New: teenaged son with PANDAS whose OCD is spiking again; I have PTSD

I absolutely can relate! You just have to keep holding onto the faith that by staying strong . . . by making the OCD the enemy and loving your son . . . you're doing the right thing for him in the long run. He WILL stop asking you for those reassurances . . . the compulsion to do so will leave him when his OCD doesn't get the satisfaction of your playing along.


It is tough. It is horrible. It is painful. But it is for all the right reasons. So cry if you need to, and cry with your son and give him a hug and let him know how much you love him and that your "hard side" is aimed at the OCD, not at him.


You'll get through this. Many hugs!
