with their daily lives, or are short-lived.
If you experience OCD, your obsessions and compulsions will cause you considerable fear and distress.OCD is also known to have a close association with depression, and some people find obsessions appear or get worse when they are depressed.
For those of you with OCD, you know that this disorder is not one to simply “get over.”  Sometimes you might even swear that you would do anything to be “normal.”
"Do not give up. It is a long and arduous journey with ups and downs and twists and turns. Some days will feel like you are on a sunny warm walk in the park. And maybe more times than not it will seem like you're walking through heavy rain with a cold biting wind in your face trying to push you backward. But you know it will be tough so be patient. Be resolute. Keep moving forward toward your goal. Eventually you will get there, but you must keep going."-Author and OCD advocate, Shannon Shy.
