Wellcome to our forums !
I’m so sorry that your son and your family is going through this.
I totally understand I suffered with severe anxiety OCD it was a very horrible cruel condition to go through.
The anxiety that accompanies OCD is crippling and terrifying the panic is very distressing to the sufferer.
My recovery started from seeing a gp we did a mental health plan together this enabled me to see a clinical psychologist and I also saw a psychiatrist who diagnosed me.
I was put on a antidepressant to help me to manage my anxiety .
After being diagnosed this led me to a clinic that specialised in OCD it was a group therapy.. it was an intervention into the OCD.. the therapy I did was meta cognitive therapy this therapy changed my life.
Im so sorry you have to wait so long to see a professional….. I highly recommend you see someone who specialises in OCD maybe see if there is a clinic in your area that does therapy for OCD.
Your sons anxiety level may be high that could be why he has had a change today…. the anxiety that goes through the sufferer is severe.
Please go back to your gp ASAP and insist on needing to see a specialist ASAP so the specialist can help your son to start intervening on his OCD.
OCD also consists of compulsions a lot of my compulsions were mental and couldn’t be seen physically but these compulsions were keeping me in my OCD cycle.
OCD is a vicious cycle but it is a cycle you can learn how to break free of with the correct help.
