Now What Do I Do? July 7, 2013


Just when I thought things might be getting back to normal, more shit hits the fan.

J has acted weird for a few days now, but today is really bad.  She spent the night with a friend last night and came in this morning. I could tell something was wrong. When I asked, she would only say she was having a rough time. I didn’t press, because that’s the way we are; we give each other space.

She stayed in her room all day, only coming out to eat. She looks and acts like a zombie. I asked her if I needed to be concerned, and she said no. I let it go. Later her sister, S, came by and I asked her to check on her. She said J was having terrible OCD issues. She thinks if she comes out of her room too many times something bad will happen.

OCD is not new, but this extent is. She has very mild OCD, such as rinsing a glass 4 times before filling it with water. As I said, nothing severe. Now, for no reason I can understand, she cannot leave her room.

So now what do I do?

  1. I can see why you’re worried. Even worse, it doesn’t seem like there’s anything you can do except wait and watch. That’s excruciating when you know your child is hurting. ((hugs))

  2. If she goes the medication route and has never tried it, Luvox pretty much quashed my OCD tendencies down to nil. Other than that, space and time are best UNLESS it becomes too extreme then you should try to lend a helping hand be it getting her doctor or therapist or whatever involved. Good luck to her and to you.
