False attraction?

Quote

I have been dealing with hocd close to 6 months and it has became so much better. It doesn’t occupy my mind all day anymore, the only thing keeping me in a loop is the false attraction any time I see anyone of the same sex. I don’t have sexual thoughts about them but the attraction feels so real and I want it to go away!! Do you just need to acknowledge and go on about your day? Or what do I do? How do you know if hocd is slowly going away? I get triggered by any attractive same sex person. It doesn’t cause me near the distress now which also worries me. My anxiety level on a scale of 1-10, is at like a 3-4 now, it use to be at like 10! 
Any advice please?

OCD will do anything, I repeat anything to get you to freak out. And I think what you have is called a backdoor switch or something. It's like you're worried that you're not worried. But you know what, this is what the OCD wants. For us to spiral and freak out and ruminate. You have to accept the thoughts and let them go. What helps me is focusing on the place of contact, like my feet on the floor, or my hands on the armrest of a chair. It helps me feel grounded. Remember, accept them and let them go. And keep faith, you will get through this, we all will.

Thank you for replying! I pray I get over this. I do not want to be bi or gay. I never had a thought in my life until one day, then a flip switched and my life changed overnight. So false attraction is normal? If I could just convince myself that’s normal and ignore it I’m pretty sure I could heal from this. This is the worst thing ever.

Hocd is the worst thing .....first I was repulsed by the same sex...when any unwanted thought came....I also get false feeling of attraction.....but when I started to ignore them...and let them pass...then... something terrible is happening with me...it gives me false repulsive feeling from opposite sex also....and that's make me feel.... anxious and in fear I want my old self back....I always loved girls and never get those thoughts....I m suffering from from hocd since one year and this is getting terrible
