  • Sexual Orientation OCD
  • "Pure" OCD

Please forgive me for posting so much but I feel like Im going to explode, I just dont see a way out of the mess I put myself in. I ruminated and paid attention to my thoughts so much in the last 5 months and now im deeply confused, like im losing brain cells here wtf. I dont see a point in ocd therapy bc I think Im just gay and always have been just never noticed it before ocd, theres so much little proof for it and when I add it up it all makes sense. But I cant sit still for 5 minutes with these anxious and delressive feelings they are overwhelming me. What do I do guys : (

I think It always worth It to try therapy, even If you don't think It will help. I also don't think you are loosing brain sells, at all. And you can still go to therapy even If you don't have OCD.

The therapists I want to go for are very very expensive, and I can only have few attempts at It. And I think Im just gay now which is the second biggest reason why I cant commit to going to therapy thinking why go to therapy when Im just gay now.

@Imaan7 have you tried NOCD or Better Help? both are very inexpensive online options that offer insurance. you could also try videos and book. If your still having anxsios thoughts thats a good reason to go to therapy

You need to read books by Martin Seif and Lee Baer if you don’t have money for therapy at the moment.
