  • Sexual Orientation OCD

Can you get to a point where your body is exhausted from anxiety so you still have all the same thoughts but you feel indifferent to them? I’m so confused at the moment with what’s going on in my head.

i've been this way for a while now, makes me feel like i don't have ocd and that's really me, especially because the feelings of liking it are still there too and it feels so real

I definitely have been feeling more numb to the POCD intrusive thoughts. They've run through so many years now it is starting to seem like old news XD

@ode but is it normal not to ruminate or do compulsions or feel anxious??? these are the key components of ocd yet i lack them (idek atp)

@Lilyrosalynd Might be a good topic of discussion for a therapist :) but maybe this is you recovering? :)

@ode i honestly hope so although i haven't gone to therapy nor done erp, i just got to a point where i could ignore the thoughts.

Me too. It’s like I care but I also don’t care anymore? I just wish it would all go away but everyday it becomes more convincing. I feel like I am fully convinced right now and I don’t feel anxious.

Me too. Sometimes I even feel ‘good’ but Idk if that’s because I’m recovering or because this wasn’t OCD at all. I don’t want to be okay with this anymore

These egodystonic thoughts are changing my ego. I feel like all my morals and ideals have been altered and I want them back please let me have them back

There are points where they just happen and all you can do is accept they are there 🤷🏽‍♂️

I have this happen multiple times. It helps to take time and let your body recover from all of this maybe read a book that has nothing to do with romance or spend time with family. Just anything that will help you relax your body
