I had the same thing…The reason why you’re asking those questions is because you don’t want to be attracted to certain things. Anxiety is driving the constant checking and questions. Once your anxiety is low you will see you are okay
Hopefully! I notice when I change my settings my ocd isn’t really affecting me. Like when I came back home for Christmas break I had prob the best few days of ocd like it was almost like it didn’t exist anymore then as it got nearer to me coming back to college it got worse. Then when I first came back to college it was rlly minimal again and it was good for me then it’s started getting worse again
@Ilovefinnickodair That goes to show, when your anxiety/ocd is too high - it lies to you.
@bocd Definitely but it is soo convincing
@Ilovefinnickodair I know man, I know….I’ve been there many times before :)
@bocd I’m actually feeling ok! Whenever I start freaking out about something I just don’t figure it out and let the fear be there until it fades away
I have that issue too, like I ask myself that with everybody and it’s exhausting. I can’t even enjoy a laugh with a friend without my brain saying “you’re laughing bc you have a crush on them” and I’m like wait… what?! And then I just developed pocd very recently and it’s absolutely terrible I could just cry bc I don’t care if I’m attracted to the same sex but for it to be children??? I don’t understand how I could live 27 years and al the sudden wake up having these thoughts
Seriously it’s awful. I lived the first 17 years of my life literally with not a so by me thought like that and o have a lot of experience with kids cause I have younger sibling and we fostered so I used to love taking care of them and I worked at a daycare and babysat all the time then a little over a year ago it all came crashing down and it literally feels sooo real and I can’t understand whyyy like logically Ik it’s not true but ocd has me convinced I’m what it tells me I am all the time and the spikes even tho only happen like once a week always make me feel the worsttttt
@Ilovefinnickodair Yes I worked in daycares too!! I babysat, I had younger cousins, and I even have my own children I’ve raised for 5 years without having one single thought like that. It came out of nowhere
@Anon1294 Yeah I want to be a mom more than anything but I’m literally scared to death that The ocd is true and I can never have kids I’m so scared cause it feels just incredibly real honestly
@Ilovefinnickodair It’s not though. When it comes down to it, I know in my heart and mind I would never ever ever harm my kids. It’s ocd. It has told me so many other things before, that weren’t true. “Your moms gunna die” “you’re going to stop breathing in your sleep” “you’re gay. You’re straight. You’re bisexual.” “Your boyfriend is cheating” “everyone hates you” This is just another stupid theme. That’s all, don’t you dare let it stop you from living your life honey.
