ocd

my 8 year old daughter was doignosed with obsessive compulsive personality disorder, and we are having a rough time right now, her twin sister is completely the opposite of her. She gets upset when things are out of place and it is difficult with two toddlers running around! any tips or advice? thanks

      yes, we spoke to him about where to go from here and she has a therapist and she will be working with her for once a month and he said that we have to be very clean, and understanding of her when she gets upset, I asked him about the little ones and he aid he couldn't help me there, that maybe Audrey would need to be out of the house for a while, which is out of the question. I was just hoping to get a grasp on how to help her, thanks!

        Aw that has to be really tough.. I won't lie.. I definitely am a little OCD.. so being diagnosed so young and feeling that way has to be tough on her too.. it feels like it's out of her control I assume.. how she feels. Talking, communicating openly and just walking her through things would probably be my only advice.. wish I could help more! And just understanding where her mindset is too..

        Thank you so much meg! she is doing really great right now and focusing on her school work and her ponies so hopefully that can be therapudic working with her horses, she gets a sense of them not always being perfect and she accepts that as something that is not "bad"
