For those that don't know, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is not just being really tidy or having to have things a certain way. It's about being plagued by disbursing unwanted thoughts that you can get no relief from unless you perform a compulsion.
Some people do physical compulsions like tidying up or straightening the objects on their desk. Some tap things a certain number of times or ask others to check that what they fear hasn't come true. Still, others do all of this quietly in their own mind, so you would never know they are replying everything they did that day to ensure that they are safe from their obsession.
Unfortunately, most people with OCD wait over 7 years to get treatment. Even though it is having a major effect on the quality of their life. If this was reduced, they could be taught ways dealing with this devastating condition much sooner. Providing them with relief and preventing their obsessive thought in getting such a foothold in their life. That is why it is one of the conditions that should be dealt with as soon as possible if you see the warning signs.
