What is OCD?

Obsessions and compulsions are the primary characteristics of OCD. Although most people have both, for others it could appear like they only have one or the other.

Vinay is worried about being responsible for bad things that could happen. He worried about leaving the
stove on, which could cause a fire, hitting someone with his car, checking wallets and zips, performing excessive religious rituals to so that something bad will not happen to him and his family

He spent all day repeatedly checking every action to make sure he hadn‘t done something wrong or
dangerous. For example, Vinay would circle back in his car to check if had hit someone and rechecked
his locks over and over again at home to make sure the doors were locked. Vinay also avoided using his
oven for fear he might leave it on.
