Possible: Ocd is an anxiety disorder that we use to think was rare but now we know it is fairly common effecting 2-4% of general population. Anxiety disorders are very common and effect about a third of the entire population at some point in our lives. Consult a professional who could evaluate your symptoms.

OCD: OCD is obsessive compulsive disorder, which is comprised of obsessions (repeating unwanted thoughts) and compulsions (ritualistic behaviors to help deal with those thoughts) such as washing hands repeatedly, constantly cleaning, checking locks, and other similar behaviors. Often the emotions behind OCD are based in fear and/or anger that is unresolved and even unverbalized.
