Lina is 8 and has a routine which I know most of you can relate to in vary degrees. Anyway my question is when does routine actually become OCD?
With her if I have to change her routine permanently and don't have the chance to do so slowly we have a minimum of 2 weeks of hell while she gets used to the new schedule and if we have to change the routine order of how she gets ready for school or the doctor the length of hell increases.
Is a routine just another word for OCD in sn children?
EDIT: Actually after posting this I just realized that I began the routine ordering of her life when she was a baby and I first noticed that she had problems. So if routine is another word for OCD who really has OCD her or ME?
