Once you have a worried thought that you are gay, what do you do next typically? What do you think right afterwards ?
Think more? Figure out If I actually am or not, even though It feels like I just am somehow. Try to understand the feelings, or understand what the thoughts exactly mean or say. Deciphering them I guess. Theres alot of thoughts/feelings that follow up or happen at the same time tbh.
@Imaan7 That's sounds very compulsory to me. Compulsions can be completely mental. General anxiety is different its really not about most hocd themes. Its worries about school, it's worries about the future, it's worried about sleep, it's worried about social settings, it's excessive worries about Financials, how people see you, There's overlap but it's not really about if ur gay or not. Listen, if ur gay u pretty much know you're gay. There's anxiety about coming out of the closet bc of family members and society and internalized homophobia, but you typically know. I'm bisexual . I made my dolls make out when I was 6, I had possessive feelings over some of my best girl friends, then at 14 I kissed a girl I loved it. I still didn't admit I was gay until about a year after that when I felt real feelings for the girl and wished we were together.
@whatadooo If you have a intrusive though Ex "I think I'm gay" And then you start thinking more thoughts to try and dissuade or analyze it further till it "makes sense " or u can find comfort or find a conclusion. That's the compulsion.
@whatadooo Im just worried that I have come to a conclusion, cant accept It and have Gad and not Ocd.
Gad and ocd are strongly related and it's common that you'll have both of them together. Did it also take into account of mental compulsions? Not everyone is well educated about pure o
It didnt, Im worried though that I dont have any mental compulsion either. I just dont know know If I do or not
Haha, I was in the EXACT same boat as you a few months ago. Sucks, doesn’t it :(
Regarding hocd? Ive seen people say that were questioning for a long time and had Gad, it feels like that Im like them
@Imaan7 Yep, regarding HOCD
@OCDumb >:( If it helps, I’m straight with homosexual ocd, as opposed to gay with straight ocd
@OCDumb >:( Same, Im straight ( I think Idek at this point) with hocd. Wdym opposed? Straight people with hocd are more common than gay people with hocd
@Imaan7 Mhm. I just wanted to clarify, haha
