OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER (OCD)

People who struggle with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) have strong, irrational thoughts that lead them to repetitive behaviors. When you struggle with OCD, you may or may not realize that your compulsions aren’t normal; you may even try to ignore them, which often leads to performing the compulsive act to relieve your stress. Let our Chicago based licensed therapists help you recognize your symptoms and address them in a positive way.

Symptoms

Generally, obsessions and compulsions come hand in hand. Here are some of the common symptoms:

Obsessions:

  • Need for complete order and/or symmetry
  • Fear of dirt or contamination
  • Unwanted thoughts
  • Aggressive thoughts about harming yourself or others

Compulsions:

  • Putting things in order
  • Washing and cleaning
  • Checking and demanding reassurance
  • Living by a strict routine
