Looking for an Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Test? You have come to the right place. Here you will find a basic test that I´m sure will be of some help to you. At least it will take a little bit of the mystery out of your symptoms.
Remember, recognizing your symptoms are an important step on your road to recovery. There are many who successfully deal with OCD and you can too. Taking this OCD test will hopefully be the first step to getting your symptoms under control.
I have an anxiety disorder and I can assure you it´s not the end of the world. Please remember, though, that I am not a doctor, just a normal guy with anxiety. Only a doctor is qualified to give you a true diagnosis. This is only to give you a little help along the way...
* Do you have constant anxious thoughts or very repetitive actions?
* Does fear cause you to check door locks or car locks repeatedly?
* Are you obsessed with germs, and wash your hands over and over and over again?
* Do you spend long periods of time counting or touching things?
* Are you obsessed with order and symmetry?
* Are you plagued with thoughts of hurting someone you love?
* Do you feel these "rituals" are out of your control?
* Are these "rituals" very distressing to you, but yet you can't stop no matter how hard you try?
* When you don't carry out these rituals, does it cause you an enormous amount of anxiety?
* Are these rituals taking up at least one hour out of your day and interfering with your daily life?
If these symptoms describe you,
don´t be discouraged!
Many learn to slowly but surely get their symptoms under control to the point that they can live a normal life, and you can too!
By taking this obsessive compulsive disorder test you have taken the first step- you are willing to at least admit that you may have this disorder. That´s a big deal!! Also remember there are mild forms and more severe forms of OCD. So, you may not display ALL the symptoms shown above.
Sometimes obsessions can cause panic anxiety attacks and it can be devastating because it´s something you feel you have no control over.
But OCD is more common than you may realize and there are treatments and medicines out there to help you get it under control where it doesn´t interfere with your daily routine.
