See a psychiatrist: Anxiety is a common symptom in OCD. To address this, you need to see a qualified psychiatrist who can treat the underlying condition. Anxiety is also common in modern life even for those not struggling with mental illness, but I would suggest that once the underlying condition is adequately treated, the anxiety will likely improve and then you can work with additional counseling and medications
