OCD was once ranked by the World Health Organization in the top 10 of the most disabling illnesses by lost income and decreased quality of life. There is effective treatment for both children & adults for OCD which can involve CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). People who experience OCD can experience obsessive thoughts. These thoughts can get stuck due to the meaning someone can attach to a thought. Part of the process of therapy is to chip away and this meaning to prevent this thought from remaining stuck.
