Most people think Dr. Jekyll- Mr. Hyde displays a good picture of what schizophrenia is. They are however, wrong, schizophrenia is not a switch in character.

Quick Facts
OCD afflicts about 3.3 million adult Americans.
It strikes men and women in approximately equal numbers and usually first appears in childhood, adolescence, or early adulthood.
One-third of adults with OCD report having experienced their first symptoms as children.
The course of the disease is variable-symptoms may come and go, they may ease over time, or they can grow progressively worse.
Research evidence suggests that OCD might run in families.
Usually children with OCD do not even realize what they are doing is out of the ordinary.
Depression or other anxiety disorders may accompany OCD and some people with OCD also have eating disorders.
