For a WIP, does anyone know when the term obsessive compulsive disorder or OCD first was used?

TIA.

I'll go check wikipedia.

Then double check it again.

I better check it once more...three time's a charm.

And again, to make it an even number.

Sorry...I lived with OCD in my teens and early twenties...black humour is my coping mechanism.

Thanks scarlet. I did check there but couldn't see much on the history. Thx for the chuckle.
