I suffer with OCD, high anxiety, and an eating disorder. My OCD has always been there, but has recently started getting WAY worse. I only get about 2 hours of sleep per day. I work graveyard shift to begin with. On my days off I'm either to scared to do anything out of fear of upsetting my family or I spend the entire time cleaning my house from top to bottom. Everything has to be in alphabetical order. I can't have any cabinet doors open, closet doors and dresser drawers also. I wash alot. I have kept all my symptoms under raps for a long time but over the last 6 months they have progressively gotten worse. My boyfriend of two years doesn't understand anything that I am going through. How can I help him understand that I'm not crazy? How can he help me get better without hurting? All advice or comments are extremely appreciated. I'm new to this whole support thing. I've kept my rituals and OCD to myself for so long it's hard for me to ask for help. I'm at the end of my rope now though, this is taking its toll on my family.
