What Is OCD?

OCD is a mental health disorder with intrusive and persistent thoughts called obsessions. There are 4 types of OCD; Contamination and cleaning, doubt and double-checking, symmetry and ordering, and intrusive thoughts. These obsessions lead to compulsions, which are repetitive ritualistic behaviors. Obsessions can cause significant anxiety and distress for individuals with OCD. They feel compelled to perform certain actions or follow specific routines to attempt to alleviate their distress. Unfortunately, OCD can interfere with daily functioning and quality of life when it is untreated. 

Is OCD Neurodivdergent?

OCD is not typically considered neurodivergent. Neurodivergence refers to individuals whose neurological development and functioning diverge from societal norms, such as those with autism spectrum disorders or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, it is important to note there may be an overlap between OCD and some aspects of neurodiversity. 

Understanding the Cycle of OCD

The cycle of OCD involves a pattern of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It typically starts with obsessions – the distressing and intrusive thoughts or mental images that repeatedly enter the person’s mind. Obsessions often focus on specific themes, such as doubts about safety, germs, cleanliness, symmetry, and orderliness.

In order to deal with obsessions, individuals will engage in their compulsions. Compulsions can involve mental acts or processes or repetitive behaviors that individuals feel they must perform or follow to alleviate anxiety from the obsessions. Common compulsions include:

  • Excessive handwashing to remove germs.
  • Checking rituals like verifying doors are locked.
  • Counting or organizing things in a specific way, such as loading the dishwasher in a particular manner. 
  • Cleaning the entire room when only a small amount of dirt or dust is found.

Performing compulsions brings temporary relief as it lowers anxiety levels. However, people with OCD find they are on a constant cycle moving from obsessions and compulsions, as it is only a matter of time before their obsessions return. Depending on the severity of OCD, it can significantly impact daily activities and cause extreme distress.
