Hi. I am a diagnosed patient of OCD and anxiety, and after my 13 weeks therapy session with a professional psychotherapist from January 2019 to May 2019, I was getting better. Generally I have been doing better in my OCD management (in the last objective evaluation I descended one level down from profound level (the highest level in scale of NPU questionnaire sheet)). So far, before, and even during COVID 19 outbreak I have been doing well so far Alhamdulillah. However, one of my anxiety triggers were the wellness of my father, who has cardiac and diabetic complications. So, he is in high work stress and is being manipulated by his ex boss, and current business client mercilessly. And since that person has blocked few of our pending bills, we can't even stop dealing with him anymore. And the line of work is getting increasingly hard due to the situation, which that person do not want to take in consideration, and my father cannot fight back his manipulation. So, he is also very stressed out, and I am very anxious right now for that. I took the self assessment for anxiety test thrice, my score is 93,32, and 91. My question is, how can I help my father to relieve stress, who has cardiac and diabetic problems already? And also help him to fight back the manipulation this person has been putting him through. Also, I personally work in a different field, and thankfully I'm not having trouble with work. However, I also help my father in his business, and this is where things are getting messy. My father is 68.

Dear user,Thank you for your question. Though you had mentioned your problem history, you basically need advice about helping your father, am I right? The problem of your father need more assessment. A face to face discussion with him is required. As a child, you may help him by being his side. Try to hear his concern. Emphasize him. But, if you think he needs consultation, tell him to ask questions here directly. Moreover, if you need any help regarding your issues, most of us are providing support online. So, you can contact your previous therapist who may offer support over phone or internet now. Maya is always by your side.
