Maybe because your so worried about being attracted to the wrong people that you have put up a kind of wall where you feel safer not attracted to anyone at all ? Not sure but could be that
I think thats accurate, my ocd flares up and my anxiety spikes whenever I'm "in the mood" per se, a lot of times I figured I'd be a lot happier with just no sex drive at all :(
@Robby34 I get you:( not as much now but couple months ago I was struggling with pocd so bad I never wanted to have intemacy because I was scared I’d end up imagining children and liking it. Now I think of it ,it sounds wild but it wasn’t back then 😅but i do hope your ocd gets better we all can do it :)
@Captain marvel That describes my exact situation. I've been scared to be "in the mood" because I'm worried I'll have an intrusive thought about a child and like it. It makes me feel so much less alone knowing others go through this as well. Thank you. I hope the best for you and your ocd too :)
@Robby34 Yes that’s why I downloaded the app I just want to hear others story’s so I know I’m not alone since I don’t have any irl to talk to😅but yeah no problem ahha and thanks:)
It's ocd that gives you the false impression that you're no longer attracted to the same people, it can happen with the help of sadness and intense anxiety. Your mind will try everything to make you believe that what you think is real, most of the things you perceive are ocd-made up. This also often skyrockets when you engage to compulsions and you've found answers to previous ocd doubts which instead of giving you relief only gives ocd more powers and new ways to make you believe that what it wants you to believe is real. It's a master at illusional proof. Sometimes i wonder if our brain just want us to self destruct.
