Sufferers of OCD typically return to the house seven times to check they've turned off the stove. OCD starts with an obsession ('I am contaminated', 'I am losing control') and leads to a compulsion such as checking, hoarding or counting. Treatment was psychotherapy until they realised the talking was compulsive but the client was no better. Drugs are now the treatment of choice. Many sufferers avoid treatment because they (and everyone else) think they're normal: they check their in-box every 30 seconds, go to bed clutching their mobile and can't enter a room without turning on CNN. Here the obsession is not 'I am contaminated' but 'I must be in touch'.
