OCD

Obsessive compulsive disorder- myths, causes and treatments, by Lynne Malcolm (ABC).  It’s not all about lining up the pens, or washing hands ten times, it’s about intrusive “stuck” thoughts.

‘Someone with OCD about cleaning could have a spotless bathroom. They clean it twice an hour, and yet the kitchen is stacked high with plates with mouldy food. Or someone could wash their hands 10 times an hour, and yet wear the same underpants for three weeks.’

I learned a lot from this article!
