OCD and Procrastination

When my son Dan’s obsessive-compulsive disorder was at its worst, he would spend hours at a time doing nothing (except obsessing and ritualizing of course), even though he so wanted to successfully complete his freshman year of college.

    I am suffering from OCD. I just dream of perfecting things, then there are fears of failure etc. So I procrastinate and never actually work on the stuff.

    I have a son that is 20 years old and he’s been on medication for OCD Prozac for about three years. Hes been getting therapy for 4 yrs but only helps him very little bit. He seem to have no ambition or motivation recently since loosing his job, he appears to be more troubled now. He has experimenting with smoking & drinking with friends over the past few months. Also he often procrastinates and takes many hours doing his OCD rituals,he can’t seem to complete tasks. He starts jobs and either is always late or his performance isn’t good enough for the job. He has stopped going to school d/t always being late and getting dropped from his classes over the past 2 years and I’m very concerned and I’m considering putting him into some type of OCD behavior program but unfortunately financially I can’t afford to do so, I’m just so frustrated because i do t know how to help him or what I should do next!

      😢this sounds like me. And I don’t know what to do. I don’t have enough money to seek help. Feel like its consuming me.
