hey! i also am going through sexual orientation OCD and trans OCD, i’m also 14! i know exactly how you feel. really. if you ever feel like you need someone to talk to that is going through the same thing, here i am!
Hi I just wanted to ask, did coming to the conclusion that you were sapphic feel like OCD?
@lennygirl nope, not at all. i know what you mean and i think i know why you’re asking, i’ve felt really anxious over the thought of “what if this whole ocd thing starts this way and ends up being my actual sexuality/gender”—whatever. but i believe that, an example, if you were actually _______ you would feel happy about the thought of being ______. if you were actually _____ you wouldn’t feel uncomfortable or anxious or literally fear that label. if you were ______ you wouldn’t have constant worry and intrusive thoughts/compulsions. when i realized i’m a sapphic/lesbian absolutely everything made sense and just felt right. ocd doesn’t feel that way at all, not even near that feeling so if you’re worrying about this, at least you have my experience in consideration. (sorry if this sounds like reassurance, that wasn’t the intention)
I would love to talk more if you're up for it. I feel the same way about how I'll be myself if I just come out and life will be easier
