I have severe OCD. It's bad and it takes up hours and hours of my day doing stupid rituals. My life has been forever altered as of a month ago when two major trigger events happened my m/c and an issue with my sister. It set me spiralling downward and hasn't stopped. I'm going to a psychiatrist, psychologist, naturopath, and taking Klonopin and 5-HTP. I'm trying to get better...I need to get better for so many reasons. The problem is...NO ONE seems to understand that THIS IS A DISEASE AND I CAN'T JUST GET OVER IT!!! This applies especially to my DH. He's starting to take it out on me by ignoring me, leaving at night, rarely showing compassion anymore. He cries a lot and I know he wants me to get better, but I can't wave that magic wand...I just can't. OCD is a tough thing to cure and I need time.
Is there anyone else that suffers from mental disease and family and friends just don't understand. What do you do??? Any advice mamas...
