OCCUDE means, acronymically, "to manifest symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)."
Presently, I mean it to be used in a humorous, understated way, as in a well-meaning comment to a stressed-out friend who is acting counter-productively, "You know, you're occudin' again." I can imagine that the verb might gain standing in the language and become respected.
Psychologists might like the verb as a shorthand term for suffering from the malady.
