Hi, my 11 yo daughter has recently been identified with OCD - she has probably had it for about 6 months now, with lots of bedtime rituals, hand-washing, hair-washing and a compulsion to have things done in a particular order. This has been really challenging but I think we could cope with this if it wasn't for the extremely aggressive behaviour that has developed alongside. She is verbally abusive to both of us (parents) and increasingly physically violent too. This is most extreme when we 'disrupt' her order, or when she is really anxious - but it is really scary. I am worried she will hurt herself or one of us. Sometimes, we don't recognise her at all - it's as if the OCD has changed her personality. She has started CBT treatment, although i'm not sure how much she's engaging with it.....early days I guess, but I have been trying to read around the subject and can't find much that says this level of violence is linked? Hope that makes some kind of sense!
