Obsessive compulsive disorder - OCD treatment and therapy from NOCD

Perfectionistic OCD

Perfectionism, also known as Just Right OCD,  is one of the most common ways obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is portrayed in movies and on television. A character with OCD is typically oversimplified and shown as constantly arranging items until they’re perfectly aligned, and may be called a “neat freak.” Outside of the media, we’ve also colloquially developed stereotypical phrasing for someone who is extraordinarily clean and organized, dubbing them “so OCD."
