The key features of this disorder include obsessions (persistent, often irrational, and seemingly uncontrollable thoughts) and compulsions (actions which are used to neutralize the obsessions). A good example of this would be an individual who has an uncontrollable desire to put things in their proper order. For instance, a fisherman who hangs his lures on a wall in sections according to their saltwater/freshwater use, size, shape, color, and lure brand. In order to feel better, this individual checks his wall daily to make sure that nothing has moved or is out of place since the last time he checked. For these behaviors to constitute OCD, it must be disruptive to everyday functioning (such as compulsive checking and adjusting of lures before leaving the house making you extremely late for all or most appointments, or inability to perform everyday functions like work or school because of the obsessions or compulsions).
