Okay can anyone relate? So if this ocd. This would’ve been

Okay can anyone relate? So if this ocd. This would’ve been my first form of it. This happened in middle school and then went away and then I started worrying about harm ocd. Knew for a fact I didn’t want to kill anyone but kept having the thoughts and feelings. Then POCD again still knew I didn’t want to do it. Then was worried I had a crush on my dad. With the other forms of ocd, I knew for a fact I didn’t want to do any of it. With this one, I don’t know deep down if inch straight like everyone says... also when I first started dating my freshman year, some kisses I had with boys didn’t make me all happy and warm but my current boyfriend and one other boyfriend did make me feel that way... anyone else relate?

All you're doing is performing ocd compulsions! You're ruminating, going over your past, looking for reassurance.... You need to seek help from an ocd therapist. You're not doing yourself any favors by repeatidly coming on here looking for rearrurance. Without your health, you literally have nothing. You need to start taking your own life into your hands, and get help! This is not the way to live. You deserve to be happy! We can't help you get better by reassuring you will the time. You need to put in the effort to get better, because it's not going to magically happen on its own..... And performing these compulsions is only going to make things worse for yourself. I understand that you strongly feel the need to alleviate your anxiety by seeking reassurance that you are in fact not gay.... But I'm sure you've noticed that the relief you feel after performing a compulsion is only temporary..... It's not actually a fix. I also understand that you're in a lot of pain, and you feel like you're in hell..... But the only way to get out, is to stop caring.... You need to work at not caring what your brain says! Your brain is basically the enemy right now.... And you need to look at these thoughts and worries created by your brain, as separate from who you really are.... Whether you believe they are separate from you or not. But what you really need to do, is go to your doctor and ask him/her to refer you to an ocd therapist. I don't care if you're afraid. I don't care if you start to worry that a therapist might tell you that you're gay. We all know how you're feeling...I know it's scary, but staying locked in this ocd cycle is worse than getting help.
