In brief: Neurotic??

Neorosis is an antique term that is no longer commonly used in the mental health field.
It was eliminated in the dsm and was used to explain disorders that a physiological basis could be identified. It generally had a negative and sel-imposed implication. The dsm replaced neirosis with anxiety disorder, which OCD is a type of.
