So I have OCD and now that I'm getting down to the last couple weeks, my anxiety level has really gone up. I have already been depressed and trying to control my OCD with a family who doesn't understand or help (haven't been able to do my cleaning routine because of my anemia and I get really dizzy and tired after just 30 mins so my house to me is filthy)...plus my 2 aunts and uncle live downstairs and they cause even more of the problem when they do things in my house that drive me crazy.
My main concern with the new baby is that I don't want people holding and touching all over her. My aunts and uncle smoke and are always coughing and sick, I don't want them around the baby. I have had nightmares about whooping cough and her getting really sick (which is part of my OCD, I have anxiety about all my kids all the time). I know they are going to want to, and I know I am going to hurt someones feelings - what are your thoughts on how to handle the situation? I feel like I am just going to lock myself in the bedroom with her until she is a few months old.
