  • Sexual Orientation OCD

So I know it’s normal to compliment someone, right? Yes. Anyways, I was going out to eat with my family, and I saw a guy, I really didn’t think much of it, but my mind said “that’s a hot person” and I was like “yea he is” but not in a gay way (because it’s nice to compliment someone) and now because I have OS-OCD, I can’t stop thinking about it. Like, am I gay for that? And I’m freaking out, because I can’t stop thinking about it. I’m scared, guys. PLEASE HELP, is this normal?!?! IM SCARED!!!

It's really normal, don't worry. You just meant it as a kind thought, but your brain is fixating on it and causing anxiety by making you question your sexuality. It happened to me too. Something that makes things like this easier for me is just acknowledging the intrusive thought and deciding whether or not the statement being true actually bothered me, or if my brain just wanted me to be bothered by it.
