I think i may have OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), which makes
me do my wudhu,ghusl and other activities too many times and this
is wasting too much time. I am missing some prayers because of this
as it is taking me way too long to complete as i recite ayat and
surah repeatedly during salah to carefully trying to pronounce each
ayat correctly and so it takes me a long time to complete my prayer
and this discourages me from prayer even though i want to pray on
time, what can i do for this (this has started happening recently,
before i would not have such doubts and thus pray in proper time,
now i feel stressed because of this)??

I am embarrassed about this problem, so I have not confided it to
anyone and don't want to go see a doctor. I would like Muslims
(especially doctors) to give me advise on how to deal and treat
this problem.
