My Dad is getting worse - September 1st 2009, 01:42 PM

I posted a couple months ago about my Dads OCD.

Well he is getting worse. His temper is also showing through, it gets really bad.

He shouts if there is 1 crumb on the carpet, so he picks it up and spends ages washing his hands after.

Everything has to be perfect.

I guess Im typing here because I'm scared OCD is really starting to take over him and the family.

My mom is getting worse, she shouts all day long; its like she finds something to yell about...if she sees a crumb on the floor she will start calling me and her other kids sacks of shit and useless muther f's and say you guys ain't gonna never be shit. Then start saying she wished we were all dead (and says it to the top of her lungs).

Her outbursts just keep getting stronger and stronger and longer and longer.

Hey there Jaymi.

I'm really sorry to hear that your dad's OCD is getting worse. It sounds like it is taking a toll on you and the rest of the family, but more importanty on himself. There are many ways that OCD can be reduced.

Is your dad currently on any medication or going through any therapy?

The most effective way of reducing OCD is to go through Cognitive Behavioural Threapy (CBT) whilst taking medication. The two combined can have very positive effects. If your dad isn't going through any at the moment I would reccomend that he goes to see a doctor as soon as possible.

If your dad is currently on either of them (or both), then I would reccomend he speaks to his doctor / therapist about getting the strength increased.

Thats the problem. He refuses to go see a doctor. He refuses to take medication, He knows he has serious problems, but whenever he does an 'OCD' he just jokes, about it.

I keep telling him to get therapy, but he just laughs it off...Im really scared...

Hey Jaymi,
I guess going to see someone for something such as OCD makes it more real that you actually have a problem. If you don't see someone about it you feel like it's a lot smaller than what people are making out and it's easier to deal with. I would definately carry on encouraging your dad. Obviously if therapy isn't for him he could try another alternative but speak to him and let him know how much he is worrying you. Tell him exactly why you're wanting him to go, if it's effecting your whole family then it has to be a pretty serious problem and something he should at least try and get some form of help for.
Good luck Jaymi

Your completely correct, but my dad can get so agressive.

I will try. Again.

Thanks for the replies.

Try and catch him at a good time and I'm sure you'll be fine and if he starts to get agressive then leave it till he's calm.
I'm sure you'll be fine Jaymi

Hey there Jaymi,

I'm also to sorry to hear about the difficult time your father and your family are having right now, it must be hard for you.

I have to agree with what Paige has already said - trying to talk to your father is the best thing that you can do right now. I think that if you do keep talking to him, if you can, explain your concerns to your father and perhaps even gather some information about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and ask him to at least read it, rather than disregarding it. If you could get other family members to encourage him too, that could also help - encouragement is very helpful. However, this is ultimately up to your father Jaymi and you can't help someone until they want to be helped.

I hope things improve.
Take care.
