  • Sexual Orientation OCD

I just tried to explain my SOOCD to my sister and I felt so illogical and confused trying to explain it because when you say it out loud it sounds so illogical and like denial and I just feel so misunderstood. Has anyone felt this?

Soocd is very hard to explain to someone who doesn’t understand soocd

It just made me think I was in denial tbh

@run99 Yeah I get that, but just because they don’t know doesn’t make it any less real

I’ve been overthinking that before, so I looked online on how should I tell my sister about my soocd, so I sent her this link: https://jackieleasommers.com/2015/07/29/hocd-a-letter-to-loved-ones/ It really helped me, and she was really understanding about it too despite my thoughts kept running over my mind that I’m “coming out” to her even though I’m just telling her my ocd since no one else knows.
