Anxiety symptoms: Do you have unhealthy patterns of behaviour? It could be OCD

People who suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder feel compelled to perform repetitive behaviour to alleviate feelings of distress, or to appease their obsessive anxious thoughts. Do you let anxiety control your life?

Beyond Blue understand that people with OCD “often feel intense shame about their need to carry out these compulsions”.

However, the feeling of shame can “exacerbate the problem”, leading to secrecy and a delay in diagnosis and treatment.

There are five key areas where OCD most commonly reveals itself in compulsive behaviour; these include:

  1. Cleanliness/order
  2. Counting/hoarding
  3. Safety/checking
  4. Sexual issues
  5. Religious/moral issues
