OCD destroying my relationship with my mother.

I've had OCD since I was 9. My OCD used to not be much of a problem but now that my Tourette's has almost completely gone away and is so insignificant in my life, it's my OCD that's destroying me and my mother's relationship. I have these thoughts that she's dirty whenever she gets up in the morning even if she showered the night before. I also have these thoughts when she has worked out. I have to avoid her when were in the house together when she is in her "dirty" state. If she has just walked through the hallway or a room I cant go through that hallway or into that room without getting anxiety. The same goes for my dad but it's not half as severe as it is with my mom. It really seems to hurt her feelings and I get so frustrated over this obsessive thought that I take it out on her. I know she's not "dirty" and even if she was I know that it wouldn't hurt me in anyway to walk by her.

Anyway, it's the main thing that has destroyed our relationship and now I'm starting to get the faintest of these thoughts around her even when she has showered. I try not to let these thoughts bother me when she has showered and try to be around her a lot more so that this small obsessive thought doesn't turn into something more.

I go to cognitive behavioral therapy and take Luvox but it isn't helping much. If anyone has any input or advice on this I'd really appreciate and need it!
