My 7 year old daughter,is now being treated for ocd? through cbt. is sid and ocd alike??

Hi i have been having huge problems with my little girl,she is now being treated for ocd/phobias...Anxiety.


I have looked into every disorder you can think off,and out of all of them SID was ticking all the boxes,but also the more i read about OCD it also ticks lots of boxes. Although alicia seems to have the rare kind of ocd with clothes.

Can anyone tell me if OCD and SID are at all alike??

Thanks Emma uk

8 year old son has SPD and OCD and anxiety
by: Anonymous

Our son was a very unhappy baby. We had a awful experience with his immunizations (very high fevers). We have had so much trouble with his clothes! They have to fit perfectly. He use to have a lot of triuble with transitioning from one activity to another. Sometimes he would have full toddler type fits.

We started seeing a naturalpathic docotor, he was tested for food sensativities and started a gluten and dairy free diet. That really helped his over all health and he felt and looked better. Then in grade 2 we started giving him 1 tablet 50 mg of Griffonia ( natural source of triptafan, a precursor to serotonin) and he REALLY improved. He started giggling and showing more empathy for others and his fits stopped.
It was a life saving, it is natural and non adictive with no known side affects. You can buy it at any health food store.

A year on and still no luck..UK

Hi thanx,

Well its a year on for us and my now 8 year old daughter is still having the same problems.

The ocd treament through CBT was not working at all, we have now started again with CAMHS uk, and they now arnt sure it is OCD,but think she may have had worries that could have now caused the problems she has?

Its hell for us, everyday is a nitemare for my daughter and us.

Hi

My son is 9 and just started being treated for anxiety and his doctor was concerned with OCD because of his hair twisting and his inability to let things go... his doctor was saying that OCD and Anxiety manifest in everyone different.
I do not know the medical side of how these two might be related but as a mother how can they not be? I see my son react to the things around him and from what I read, it is our goal as parents to teach them how they might better respond to the stimuli. I see his anxiety to noise, I see how certain things affect him and wonder why we did not start treating for anxiety sooner.
I'm glad to know we are not alone in treating both. I wish you, your family and your little girl the very BEST!!
