@E'sMom Hi there. Welcome to SG. I've never seen severe OCD other than in hoarding behavior. I bet you've got a lot of stress to manage. I'm glad your son's in treatment, but it must be frustrating to not see much improvement and scary to wonder how long you'll be taking care of him.

Do you ever get breaks for self-care? For example, a family member or health aide taking over once a week so you can have a day to yourself? Caregivers often suffer from physical and mental health problems, so it's important not to forget about your needs.

Yes, you got it exactly right!! It's the not knowing how long something like this will last! When you think you've covered all your bases, and still can't see light at the end of the tunnel, that's what's scary!!

@E'sMom Yep, I totally get it! Please keep coming back, whether to vent or share a breakthrough or get advice. We caregivers need each other for sure.
