My 8 year old son was diagnosed with OCD in December and we are currently waiting for an appointment at CAMHS. In the meantime we have no idea how to help him and he is getting worse by the day. If we try to interupt his rituals he go's into meltdown and screams and beats me. God only knows what the neighbours think of all the noise! All the rituals that my son does take so long every day that I barely get him to school and myself to work on time and I am physically and emotionally exhausted. I can't bear to see my son like this yet I can't stop myself yelling at him. I am really at my wits end and don't know where to turn so if anyone else has a child with OCD I would really like to know how you cope.
