In brief: Not important

Whos fault it is or why you have OCD isnt as important as what to do about it.
Even if you could answer it- it wouldnt help you.We do know genetics and learning play roles.

In brief: Fault?

I am not sure that anyone is to blame per se, unless you are talking about heredity and your mother has OCD herself.
Ocd is a type of anxiety disordsr and the compulsions are tgere to help control that anxiety. It seems to be biologically based and psycholofically reinforced.
