I am at the end of my rope. My husband has OCD. He is on Prozac and sees a therapist here and there. How consistantly whould he be seeing a therapist? She specialized in CBT, but I don't feel like he is making any progress. W have two small children and they are noticing that Daddy is different from other dads. We don't have a problem with this and I explain as best I can to my kids that God made everyone in their own special way. If we were all the same, it would be no fun. They adore my husband. I use to. Now, I am just angry and resentful all the time towards him. So much so that I feel like I am the one who needs therapy now! I feel like OCD has become #1 in his life. I am ok if I am not #1..I don't need to be, but when it comes to the kids, that's a different story. I feel like I am the mom, dad...everything around here. He cannot dress himself in the am. He has issues with the closet, so I get his shirt and pants. He can't walk in or out of the house on his own. If we are out seperately he will wait in his car until I come home so that he doesn't have to open a door. Then once I do get in..he never helps with the kids. It's all about him and this god awful disease. Sorry, I am bitter. I really want to kick ODC's ass! It seems as though the list of his issues are endless. I am a very kind, compassionate person. I am trying my hardest to keep our marriage together and understand his disease, but most days lately it's been really hard. What should I be doing? What should I not be doing. He keeps telling me it's not my problem..it's his. BUT, I am the one doing things/rituals for HIM!!! I have had ENOUGH! I just want a happy life for me and my children. I just want him to be free. My heart breaks for him, but I do not know what else to do. I feel like I have nothin left to give, it's been so long. ANY and all advice would be most appreciated. God Bless.
