Abstract: A new hypothesis is presented within the framework of evolutionary psychology that attempts to explain the origins of obsessive-compulsive disorder. It is suggested that obsessions and compulsions originate from the overactivity of a mental module that the majority of humans possess and has the function of generating risk scenarios without voluntary intervention. It is hypothesised that obsessional phenomena function as an off-line risk avoidance process, designed to lead to risk avoidance behaviour at a future time, thus distinguishing it from anxiety and related phenomena as

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) can be a debilitating disorder with the following two anxiety-related essential features
  • Obsessions : undesirable, recurrent, disturbing thoughts
  • Compulsions : repetitive or ritualized behaviors
People with OCD experience unwanted obsessions, which cause anxiety. Severe anxiety produces feelings of dread, worry, fright, and apprehension (see generalized anxiety disorder GAD). Certain behaviors are performed compulsively in an attempt to lessen this anxiety. Although they realize their obsessions are excessive and their behavior is unreasonable, they feel powerless to control either. In fact, their symptoms can overwhelm them and result in severe impairment and dysfunction, which can begin at an early age. Incidence and Prevalence The National Institute for Mental Health reports that about 3% of people in the United States have OCD. Typical age of onset for boys is 6 to 15, while for women it is often later, between 20 and 30. Risk factors like genetic predisposition and environmental stress contribute to OCD. Also, OCD is more common among people of higher education, IQ, and socioeconomic status. Men and women, however, are affected equally. Though its course is chronic and usually lasts a lifetime, it is treatable with medication, behavioral therapy, and, in extremely rare cases, brain surgery.

What is OCD?
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), one of the anxiety disorders, is a potentially disabling condition that can persist throughout a person's life. The individual who suffers from OCD becomes trapped in a pattern of repetitive thoughts and behaviors that are senseless and distressing but extremely difficult to overcome. OCD occurs in a spectrum from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school, or even in the home.
The case histories in this brochure are typical for those who suffer from obsessive-compulsive disordera disorder that can be effectively treated. However, the characters are not real. Home Public Mental Disorder Info Top
How Common Is OCD?
Although OCD symptoms typically begin during the teenage years or early adulthood, recent research shows that some children develop the illness at earlier ages, even during the preschool years. Studies indicate that at least one-third of cases of OCD in adults began in childhood. Suffering from OCD during early stages of a child's development can cause severe problems for the child. It is important that the child receive evaluation and treatment by a knowledgeable clinician to prevent the child from missing important opportunities because of this disorder.

What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder? Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a potentially disabling condition that can persist throughout a person's life. The individual who suffers from OCD becomes trapped in a pattern of repetitive thoughts and behaviors that are unproductive, distressing, and extremely difficult to overcome. OCD can severely disrupt a person's capacity to function at work, at school, or even at home. People with OCD usually have considerable insight into their own problems. Most of the time, they know that their obsessive thoughts are senseless or exaggerated and that their compulsive behaviors are not really necessary.
Most people with OCD struggle to banish their unwanted, obsessive thoughts and do everything they can to prevent themselves from engaging in compulsive behaviors. Many are able to keep their obsessive-compulsive symptoms under control during the hours when they are at work or attending school. But over the months or years, resistance may weaken, and when this happens, OCD may become so severe that time-consuming rituals take over the sufferers' lives, making it impossible for them to continue activities

    Kristoffers Historie


    Mailingliste for OCD ramte og pårørende
    ... OCD links
    Jeg vil skrive lidt om Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, som er en tilstand med tvangshandlinger og tvangstanker (OCD). Dette emne interesserer mig meget fordi jeg kender en ung mand, Kristoffer der har denne lidelse.
    At lide af OCD er en meget stor belastning for ens hverdag. Tvangstanker er ideer, tankebilleder eller indskydelser, der dukker op i bevidstheden igen og igen på en ensartet måde. De er næsten altid pinagtigt generende og uhyre svære at modarbejde. Tvangshandlinger og ritualer er tilbagevendende handlinger, der udføres efter bestemte mønstre, ofte for at undgå en eller anden frygtet begivenhed og ofte foranlediget af tvangstanker. Såvel tvangstanker som handlinger erkendes af patienten som overdrevne og meningsløse, men på grund af den samtidige angst og urofølelse er de færreste OCD-patienter i stand til at bryde den onde cirkel ved egen hjælp.
    Mange dagligdags ting er besværlig, at komme igennem, fordi det kræver mange ritualer at udfører disse dagligdags ting.
    Kristoffers historie:
    At Kristoffer er stoppet med sine behandlinger betyder ikke at Kristoffer er helbredt, det er meget normalt at man får tilbagefald, skal starte i behandling og skal medicineres. På det tidspunkt hvor jeg skriver dette har Kristoffer kun været ude af behandling i en måned, så det er svært at sige hvordan det har påvirket Kristoffer at undvære behandlingerne, endnu har det ikke været negativt.

Although you’ve never had a spontaneous erection for a man do you fear that eventually you will get one? Do you feel a tingly feeling in your privates when you see something, which would be considered erotic by a homosexual? Do you feel the need to constantly check your thoughts or actions to see whether you are gay? Are you unable to convince yourself that you are straight even though you can find plenty of proofs? Is this fear dominating your life and repressing your everyday activities? Do you freak out when you think of guys who were ‘normal’ or even married and suddenly turned gay?

    ObsessiveCompulsive Disorder (OCD), usually begins in adolescence or youngadulthood and is seen in as many as 1 in 200 children and adolescents.
    IN C HILDREN AND A DOLESCENTS No. 60 O bsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), usually begins in adolescence or young adulthood and is seen in as many as 1 in 200 children and adolescents. OCD is characterized by recurrent obsessions and/or compulsions that are intense enough to cause severe discomfort. Obsessions are recurrent and persistent thoughts, impulses, or images that are unwanted and cause marked anxiety or distress. Frequently, they are unrealistic or irrational. They are not simply excessive worries about real-life problems or preoccupations. Compulsions are repetitive behaviors or rituals (like hand washing, hoarding, keeping things in order, checking something over and over) or mental acts (like counting, repeating words silently, avoiding). In OCD, the obsessions or compulsions cause significant anxiety or distress, or they interfere with the child's normal routine, academic functioning, social activities, or relationships. The obsessive thoughts may vary with the age of the child and may change over time. A younger child with OCD may fear that harm will occur to himself or a family member, for example an intruder entering an unlocked door or window. The child may compulsively check all the doors and windows of his home after his parents are asleep in an attempt to relieve anxiety. The child may then fear that he may have accidentally unlocked a door or window while last checking and locking, and then must compulsively check again.
