Hi, my daughter has OCD she hasn't been diagnosed threw the doctor but is skyping a counsellor. I can't get her to see a doctor and things have got progressively worse. I wanted to know how best to approach her letting go of absolute control over every aspect of my daily life. I can't go anywhere or do anything without her say so. I spend most of my day either cleaning or stranded in my bedroom. I know it's my fault I've allowed it to happen but i'd like to try and go back to having some sort of life where I can make my own decisions. She's terrified of contamination. She has now started to hoard empty hand soap containers and used antibacterial wipes. Is this part of the OCD ? And is it common to be afraid of throwing empty drink bottles away in public as she doesn't want to leave her DNA anywhere. Any advise would be welcomed. Thanks for reading.
