Married To OCD

Dr. Monnica Williams, Director of the Center for Mental Health Disparities in the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences at the University of Louisville, suggests thinking about OCD as the "third person in a marriage" - causing difficulties for both the person with OCD & the person married to them. 

When OCD shows up, the best thing a couple can do is present a united front against it. Both people need to learn what OCD is, how it works & how to challenge it. It's can be hard, but ultimately worth it.
