Symptoms of OCD
As stated on the NHS OCD page, an obsession is an unwanted and unpleasant thought, image or urge. It repeatedly enters your mind, causing feelings of anxiety, disgust or unease.
A compulsion is a repetitive behaviour or mental act that you feel you need to do to temporarily to relieve the unpleasant feelings brought on by the obsessive thought.
