Child OCD checklist

I your child at risk of OCD? Use the following checklist to find out if your child is at risk of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

  • Does your child have great difficulty discarding things even when they have no pratical value?
  • Does performing a certain ritual feel like an urgent necessity of life to your child?
  • Does your child repeatedly perform certain routine to prevent bad things from happening?
  • Do recurrent intrusive thoughts cause your child discomfort or anxiety?
  • Does your child do things over and over (such as get up and down from chair, count, tap)?
  • Does an exterme need for order and cleanliness force your child to tidy things/ bathe/ shower/ wash his or her hand excessively?

Some of the repetitive things that children with OCD do include:

  • Tapping or counting repeatedly
  • Worrying about germs from other people
  • Checking things mant times (such as locks on doors)
  • Repeatedly washing their hands

If your child loses more than an hour a day to any of the above and if the need for such repitive behavior causes marked distress or significantly interferes with normal routines, relationships or social functioning, you may consult your family doctor.

It has to have lots famous people given, which happen, OCD and some from them unfortunately died. These famous people are not fair actors and actress in addition, author, composer, poet and artist. With their whole fame and wealth they did not become an exception the obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Here some are some lists of famous people that have Obsessive-Compulsive disorder.

  • Howie Mandel
  • Leonardo DiCaprio
  • Dr. Samuel Johnson
  • Donald Trump
  • Cameron Diaz
  • Jim Eisenreich
  • Albert Einstein
  • Ian Puleston-Davies
  • David Beckham
  • Rose McGowan
  • Dan Ackroyd
  • Aaron Bagnola
  • Fred Durst
  • David Beckham
  • Tim Howard
  • Charlie Sheen
  • Howard Hughes
  • Joey Ramone
  • Marc Summers
  • Michael Jackson

The obsessions are persistent, intrusive, and cause with the person much distress and of faintness; constraints, therefore, are carried out in order to reduce these impatient, guilty or ashamed feelings. The compulsive actions usually have as consequence a direction of provisional relief-until so that the ritual is concluded, naturally, and the obsessing thoughts still start in another malicious cycle of concern.

Interesting list of those who have OCD. I knew about Howie; he is open about it. It does not surprise me that Michael Jackson made the list.

Sometimes, we tend to ignore the symptoms simply because we do not know the symptoms at all.. thanx for posting this.

Good information. That "intrusive" quality seems to be the marker for differentiating between any number of behaviors in both adults and children that may be slightly problematic vs. clinical levels of anxiety, depression or neurosis.
