TAKE THE OCD TEST:

1. Do you have disturbing thoughts that just seem to "pop into your head" that you feel you have no control over? These thoughts could be about harm to yourself or others, health, cleanliness, safety, sexuality, violence, religion or morality, guilt, over-responsibility, things being out of order, appearance or body image, nonsense thoughts or unanswerable philosophical questions.

2. Do the thoughts cause an exaggerated anxiety, fear, guilt, panic, or discomfort that, at times, seems irrational even to you? (Young children with OCD might not believe their thoughts are irrational.)

3. Do you feel an irrisistable urge to "fight off" the disturbing thoughts by a repetitive behavior, or by thinking a counteracting thought, or seeking others' reassurance, or by trying to resolve a complex question in your mind? Does this urge seem almost against your will? Keep in mind that compulsions are often not physical behaviors; they can also be purely mental attempts to "talk yourself out of the worry."

4. Does your attempt to "fight off" the thought bring no relief or temporary relief at best? Do you do it anyway because you feel you "just can't stop?"

5. Do your worries and behaviors cause you more than ordinary stress, delay you, or bother others (family, friends, bosses)?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it could be OCD. OCD is a common condition, shared by millions of people. The good news is that there is help. OCD is very treatable, and might not require medication. There is plenty of reason to be hopeful of a normal happy life with the RIGHT treatment (click "Treating OCD" link on left for more information).
