Sorry, i don't know how to help you, but i experiencing this about 2 months?I'm trying not to pay a lot of attention to this thoughts, but I'm still struggling with this too You are not alone💞
Try ERP. Try looking at a picture of your boyfriend, and focus on the imperfections. Expose yourself to the thoughts and continue until the anxiety subsides. This is the answer to OCD. Your aren’t a bad person, and you shouldn’t feel guilty, you just have OCD.
Thank you so much I will definitely try that!
You’re welcome, I hope this helps. Works wonders for me.
How long did you do it for before it started working? Also do you have any more ERP treatment ideas I can do at home? My family is looking for a therapist for me right now that does ERP
Are you using the counseling on this app at all? I highly recommend it. I was unable to find a therapist in my area and my counslor works with my schedule so it’s very convenient. There’s a loop tape section in the app where you can also record a saying, like “I’m not attracted to my boyfriend.” Or you could be more specific. You can listen to it for min and then take a min rest. Repeat. Keep track and pay attention to your anxiety level. When you cut the anxiety in half you can keep going or quit! Do this daily if it’s a major issue. You will be less likely to have the thoughts the later. Same regimen with the images. You’ll develop a tolerance to the thoughts that you don’t like. And hopefully you won’t even have them. I noticed improvements using ERP rapidly. Just a few days. However, everyone is different and I really challenged myself to get uncomfortable.
