Did I really switch off the stove and did I close all the windows? These are thoughts that people with an obsessive compulsive disorder experience. An OCD manifests itself in obsessive thoughts or compulsive actions. These are recurring and perceived as tormenting or burdensome. Even if the person affected feels the thoughts or actions are partly unfounded, their suppression causes fear and strain.
Other forms of obsessive thoughts are for example fear or disgust for dirt and contamination which leads to excessive washing or cleaning.
The inclination to arrange objects according to complex patterns, excessive order in general or ritual behaviours such as counting or controls to prevent an accident are other shapes of obsessive compulsive disorder. At all of the clinics mentiones below, there are doctors who have vast experience with the treatment of obsessive compulsive disorder (ICD F42).
