I was diagnosed with OCD about 10 yrs. ago. My four year old son is acting really strange and it concerns me. I am taking him to the doctor for his check up soon and I am going to mention my problem but till then I need some relief. First of all my son has never gone to preschool, does not have friends, nor is he around alot of kids. That saddens me. Anyway, he is obsessed with water fountains. Yes...water fountains. We used to live at an apartment and it had a water fountain...that's what started it. His whole day revolves around water features (there are other things he is obsessed with which aren't AS bad). He can build fountains out of blocks for hours if he wanted too. He talks none stop about them. He wants me to tell stories about fountains before we go to bed. It drives me and my husband absolutely crazy. I try to get him to play with other things and join him, but he won't do it. Is he just lonely or should I be concerned. When he does get around kids, they get freaked out because he talks and talks about fountains. I try my best not to get angry because I know that won't solve anything or make him feel any better, but why can't he be a normal boy that loves cars and pretending to be a superhero???? I don't get it.
