Hello. I recently started dating a wonderful guy who has OCD. When we started dating he always felt foggy, his metabolism was slow and he had little sex drive. I didn't mind any of this. He is a teacher's assistant for college students, so he has to stay sharp, so he decided to be weaned off of his medication. I have stayed supportive of all of his decisions. He is now going through withdrawal. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology so I have a BASIC understanding of OCD. But I honestly have NO idea how to help him, whene my significant other gets upset he withdrawals. I am studying to be a physical therapist so I am accustomed to helping people. And he likes to be alone when he is struggling. Even though I have "book knowledge" of OCD, I have no idea how to help him. If anybody has any suggestions I would appreciate it. Both my significant other and I are in graduate school and very stressed out. I want to help and be supportive. Thank you for your time and advice. God bless.
