boyfriend has ocd and scrupulosity-need advice
My boyfriend and i have been together 2.5 years and his OCD was never an issue until late 2010.
in 2010 he had a bacterial infection and had to take antibiotics for it, this let to him getting a c. diff infection and triggered his OCD that i am writing about now.
He has been cured from the c. diff infection for over a year now. However, his OCD is very bad. He also has scrupulosity which is bad as well.
because of his OCD he cannot kiss me. we are not sexually active anymore (we used to be, frequently) he wont touch anything that he wore/used when he was sick over a year ago due to his fear of the c. diff "spores", he wont eat with his hands anymore (which doesn't bother me as much as the other things), he wont (and wont let me) use the bathrooms that he used in his own house when he was sick (there is one bathroom we are allowed to use)
he is in therapy for this but the therapist is only working on his scrupulosity issues right now...
His scrupulosity is still bad and varies from day to day in its intensity.
i am having a very hard time dealing with him not being able to kiss me or be intimate with me.. i find myself crying a lot and i dont know what to do.
can anyone give me advice as to how to cope with what is going on with him?
