When I dealt with ROCD so heavily astrology was my biggest trigger. Angel numbers, meaning of dreams, compatibility, etc.
are you over rocd? for me its on and off, but recently astrology and the fact i havent had much physical anxiety are my main themes. i also contribute the fact i havent seen my partner much and pms to my recent flare up 😅
@gigi12 I’m not completely over, it’s on and off for me too. But it transitioned into major SOOCD, that was once on and off but now it’s all I’ve thought about for MONTHS. There’s this account called @awakenintolove on Instagram who helps me immensely with ROCD. She put out a podcast talking about how astrology can be so triggering. I used to take everything as a sign, and when it was a bad sign I felt like my relationship was just doomed. Also PMS definitely does not help😐
I fear my ROCD turning into HOCD or SOOCD, sometimes i get worried. I asked some people about what a certain astrology placement meant and someone said it could relate to polyamory, obviously i am not polyamorous but now i cant stop thinking about it… i love awakenintolove so so much though, when i first found out about my rocd i binged every last one of her videos. are you currently with a partner?
Saaame I love awakenintolove too. She really helped with my ROCD. I have a wonderful boyfriend:) and before him, I went through a lot of relationship trauma so I think that’s how my ROCD and SOOCD manifests, because of course the thoughts didn’t start until I started dating him.
i think ive had some thoughts in my past “relationship” but i just left because i believe they were partially true… the partner im with now is completely worth fighting for though :) its just hard being 16 and having something like this. no one takes it seriously
Yeah! When I was 16 I heavily dealt with ROCD, and it felt like no one believed me..but I’m still with my lovey at 18🤗💕
wow thats amazing! i truly wish you two the best!! did you ever struggle with like cheating ocd?
Yes yes yes heavily. I would get so scared that my boyfriend was cheating to a point where I actually thought he was. I would also get really scared that I would cheat on him!
it was like when i first met my boyfriend it was more anxiety toward him and what he was doing.. now its more me :( i fear i find other people attractive but i know i dont..? its the weirdest thing, thank you for talking to me
Well what I’ve learned is that it’s okay to spot an attractive human being, we have eyes, we’re human, that’s just how it is.
i understand that point, i guess for me its mostly difficult because im pretty sure i dont actually im just stressing myself out about it
