OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE DISORDER (OCD)

This is another mental disorder that is an improperly used term in pop media as it is usual to have routines that make us better even though it would not distress us if we could not do them. OCD on the other hand is when these routines start to impact the sufferer’s life, they inhibit them from fully functioning daily. Thus, people with OCD can feel as though their impulses and behaviours are outside of their control and are somehow unnatural.
