I belong to a few organizations and like to create my own designs to help spread the word. My nephew by marriage has this disorder and his mood swings and behavior go thru many of these expressions so i thought this was the best way to capture it.
I think alot of us experience a little OCD at times such as “did i lock that door?” “Did i turn off that stove?” except in their case they’ll check it 100 times before finally walking away. To me OCD is like a brain loop, or an old record stuck on skipping. If you get a chance please donate to this organization, and learn alittle more for yourself, I’m sure theirs someone you already know or suspect they have this is and are afraid to admit it or get some help.

What Is Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder?
Worries, doubts, superstitious beliefs are common in everyday life. However, when they become so excessive such as hours of hand washing or driving around and around the block to check that an accident didn’t occur then a diagnosis of OCD is made. In OCD, the brain gets stuck on a particular thought or urge and just can’t let go. People with OCD often say the symptoms feel like a case of mental hiccups that won’t go away. OCD is a medical brain disorder that causes problems in information processing. It is not your fault or the result of a “weak” or unstable personality.
Before the arrival of modern medications and cognitive behavior therapy, OCD was generally thought to be untreatable. Most people with OCD continued to suffer, despite years of ineffective psychotherapy. Today, luckily, treatment can help most people with OCD. Although OCD is usually completely curable only in some individuals, most people achieve meaningful and long-term symptom relief with comprehensive treatment.
