OCD is one type of: an anxiety disorder. IF you have that it is very treatable. There are mental health professionals who specialize in the treatment of OCD. Although anti-depressants can play a role in treatment, please don't use them w/out good psychotherapy. OCD can manifest in health fears. Peace and good health.
