Our 26 yr old daughter has suffered from OCD for many years and we have really struggled. Going through very difficult time at present with severe contamination issues. She doesn't believe she has OCD and has been assessed by the maudsley as having OCD with no insight. This diagnosis makes it more difficult to withdraw from her rituals as she insists it's the right thing to do and we cannot work together to make any plan or progress. She refuses to accept treatment. My husband and I are at our wits end as we are fast becoming prisoners in our own home with her dictating what we can do.
I wish some good news for you; I hope the psychiatrist gets to see you son and arranges some help. My husband and I are astounded that our daughter is not motivated to make any changes, her life is truly awful and makes us so sad. All good wishes to you.
I'm so sorry to hear about your situation, OCD is truly hideous when it gets hold of someone. Our adult daughter suffers with extreme OCD and living with her and her demands is unbearable for us, her mum & dad.
