If you answered c, good job! The other options aren’t real and tbh are offensive to people who really have OCD. Moving on: What are obsessions?
Unwanted thoughts, images, or urges that may be extreme or disturbing. The obsessions are accompanied by uncomfortable feelings such as fear, disgust, doubt, or a feeling that things have to be “just right.” These obsessions occur over and over again and feel outside of the person’s control.
I don’t know.
If you answered a, congratulations!!! What are compulsions?
Excessive, repetitive behaviors or “mental acts” that a person uses to try to neutralize or make their obsessions or distress go away. People with OCD usually recognize that using compulsions is only a temporary solution, but without any other way to cope, they rely on compulsions as a brief escape.
Dunno
If you answered a, good job! If you answered b, it’s time to rethink things. People with OCD have obsessions and compulsions. What does this look like?

Constant hand washing

Excessive checking of things like locks

Counting, tapping, or repeating things
If you answered a, you’re correct. Constant hand washing is an example of a compulsion. But so are the other answers. That’s because cleanliness OCD is just one example of OCD, despite what we might see on TV. But let’s go back to the beginning: What are the chances that you actually have OCD?
About 1 in 500
About 1 in 100
About 1 in 200
About 1 in a million
If you answered b, you’re correct. Approximately 1 in 100 adults have OCD. That means between 2 and 3 million adults in the U.S. have OCD. That’s about the population of:
San Diego
Boston
New York City
Houston
Houston is right. It’s a lot of people.

Wow. Am I one of them?
Let’s see. Do you have unwanted thoughts that feel out of your control, and excessive, repetitive behaviors that you use to make those thoughts go away?
Yes
No
Maybe
OK, here’s the thing though: A quiz can’t tell you if you have OCD. Only an expert can. You know, like a doctor. Or a licensed therapist.
Oh
