After reading a post about Jackie Chan confirming that he has OCD and ADD my immediate thought was ‘it must be really difficult for hio when he’s filming all his movies’.
My second thought was that I don’t really know much about OCD ( Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder ) which made me want to read up a little and get some info on it (it’s always good to know these things when you have young children)
Anyway…I found this some info so thought I would share what i found on OCD.
What is OCD?
Obsessive–Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety-related condition that can have a huge impact on daily life. OCD sufferers experience frequent obsessional thoughts, often resulting in compulsions, impulses or urges.
This triggers stress and anxiety and the perception that, if these impulses are not acted upon and completed perfectly, something terrible will happen as a punishment.
What are the symptoms of OCD?
Behaviours linked to the condition vary from person to person, differing in levels of severity. Symptoms of OCD can be as mild as consistently double checking locks and appliances when leaving your home (one in 20 people) to the more obsessive, compulsive hand washing, a need to keep items symmetrical (one in eight) and hoarding of possessions.
