Hi all I am new here.
My son is 10 and has been diagnosed with TS, ADHD and OCD.
Latley whenever he has a bath/shower, before he goes upstairs, downstairs or outside he needs to tell me he loves me. This has been going on for about
a couple of weeks. My question is... is this a tic or is it his OCD?
He did tell me that he just has to say it, sometimes he is afraid that he will die in the bath/shower or upstairs and he wants me to know that he loves me.
He is also very much afraid to go to bed at night, his room is upstairs and he can't cope with me being down in the basement. He keeps yelling down I love you, asks when his sister is coming to bed, what am I doing.
If he is still awake when I go to bed, he becomes very upset that he will be
up alone, I will fall asleep before him.
He wants to come and sleep in my bed, my question is where do I draw the line? Do I let him sleep in my bed?
Is all of this OCD??
Any input would be much appreciated!
