How long can she keep her OCD in check?
How long can she not see her friends and be social?
How long can keep in control?
How long can she stay isolated?
My daughter had struggled with OCD and anxiety for most of her life. Her anxiety often presents itself in the form of anger. She has worked hard in therapy to develop strategies to calm her emotions. She has worked hard in therapy to overcome her need to wash her hands and wash her phone with exposure. And now she has to go back to cleaning and washing all the time and this is causing her anxiety which is causing her to be angry. I hope that this Covid-19 won’t set her back.
My daughter had worked hard in the gym for the last two years. It has been her outlet for her emotions and energy. And now that is no longer an option of her. She is very rigid and can’t adjust her workouts to match the social distancing necessary for this time. I hope that this Covid – 19 won’t set her back.
This is a tough time for everyone but for kids and adults like my daughter it offers new challenges. I hope I can offer her calm in the storm. A safe place.
