These and other experts in the field discuss causes and the actions people take to reduce their obsessions.
The OCD and Hoarding section of EverydayHealth.com covers topics ranging from “How Is OCD Different from Typical Anxiety?” to “Do Neat Freaks Have OCD?”. They discuss common myths about OCD, how to recognize signs of animal hoarding, and facts about common obsessions, the age at which OCD usually begins, and thoughts about how hoarding is portrayed on TV.
