      I’m such a failure at being a good mum to my son with OCD, I know the most important thing is his health, but he’s old enough to move out and the risk of his staying at home is that I don’t know where my breaking point is but I’ve almost reached it. I’m afraid he’s disappointed in me and thinks we should have better living conditions, like more money. But I think there is nothing more I can do to make his life better here. His friend said he could move into their spare room, I love home so much, just feel there is a limit to what I can to put up with.


        So, how does your sons ocd manifest?

        I think probably your son would be best off staying at home and accessing relevant therapy.
