A part of my life that OCD ruined for me is my social skills. The intrusive thoughts affected the way i talked, acted and interacted with others i can’t even look at people for more than 2 seconds i get very anxious if i had to keep eye contact more than that im afraid they’ll know what i think about them or notice the images that pop up. I know it’s impossible for that to happen but i just can’t act normal or have a simple conversation anymore.
I hear you on this too
I’m the same, there’s so much I’ve missed out on socially because of my ocd. 😕
I have social anxiety and I hate it because I want friends and a boyfriend, but I feel that all of this is out of reach.
