I had my first meeting with a therapist on Saturday. I had already been diagnosed before but he I interviewed me and found that I did qualify for OCD. They ask questions like what kind of thoughts do you have and then about your family. They are very understanding and trust me Pedophile OCD is more common then you may believe it’s just that people don’t want to talk about it because they are fearful like you but these therapists have seen it before so you won’t be judged. The only way that you are going to feel better is to get help and this app is a good place to start.
I had my diagnostic appointment last Friday where I was diagnosed with OCD and my specific themes.
For a long time, there was a tiny little corner of my brain that believed my thoughts were right and that my eventual therapist would say I was a terrible human being. It's taken me a while, but I've begun to recognize that even if some of these thoughts are coming from a rational place or seem rational, I am not experiencing them in a way that shows they are fundamentally rational or healthy. Even knowing that, though, I still have some anxieties. I think everyone's a little scared of being judged. You're definitely not alone.
