Has anyone ever heard of Harm Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)? I could not find it in the DSM, either IV-TR or 5. I've researched it and there is information on it but I do not think it is fully recognized by the mental health community...but I don't know. Any info would be helpful.* Here is why: Apparently, difficult child's therapist (mine too) told difficult child that this is what she has. That she believes her depression, etc., is a manifestation of HOCD. She recommended difficult child see a psychiatrist to be treated with different medications. Here is what difficult child has: pmdd (severe) and anxiety, which causes depression.* The reason the therapist says it's HOCD is because when difficult child sees a person she doesn't like, it sticks with her, she obsesses about that person and why she doesn't like them and it will often ruin her day. This also happens if someone pisses her off. In her head she can envision being violent, though would not. But it does scare her at times.* I don't mind the diagnosis, but I am wary of yet another diagnosis, Know what I mean?? As soon as the therapist told difficult child this, difficult child burst into tears and cried all the way home. Then she googled HOCD and really lost it, sent me a text and had an anxiety attack. This morning, discussing it she became so upset, she needed to take a Xanax so she could deal at work.* She is not keen on the idea of exploring other medications for the diagnosis. I had suggested that she go back to her gyno to explore options for the pmdd, since that is the one that gives her the most trouble and her anger is cyclic in nature...she's only like that about one week a month.* Anyway, if you've made it this far, please give me your thoughts. Thanks!
