intimidating Reasons for NOT Seeing a Therapist "Obsessive-compulsive disorder is relatively common; however, its actual incidence has only recently become clear.

The neurotransmitter serotonin appears to have a central role in this disorder.

Males and females are affected equally, with onset usually occurring in late adolescence.

Symptoms include intrusive thoughts that lead the patient to perform repetitive rituals that interfere with daily living.

Although patients are typically distressed by these thoughts and rituals, they seldom volunteer their symptoms.

At one time considered rare, obsessive-compulsive disorder is now recognized as relatively common, exceeding the lifetime prevalence of more visible disorders such as schizophrenia.1,2"
