Anyone know if OCD can be a learned behavior, almost like a habit? Cuz I've had severe anxiety and depressive tendencies my whole life; my doc said it's probably biological. But OCD- one doc said I don't have it and another said I do. And I feel like the environment where I live reinforces any OCD tendencies I have...like I'm always preoccupied about getting things done. Can anyone relate?

Let's just say G-d knew I had a sense of humor.

So basically there are a milion different theorists
the Behavioral, Cognitive behavioral, Psyhcoanalytic, Psychodynamic, biological, Social Cognitive theorists et etc
So each one thinks MI comes from different things, and im almost 5000% sure that one of them says EXACTLY what your saying!!!
