My husband has ocd & I have found it very hard to live with him at times. He has recently started seeing a psychiatrist to help.
I have been married to my husband for 17 years. I always thought there was something odd about his behaviour and questioned it often. He always managed to make me feel like I had a problem with my behaviour and that I should get checked. After having lived with him for so long, I realised it wasnt me and I marched him to the doctors office and he was diagnosed with ocd he is now seeing a psychologist. Im upset with my husband because I only recently found out that he had known he had ocd over 30 years ago and saw another therapist for it. Why didnt he tell me? He put me through hell over the years, and as a result, I went into depression and found myself constantly arguing with him in regards to his behaviour. If I had known sooner I would have got him help sooner & things wouldnt have got to the stage it is now he has lost 5 jobs over 8 years because of it. Which has put huge financial strains on us. Ive had to go back to work full time whilst juggling him my children and our home. His ocd is things like, paranoia, fear of chemicals, hoarding, fear of loved ones being hurt etc anyone else had similar experiences?
