We might find ourselves making fun of those who are obsessed about cleaning, arranging things in a particular order, and trying to do everything with perfection. Not many know that it is a kind of mental issue that can prove to be problematic in the long run. Yes, friends – we are referring to OCD or obsessive compulsive disorder.

OCD is a mental state wherein a person repetitively thinks about certain things or has an uncontrollable urge or feels compulsive to do things. This situation is not just bothersome for those who have it, but also for those who are around them.

In the long run, it does not just lead to severe anxiety, but can also create a rift in relationships.

Another thing is that one should not restrict OCD to just cleanliness, as there’s more to it. So, do you want to check if you are obsessive or not?
