Yes. Most different psych conditions can overlap or occur in the same person, just as you can have ingrown toenails and indigestion. Having one such condition rarely gives any protection against developing another, and especially as GAD and OCD are both varieties of Anxiety disorder, they may co-occur more than some less closely related conditions
