Does your OCD make you feel fake?
Does anyone else feel like your OCD makes you think you are somewhat lying about who you really are to people? My intrusive thoughts/images make me believe that if people knew “who I really was” that they wouldn’t love me and think I’m awful human. This is especially hard with harm ocd. I feel like I’m legit faking who I am to people while I sit there with my ocd and no one knows I’m struggling with it but me. Sometimes I wanna confess to my boyfriend/mom/friends and say “these are the thoughts I am having____” but then I’m terrified of what they’d think. Would they understand or think I’m a freak? People aren’t just gonna admit their intrusive thoughts. They’d instead act like you are insane meanwhile everyone has them but people with OCD have a harder time letting ours go or something. That’s why I do not confess mine but I have urges too bc I feel so fake. People see me as such a nice compassionate person and that’s how I treat people but my head is in a warzone. It makes me feel unworthy of love or something. I just hope at least one person can relate. If you have overcome this, do you have any tips?
