I am here to tell you that you are not alone, my so-ocd can be telling me I'm a lesbian, bisexual...and then when I've calmed down and am feeling secure in my heterosexuality, I am now aro/ace. 😂 just remember that ocd is going to attack everything that means anything to ya. Don't let it win! It sounds like you may have an avoidant attachment style though. Might be beneficial to look into that, good luck! 😊
I’ve looked into avoidant attachment and I relate to it a little, but I’m secure in all my other relationships and had a great childhood so I doubt it could be that? It’s like every conclusion I come to of why I could be anxious about getting into a relationship my ocd makes me doubt it and makes me feel like I’m in denial. Maybe I have some form of rocd? Idk. It’s so confusing and whatever conclusion I come to makes me depressed.
Are you saying you are now aro/ace? Or do you have a theme around this?
@Soph Ahh I see. Well it sounds like you might have some rocd and maybe perfectionism ocd as well? Both highly treatable :) I have so-ocd, ocd can't change your sexuality but it can make you feel like your sexuality is changing. Hope this helps! 😊
