So I used to get A TON of anxiety and distress  when I got thoughts saying what if you like her what if you are lesbian etc. Now I get barely anything to no anxiety or distress. And now the thoughts have become oh you like her or oh she’s dressed nice so you like her. I used to check to see if I was gay by going to forums like these or searching up am i gay etc. I did this A LOT but now I don’t check as much as I used to People say that it’s HOCD and if it weren’t i wouldn’t be on forums like these. But I can’t stop thinking about the fact that maybe I’ve convinced myself it’s HOCD when really I’m just gay in denial. I keep getting thoughts from my past as well that could show I’m gay but I just don’t want to be. I have told my parents what is going on and they told me I had nothing to worry about, I was straight. But I can’t stop thinking about the fact that I might just be in denial. Please help

Yeah i think this is problem that everyone with hocd deals with, it's a hard to stage to cope with, took me a while to prepare myself for this stage, you'll get through it though. Great that you've told your parents, relieves some of the stress. Remember what words you used "i don't want to be gay" so your not aha. Just gotta do what ali says
