Couldn't find what you looking for?


My mother is suffering from OCD. In her case it is manifested with constant cleaning and washing. She cleans even the furniture every day. In one period, she stopped that and I thought that she started to get better but then I caught her cleaning in the middle of the night. She went to psychotherapy and she did act more normal for a while, but now she is at it again. Can you beat OCD?


Well, there are many ways to fight OCD today. Behavioral therapy, Cognitive therapy, medications, psychodynamic therapy etc. Still, there are cases that prove to be unaffected by any of these treatments I have mentioned. Also, most of the patients deny that they are ill and they give strong resistance to any kind of therapy. Still, I hope that it will not be the case with your mother.
