Is this Child OCD or not?
I have a 12 year old daughter. From prior to birth she has been difficult! She also can be very sweet and a nice friend. All I can say is everything for her is an issue. Getting up,dressed,brushed teeth, hair, eating, going to school. All of it. Along with homework, planning her day,time,losing things I have never seen someone have such everyday life differculties. She is on Strattera for ADD and Lexapro for depression. She see's a therapist twice a month. On bad days she has so much trouble I can't even write it all down to you to explain. Tired,clothes don't feel right,hates toothpaste and water on her hands,hates seatbelts and has a fit about wearing one everytime we get in the car.
Most of the OCD people I have read about here have fears. She just obesses about everything with herself she can't even get out to be afraid! I am very tired and want to find ways to help this child survive. Everything has to be just right. Same bedtime routine can't sleep without TV on and will stay up all night-another battle. What do you think?
