OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorders) symptoms have a particular theme, like obsession, symptoms involve fear of getting dirty or contaminated, keeping things orderly symmetrical, unpleasant thoughts, thoughts about harming oneself, thoughts pertaining to sexual or religious subjects. It is common to get these thoughts especially when you are trying to think of, or do other things.
