Learn all things OCD with the OCD Whisperer Podcast.
Today we are talking about Compulsions!
Themes of different compulsive behaviors:
- Compulsive crying (other OCD influenced emotions)
- Self reassurance (sneaking them in sometimes)
- Magical compulsions
- Perfectionistic compulsions
- Touching/ tapping
- Mental compulsions (there is an episode just on this)
- Protective compulsions
- Body focused
- Self-mutilating (cutting, burning)
- Hair pulling/ skin picking (this may or may not be due to OCD, it may be due to trichotillomania mean hair pulling or excoriation-means skin picking)
