Hi i am after some advice if anyone can advise please. My 17yr old has been sufferring with what i thought was a bit of depression and stress, she has been pulling out her eyelashes and hair and got reafered to cbt therapy. My daughter left the councilling and informed them she was feeling alot better, but informed me last night that this wasnt the case! My daughter thinks that she is mental and needs help, i asked her the reason why and she informed me that she thinks she has ocd and anxiety problems, due to doing the list below.
Feeling worries all the time
worried about not turning off her hair straightners and going back 4 times to check that they are turned off.
if shes ill she worries she may pass it on to someone and kill someone.
pulling and tugging her hair and not realising she is doing it
not being bothered about how she looks but then worrys when she is out and about of what people think of her.
tapping her hand so many times
when eating food she goes round the plate in order and doesnt eat it as a meal.
Thinking negative thoughts all the time.
I have made her a doctors appointment for today hopefully, i just want to try and understand and be there for her to help her get through it. I just want my girl back Thanks for listening i appreciate any feedback
