Hello! I️ have been struggling with HOCD for a good 6 months now. My whole life I️ have liked boys, and I️ have had several crushes on boys. That is why once I️ started questioning my sexuality I️ was really confused. Before I️ found out about HOCD, I️ though I️ was in denial even though I️ have never had a crush on a girl. Before this I️ had only questioned my sexuality a couple of times, but didn’t think much of it because I️ knew that I️ was straight. It all started out of the blue one day when I️ asked my self if I️ was gay. I️ immediately got a lot of anxiety and told myself that I️ am straight, and I️ was relieved. Then I️ started to get really bad intrusive thoughts which made me think that that was proof that I️ was gay even though the thoughts made me sick to my stomach. I️ am 99% sure that I️ have HOCD, but sometimes I️ feel like I️ am in denial or something. PLEASE HELP!!

@m.isabel HOCD is a cycle of thought in your head, not reality. any more than the cycle in my head that disaster will follow if I don't check the door I just locked a certain number of times has any reality.
