London: Actress Emily Blunt is concerned her obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is becoming an issue in her life, because the condition is worsening with age.

The 29-year-old was recently diagnosed with OCD and she fears the condition is getting worse as she has noticed changes in her mannerisms, reported Daily Express.

"It`s very weird. It`s only happened in the past year. I`ve started getting very superstitious and fixating on things. I`d get these obsessive moments, it`s becoming an issue. I`m in the middle of the street and my dog is peeing on a tree and I`m touching it," she said.

Asked why the condition is worsening, Blunt said, "I don`t know. I think I`m just worrying lately about my friends and family. I`m lying awake, and getting older and realising how precious everything is; losing that slightly cavalier quality you have as a teenager when you say and do silly things."
