hi,i really feel for you and your family
your mum definitely is in need of more professional support,could you persuade her to see her gp and get a cmht appointment.if one of you could go with her,you could try help her explain how serious the problem is
ive had ocd for years.your mum will be really struggling if shes living alone without some proper professional support.there is only so much you can do.when i was at my worst,and i was living alone,my mum hadto stay with me all the time,i was obsessed she was going to die and hadto perform all sorts of rituals to keep her safe
zopiclone will only really help her sleep,i take that would they wont prescribe for more than a month as its addictive.diazapam helps more with severe generalized anxiety.
i take the maximum of fluvoxamine for ocd.
i dont wanto worry you,but sometimes ocd can carry on over into psychotic type illness,my obsessions got so bad i would see feel things in the end that were not real and i hadto take olanzapine for a few years
none of this needs to happen to your mum.if she gets a proper asessment done quickly,and is given the right medication and support,she could make a full recovery.at least become and remain stable
you can support her,but only so much.you have your own responcibilitys,and it is the NHS job to ensure your mum recieves adequate support
It's nice to be important ,but it's more important to be nice
