Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a mental disorder that often involves ritualization, anxiety, and intrusive thoughts.
While millions suffer from OCD, the mental disorder is often misunderstood by the general public and misrepresented in the media and pop culture.
Allison Gurvich is a 14-year-old OCD sufferer who shares her personal struggles with VICE in the hopes of destigmatizing the illness and creating a support community for others affected by OCD.
