Hi guys, I’ve recently been diagnosed with OCD, and I’ve

Hi guys, I’ve recently been diagnosed with OCD, and I’ve just been going back over things that could possibly be an indicator that I had OCD. One thing is I’ve always been super conscious of my weight. By no means at I over weight (I would consider myself skinny) but almost everyday since I was 13-14 I check myself out in the mirror a couple of times a day and play with my fat. Like I said I’m
Not over weight but still think that I am fat because I have skin I can grab on, and constantly do so. This could be normal, I mean I am a girl and stereotypically we are self conscious of our weight. Just trying to make sense of my diagnosis.

@CKBlossom so do you think the constant checking of my weight could be a product of OCD or just a normal thing to do?

I know I had researched this question myself because sometimes I am really over preoccupied with my weight. I'll run my hand over my belly to see how flat it is. I'll look for skin to pinch on my stomach to see if I do have any extra fat. I'll avoid looking at myself in the mirror when naked so I don't have to know whether I've put on weight or not. I'm currently only 99lbs at 5'5".... I'm clearly underweight and have been for years... And I know it, but I just can't stop worrying about it sometimes. This preoccupation even extends to my boyfriend's weight at times as well. I definitely think it's anxiety based, and it's not normal to be so preoccupied... But whether it's ocd or not, I don't know. I've also been diagnosed with ocd due to fears of being gay.
