Couple questions

Quote

Hey guys do you get a weird feeling when you are recovering that your lying to yourself? Like lately I’ve been able to say that this is just ocd that if I do get a thought or a groan response it’s  not real or true, but I still get this anxiety or thought that I’m lying. Also words like gay or bisexual sometimes trigger me depending on the context. Like for me if someone my age comes out that there’re gay I get a little worried that what if that’s me too and all of this was just a cover. I also think about that for the future because right now I’m on medication and god bless because it’s working right now, but sometimes I ask when I’m off this will I actually be gay. Just let me know if anyone else has the same question or any answers

I am most definitely in recovery as well and get the same thoughts! I know i am not gay and I know I am not lying to myself yet for some reason these thoughts still come in here& there. Today actually is one of those days. But we have to keep realizing OCD will never stop, it will never “lighten up” on the content until we really stop caring fully & say fuck it. It’s not real its all OCD and it’s twisted games and tricks.

Hey guys while we are asking questions is it normal in ocd when ever you picture your myself with the opposite sex..it changes to the same sex to check what you feel..... Like I never did this before but now it's happening so often I'm worried... I also keep questioning myself if I'm in denial but I always disregard because if it was actually real you would have been slightly questioning yourself your entire life.... If it only started after hocd then it's not real no matter how fricken real it may seem.

I do the same thing it’s all ocd. what really stinks is that we all think in black and white and our purpose is to learn to be comfortable in a grey area. So disregard no matter what it tells and what you’re doing is re assurance and it never works. just go on with your life even if it feels real. Stay strong ?
