Suggest Remedy For Mental Health Problem

mSo I have really bad OCD. It s mainly that I can not get used to change. I know I have a problem, but I really do not want to go to therapy. My mom has an issue with OCD as well, and this issue is that she MUST move furniture to a different place at least 2-3 times a month. Each time, it gets on my nerves so bad that I begin mumbling curse words and I hit pillows and feel infuriated, and I cringe and if I ever have an instance to where I have to walk through the specific area where the furniture was moved, I can not look at it. Typing this right now is making me want to break every piece of furniture moved. The one that got me most was the Key holder, which was moved to the opposite wall, and I just want to punch it off and break it. Nobody understands how much I am trying to hold in curse words and moving things. My solution is not talking to anyone and staying in my room for days until the next rearrangement. It takes me a good week or if I am lucky a couple of days to give it a chance, or to even look at it. The reason why I don t want therapy is because when this happens, I don t cry, I don t usually move things (although I have), I mainly throw a fit, and my mother, having OCD as well doesn t understand my problem and just calls me mental. She says I am mental and sometimes that I am psycho. She doesn t comfort me, or even suggests therapy in a right way. I have other forms of OCD as well, but this is my main problem. What do I do?
