  1. Hi My daughter is 22 and has had contamination OCD since age 13. At Christmas you wouldn’t have noticed her OCD to the point that she was concerned that her every day anxiety was disappearing. When she came back from uni in February her OCD drastically worsened. She receives a phone call every week from uni to talk to their mental health worker and is on the waiting list for NHS therapy. Over the past 10 weeks she has been having intrusive thoughts every day all day. She is at home all day and is struggling to even make herself a drink. My husband and I come home from work and she has been crying all day. I can’t give her a hug because of her OCD. I can’t make her bed or do washing for her. We want to do something but don’t know what. Is there any other help out there for her? It is so upsetting to see her like this and frustrating that we can’t help.
