Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Psychiatrist in the Chicago Loop
Obsessive compulsive disorder, or OCD, is a psychological disorder that is characterized by the need to behave in fanatical ways by performing repetitive behaviors. Those who suffer from OCD often become increasingly distracted by their need to act in such habitual ways that it impedes on daily life functioning by disrupting social interactions, relationships, and occupational duties. Obsessive compulsive disorder may be caused by severe anxiety, chemical imbalances, or skewed beliefs or perceptions. Seeking help from a professional is vital to dealing with the underlying emotional causes of OCD and overcoming the need to behave obsessively and irrationally.
