Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts that produce uneasiness, apprehension, fear or worry (obsessions), repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing the associated anxiety (compulsions), or a combination of such obsessions and compulsions. That is what it tells me about my disorder. It doesn't say anything about how I stay up every night until the clock reads 3:33:33 each night because that's the time I am supposed to slepe at. It says nothing about having to repeat things until they sound right. Of coruse it won't tell you that I check that i've locked my door 33 times each day because if it did it'd make you believe I was insane. But please remember I am not insane I am just anxiously worried about the simple things.
