OCD ( Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) leads to repeated unwanted & distressing thoughts ( obsessions) & you need to do compensatory actions to neutralise those thoughts, else you suffer severe anxiety. You need not suffer as good treatment in form of medication & psychotherapy ( counselling) is available. If untreated it severely affects the quality of life & may lead to depression. Please visit a psychiatrist who will suggest appropriate treatment after evaluation.

OCD is a condition that can cause serious impairment in one's life, affecting both personal and occupational functioning. I can understand you must be undergoing a lot of distress due to these symptoms. At times certain depressive features might also co-occur with OCD. Management is a combination of both pharmacotherapy by a Psychiatrist and psychotherapy by a Clinical Psychologist. It is recommended that you should undergo CBT ( Cognitive Behavior Therapy) with a Psychologist. With regular sessions and medical support, it is very much possible to overcome the current situation.
