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.
Hi - I sympathise with everyone writing here! Our adult daughter - lives with us - does not accept she has OCD and believes her contamination fears are justified. We have been drawn into her rituals and life is v difficult for us - her mum and dad.
Hi everyone, just wondering how things? I hope there have been some improvements. We are really really struggling with our adult daughter and my husband and I do not know what to do. She shows no signs of wanting to get help and continues to make huge demands on us.
