David Beckham confirmed that he has obsessive compulsive disorder

The new Netflix documentary series about David Beckham reveals the whole world about his obsessive-compulsive disorder. Up until now, only a few knew about it, but now everyone will know. In that manner, he discovered that due to this disorder, which makes his life miserable, he spends endless hours at night cleaning the Beckham's family home.

After his family has gone to sleep, the 47-year-old former football player stays awake for hours after he has already discovered that everything in the closet must be arranged in lines and pairs. The condition compels him to clean his already used candles every day, and he is not afraid to criticize his wife Victoria when, for example, she does not put away the salt.

"I clean so well, but I'm not sure that my wife appreciates it that much. "- Beckham said. "When everyone goes to bed, I then walk around, clean the candles, put the lights on the right setting, make sure everything is tidy.

I hate it when I come down in the morning and there are still cups, plates... Sometimes it's tiring to go around every single candle and clean it. I cut the candle wax, clean the glass around it... I know, it sounds strange."

Beckham and his lifestyle: OCD is one of the groups of anxiety disorders

As part of the Beckhams' lifestyle, they live in a £25.4 million mansion in London's Holland Park, which they bought in 2013, and which features eight bathrooms, seven bedrooms, a gym and a spa, as well as a swimming pool.

The disorder known as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is one of the groups of anxiety disorders that is characterized by obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors. When someone suffers from OCD, he or she understands that some of their actions are irrational, which is why they find these actions unpleasant, but they are unable to stop them from occurring.
