In brief: 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.
