"My  name is R-, along with my husband, we have a nine year old daughter,and a
six year old son named Michael. Michael was diagnosed in September with obses-
sive compulsive disorder (OCD). I want to share some of my knowledge and expe-
riences  with  you.  I  have obtained my information by reading books, medical
reports,  articles,  and talking to other parents of children with OCD. OCD is
classified as a mental illness caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. It
is  thought  to  be genetic, but has also been linked to birth trauma and head
injury.  OCD waxes and wanes along with the intensity of stress in one's life.
Some  people suffer lifelong, others have only brief and intermittent   episo-
des. Some connections between OCD and Tourette's syndrome have also been made.
Obsessions  cause  a person to repeatedly have the same unwanted thoughts over
and  over and over. Compulsions are the rituals that the person has to perform
for  a certain length of time or a specific number of times. Performing these
rituals  can  help releive stress and possibly may help stabilize an otherwise
disorganized life. The compulsions are usually well controlled in public, even
though  all  of  the victim's energy may be consumed by trying to control him-
self.  Once the person is at home or in a safe place, he lets go. Michael sho-
wed  signs  of OCD as early as three years of age. His symptoms did not become
severe  until  mid-September after beginning the first grade and a month after
sustaining  a head injury which rendered him unconscious for a short time. Mi-
chael's  main  obsessions  are  with dirt and bodily excretions; urine, stool,
spit,  and nasal discharge. His compulsions are handwashing, frequent clothes
changing, and excessive wiping after urination or bowel movements.He also has
to  count,  add,  and record numbers. It takes him forever to make up his mind
and he worries about everything and anything. Michael hoards things from empty
snack  boxes  and ripped cardboard to old newspaper and wire cuttings. When he
is forcefully removed or interrupted from his obsession he will have a fit. By
a  fit  I mean screaming and sobbing for 5 to 30 minutes, clawing and pounding
me,  the  furniture or himself, and kicking or hitting the wall. Afterwards he
is  calm  and  pleasant.  Michael  had  a fit because I put away a stack of 30
books. Unknown to me, he had been saving them so he could count and record all
of  the  pages  read, and then add them up. Now he felt that he needed to read
them  all  over again. He will play monopoly for days, accounting on paper for
every  purchase  and  sale throughout the game. He gets very upset if the game
should  get put away before he has finished it. Another time while I was baby-
sitting  for  a  friend, Michael put on his coat and stood outside in the cold
because  her  baby, who had a runny nose and dirty diaper, had woken up from a
nap.  He will not sit in the spot of the car where his cousin, also a toddler,
sat  months  before.  When we are in a store or a mall we have to examine many
restrooms  until  we  find  one that is clean enough for him to use. He has at
times  wet  his pants rather than use a dirty restroom. Michael has few if any
friends. Although he wants them desperately, he cannot stand for them to touch
most  of his toys because they might get them dirty. He used to wash his hands
for 1/2 hour at a time, and in spite of bleeding, chapping and obvious pain he
could  not  stop.  Michael  has  extreme  difficulty getting himself to school
daily.  Once  he  is  there  however, although not very social, he seems to do
okay.  There are actual dents in the interior of our car as he would loose and
have  a  fit on his ride home from school. Learning to live with and accepting
Michael's  disorder  has  been a lonely and painful road. Our entire household
has  walked  on eggshells trying to keep peace and calm. We have also at times
given in to every unreasonable demand just to pacify Michael. His sister would
literally  sacrifice anything to get him to stop a fit. Suddenly one of us had
something that wasn't going away in a week or even a month and we did not know
how  to  deal  with it. I remember looking at Michael and thinking "My God, my
child  is  broken."  We  had become a dysfunctional family. Even now, with the
intensity  of  his  fits  diminishing and all the reading I have done, I still
look  at  him  during a fit wondering what could possibly be going through his
mind and even though I don't understand, I can feel his torment and anguish. I
know that he simply cannot help this bizarre behavior and my heart just breaks
for  him.  The  most  important ingredient in dealing with Michael, other than
unconditional  love, has been endless compassion. It was best described by his
sister  when  she  said  "It  is  as though something is controlling Michael's
mind."  and I guess that's just what OCD is about. Michael is currently recei-
ving  psychotherapy  with  success  and we are considering medication. Doctors
that  are familiar with and treat childhood OCD are few and far between in the
Cleveland area. We are fortunate to have found an excellent team of doctors at
the  Cleveland  clinic...I have not yet found a support group for parents, si-
blings  and  young  sufferers of OCD, but have considered starting one myself.
Other  people's  reactions  to Michael's behavior have also been very interes-
ting.  I  have people in public telling me what a spoiled child I had and what
he needed was a good spanking. Another threatened to report me for child abuse
while  I  was restraining a fit in the store. The school has tried its hardest
to  help  and accomodate Michael. But in spite of a caring staff, I see a lack
of  understanding due to little or no knowledge about OCD. We are beginning to
feel  the  financial  burden  of Michael's illness and in a few more months it
will  be substantial. The insurance companies have a very low limit for mental
health  coverage  in  addition to paying only for usual and customary charges.
Being that childhood OCD is so rare, we are forced to go to the most expensive
doctors  in the area. My purpose for this article to help others to recognize,
accept and understand OCD. The stigma attached to mental illnesses needs to be
eliminated.  The  public and insurance companies must be made aware that these
are  acceptable  disorders  just  as any other illness or syndrome. Maybe then
families  and sufferers of OCD will no longer have to feel embarassed and will
ask  for  and  get the appropriate help, services, and treatment to which they
are  entitled and which is now finally becoming available. Anyone who would be
interested  in  talking  to me, sharing experiences, starting a support group,
etc.  is encouraged to call at (216)826-3534."
Es vegul egy reszlet unokatestverem  legutobbi levelebol: "Michael is very bad
off right now. He is having a major depression, all he does all day is sob, we
have switched medication but it  will be a few more days before it even begins
to work. He also has Tourettes  syndrome...This  is when  people make involun-
tary gestures, grimaces and sounds. This is also very bad right now.
And school is starting in 20 days..."
