My son's mental health

by Patricia

Please pray for my son, Alex, who has severe OCD and who needs to move into supported accommodation within the next month or so. The move is necessary for his sake, as it will help him recover from his OCD, and will teach him the independence skills he needs in order to survive on his own on a day to day basis, but it is also necessary for his family, as we find it very hard to cope with his mental illness as Alex is very controlling and is making the lives of the people around him very difficult, something that he does because we are family, and something he would not be able to do with strangers and care workers. I am suffering because most of his OCD is focused on me, and it's got to the point where I am told how to stand or speak. My daughter stays at her boyfriend's house rather than come home because she cannot face being with her brother for more than a few hours at a time. Life is very hard at the moment and the only light at the end of the tunnel is this move to supported accommodation, so we really need this to happen as soon as possible for all our sakes. Amen.
