MY OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE LIFE
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder, characterized by intrusive, recurrent and persistent thoughts that produce restlessness, apprehension, fear or worry, and repetitive behaviors called compulsions, aimed at reducing associated anxiety.
The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) by the Association of Psychiatry of the United States (published in 2013) places OCD and related diseases in an independent chapter, therefore breaking with tradition to include it in the chapter on anxiety disorders, as the previous editions of the DSM did.
