I remember well when I was about 10 me and a friend read a book about sexual things. There was a passage where it said something like„when the p***s gets aroused more and more there happens e*********n“. I remember being turned on by that thought and even masturbating to it later. This is the thought that by far is producing the most anxiety and is like a 100% proof that I‘m at least bi. I
I mean how can someone be straight if he was jerking to dicks an was aroused by these thoughts? I never ever chased men in real life or thought about doing something with their dicks but like I said in certain situations I was turned on by them. In Real Life I only was turned on by girls not one time by men. It feels like before puberty I was gay, in puberty straight then.

Better couple of days. Back to tracking - by pen and paper. I would say most times I am 80% recovered. Just this silly 20% that I seem to fall back into when I am anxious.

Perhaps you were doing too much before. Maybe reduce exposures and be successful and then go on from there increasing gradually.
Anonymous178601 Ivwas watching a few videos a day. I mean I barely have any anxiety left there are occassions I get a little bit of anxiety but not super high also the only thing that remains so far are the thoughts and thats it. Also the videos arent something I would be watching everyday if I was my old self.

Evening Seamstress. 80% recovered is a pretty good place to be, even if you can't quite see the finishing line at the moment. Give the tracking more chance to work and maybe just aim for a little improvement each day. Be the tortoise and not the hare 🐢🏁

OK. My opinion, for what it's worth, is that you're placing far to much importance on what seems to be some pretty insignificant childhood memories. All kids are curious about s*x and many will experiment. Keep going on with the recovery work (watch Ali's videos if you get stuck) and work on reducing the time you spend ruminating about such things. Good luck.

Okay I understand. But how to react because I really get the feeling if once I was aroused and jerked of to dicks and sexuality can’t change then now I‘m too. How to react to that proof?

These childhood experiences do not prove that you're gay. If you weren't suffering from HOCD, you would view these thoughts as irrelevant and not be troubled by them. Keep doing the recovery work (reducing compulsions and rumination) and disregard thoughts related to your theme.
Anonymous179146 Hello I have severe harm OCD… i’ve had for the past few days severe anxiety every waking moment bc i’m afraid i’m gonna kill my cats… tho i know i would never do it… I BUT… when I was younger 13-16 i would act on harmless intrusive thoughts (nothing about actual harm, just weird stuff) and my OCD keeps telling me that bc of that, i am MORE LIKELY to act on my thoughts than anyoneelse
Anonymous179146 I know im not a psychopath, and that i love my cats and dont wanna harm them ever… but i fear i will suddenly do it anyway to ”get the thought out of my head ”

These are just OCD tricks trying to draw you into ruminating, seeking reassurance, doing compulsions etc. Let the thoughts be there nagging in the background without fighting them and perhaps try to engage in something to re-focus your mind and thoughts. ali has many videos on harm OCD etc.

Look up Ali greymonds False memory ocd. If you are doing active recovery work your mind might be trying to twist things. To get you to rumminate. Or so I believe but lets wait for Seamstress to answer because I am on first stage recovery in my theme of ocd.
Anonymous178601 Does anyone else get frustrated. Is it normal I get frustrated at the thoughts because I have had enough. There are nights I am good and then there are nights where I am really frustrated.
Anonymous178601 I have just been going through a roller coster of emotions. Sometimes I am sad sometimes I am okay sometimes I feel like throwing up because of the thoughts. However I dont know if that means I am in the right track to recovery I disregard the thoughts. I barely do any compulsions unless its really bad. However its very little to non. Is this normal in recovery?

Remember I am no expert - just a fellow sufferer trying to help others when I can. My input would be that OCD feels very real and can attack memories. The more you focus on these thoughts the stronger they will get.

Of course, all OCD thoughts can feel real. That is what feeds the OCD - the fear of it being real. Ali has many videos on the subject. Check them out.

How to Study Online Courses Effectively

Quote

Online classes are great. Online classes don't require you to travel to the class. Instead, you can simply sit at home with your computer and receive instructions from your lecturer.

Even though online learning is more convenient and cheaper, it can be difficult for students to concentrate. There are so many distractions. From emails, social media, and the temptation to fall asleep while studying at home.

A strict schedule is the best way to ensure that you are able to complete your online masters while still working. To get the best lessons and instruction, you'll need to plan your time.

Although we have all been exposed to classroom education in school, online learning offers something entirely different.

If you are struggling to keep up with your online learning, don't worry. You're not the first person who has enrolled in an online course. This infographic provides eleven useful strategies and tips to ensure your success in eLearning.

  1. You should choose a study space with reliable Internet connection

It is likely that you will need to consult online lectures and take notes while studying. A study area that is not interrupted by the internet will be essential. Internet access is crucial during study sessions.

  1. You can create a study plan

Online courses require you to stick to a set schedule. Although you are not required to attend lectures or classes at particular times, you need to continue to study the material on your schedule. You need to be self-disciplined. Every week, schedule a time for your class to be logged onto and you can also download the study materials.

  1. Discipline yourself / Avoid distractions online

It can be difficult for online courses to adhere to a strict schedule. It is important to be consistent with your schedule. You will be successful in your online course if you have self-discipline.

If you are using social media accounts on another tab of your computer, it can distract from your online course. Do not surf the Internet or check your email while doing classwork.

  1. Learn actively

Learning is possible when neurons in the brain are active. To learn effectively, it is important to engage your mind. Take notes and recall information in your own words.

  1. Stay Motivated

Motivation tricks are a great way to get results. You can listen to your favorite music and study, or you could imagine yourself in an hour having finished the task and taking a much-deserved break.

  1. Print any materials

Sometimes your computer or the internet can become distracting. To study, it is a good idea to turn your laptop off. You can also print things such a course plan and syllabus.

  1. Take notes during online lectures

Notes can be taken online in the same way as during a lecture. Use a pen and paper to make notes. Handwritten notes retain information more effectively than typed notes.

  1. You can test it

You can still take practice tests even if your library doesn't offer them. Keep a list of everything you know after each chapter, and frequently ask questions about what's being taught.

  1. Avoid multi-tasking

Research has shown that multitasking decreases the brain's capacity to store new information. So if you constantly switch between tasks, all that information could be going in one ear.

  1. Take breaks

It is important that you take breaks from studying. Enjoy something, such as watching TV for a couple of minutes or taking a walk. You'll feel refreshed and recharged after taking a break.

  1. Online friendships

Connect with other online learners. You can meet up to study together; discuss your challenges with them; and, finally, you can engage in collaborative learning which promotes student engagement and deep understanding.
