Woman Whose Husband Has Debilitating OCD Says, ‘It’s Ruined Everything In Our Life’
Robin says her husband, Mike, has extreme, debilitating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and because of it, lost his job and now stays at home doing his compulsions all day.
“Everything in his life is about rituals, orders, routines - counting, checking, validation,” she says, adding that Mike’s OCD has become increasingly worse over time. “He stays in the same clothes for weeks at a time. He can’t shower, he can’t trim his nails. He can’t shave his beard. He can’t brush his teeth.”
