OCD

OCD involves abnormal worries in the form of obsessions or intrusive thoughts that cause distress and anxiety.”

As Reid Wilson remarks, the same thoughts, images, or impulses come again and again and are frightening, terrifying, and the person attempts to dismiss them are mostly unsuccessful. In the attempt to get relief from the intrusive thoughts and prevent the terrible, feared consequences from occurring, the person adopts certain behaviors or thoughts called compulsions, that become proper rituals.
