#12 Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
People with obsessive compulsive disorder experience recurring thoughts (the obsession) and repeated actions (the compulsions) to help control their thoughts. For example, a person may have recurring thoughts of harm, and in order to control the thought, may have to lock and unlock the door over and over again, until the thought it gone. This can debilitate some people, who have rituals that last hours.
