hey friend 🥺💖 I'm someone with OCD who has been through the long-distance phase of an LDR, and I'm happy to say that we made it through. You're going great! Just remember that when those feelings get overwhelming, you can recognize it for what it is, and it will pass :>
Thank you! 💕🤍
Am also in a long distance relationship,actually for about nearly 4 of the 10 years we are together and ROCD since the start although just diagnosed last week. It is hard but you can make it! It's hard to be apart and not being able to check if one still "fits" to each other,I know,but let's see it positive:reassurance seaking is harder this way ...for me seeing each other after long time is hardest, my,difficult for myself to follow, advice is to try not create too much expectations for when when see each other and I guess it is normal that OCD might spike when you see each after a while,but it's not because you have grown apart necessarily but I guess because there is suddenly a lot of trigger (him, in person) again!
Hey thank you so much for your kind words! I needed to hear that, I’m still working to let go of the idea of how I “should” feel. Thank you for making me feel less alone and I’m sorry you’re going through this as well. I’m here for you if you’d ever like to talk to someone
Thanks! Much appreciated!I might come back to that soon,my partner comes visiting me Saturday and I am already worries that OCD will spike. I know,it's so hard to let go of the "should" and checking if it is "just right"! Do you do therapy?
When I saw my partner in September again after 10 months it was the best feeling ever. Don’t worry about the shoulds, just enjoy the moment because they are special. Don’t worry about figuring it out ,you don’t need to. I do not do therapy unfortunately I can’t afford it
