needyou In my day.. But I do them with the feeling of sadness. I feel sad when I have thoughts in the background of my mind.. This is the difficult part of recovery
User2525 Hey can somebody check my absurd theme in other types
User2525 Can someone chak it and reply please
Joe Its funny on this forum- Everyone comes, writes something, and when they dont get the answer they want to hear or dont get re assurance you come back as guests or pretend to be other guests and try THE SAME QUESTION again. I had a post about HOCD which was viewed almost 300 times in 3 days yet every other post as 3-10 views? Everyone is here for re-assurance and are not working towards Recovery!
Seamstress That's not completely true. I know what you mean, but I am here to help in my recovery as well as to encourage others. By the way how do I see how many views are on a post. Not aware of that feature. My main complaint with this forum is all the spam on it. Hard to find the real posts on forum.
Seamstress Never mind. I see the views now. Wasn't looking in the right place.
Hoping True, really hard to find the real posts
Hoping Hey everyone, does anyone have any suggestions or can share the morning routine you use during the weekends? I have severe OCD especially on weekend mornings, even if the rest of my week has been relatively okay.

Oh, totally, the sadness or fear was always in the background for me. But now I am so so much better. you are doing well if you are keeping yourself busy. The sadness will pass, believe me. Just keeping going! Track your rumination. It worked for me, it will work for you, don't give up

Forum breadcrumbs - You are here:OCD ForumOCD HELP FORUM: HOCDI give up

I give up

Quote

I'm so exhausted from constantly checking and trying to save my sexuality. I can tell myself I don't like an action but sure enough after checking a ton one of those checks makes me think I enjoy it. I'm tired of thinking of sex all day long. All I want is to be with my boyfriend but I guess that's been taken from me.

Ocd will give you every kind of "proof" to put you in doubt! Dont fall for it. Disregard the thoughts. Stop ruminating and focus on real life and what you value the most. Whatever ocd puts in front of you, you should know that you cant resolve it. Because you cant resolve what isn't true. Do recovery work and dont give up. It will become unimportant soon. After a while you will laugh at these thoughts! Best regards.

I reached the same stage as you do in way we can be glad that this yet another theme of ocd bcuz i saw others go through this same stage . At this point any thing that has to do with sexual orientation or even romantic relationships make me question and wonder nd ofc test i don't want to be a relieve for us but just know it's all in the ocd game I'm stuck as well but at thid point I'm  helpless to fight hard

I even thought of start running every morning and my mind was like how can you do that when you did not solve your problem yet u can't go back to being happy while you have such problem i even isolated myself from the outside world bcuz it scares me and all this thanks to thos ocd shit I'm involved in

You don't have to see it as a problem! This way you are giving it importance and feeding it. Rather go for a run, start to meditate, it will help you to gain power again over your thoughts. Thoughts are just brain stuff, don't hate on them. But go out and give time to what you most value while having the thoughts and feelings. Disregard them. Cut compulsions. Follow Ali's advices and stop reassuring yourself that this is an ocd theme. Recovery is hard work, is like going to the gym, often you want to give up, but once it becomes your main goal you will enjoy it.

Do the recovery work log your compulsions and time ruminating. You can and will fully recover. There are thousands of people going through what you are going through. Including myself. Biggest advise I can give is

1. Refuse Reaction - don’t react to the thoughts the pathways in ur brain will lead to the thoughts but over time they will go away. By doing the recovery work.

2. Actively choose to disregard the thoughts - by disregarding the thoughts they lose power and your Brain will stop sending them. 

3. log the time you get the thoughts and time spent thinking about it log the compulsions too. Everyday try and improve by beating the previous day score.

I am also in the battle and so are Many others. But you will see improvement quickly. Just keep pushing through. Ignore the thoughts of they come hard ignore hard it’s all OCD it’s all a lie it’s not who you are.

You will be happy to know people are born that way- they dont turn. Its an actual chemical released during pregnancy from the mother. They dont want to acknowledge that out loud because people who are pedos- guess what... are born that way.

Its like someone saying the TSUNAMI IS COMING, THE TSUNAMI is coming- any it never does... and it never will.

Your reactions are keeping it alive- and as bloody hard as it is, you have to view it in your minds eye, and just say yeah no worries, yep.. all the above. Yep, sooooooooo into it. then leave it there. Initially it will ramp up more and more and it will get so bad you want to scream and blast the world... then.... it stops. and drops like a pin...

because the wolf is nothing more than a lamb in a costume.

ERP my friend- and dont give up. I wouldnt say keep fighting, because that is what your doing... and you are loosing the battle.... i will say keep fighting by letting go of useless unnecessary thoughts. It aint you.
