    I have been diagnosed with OCD, the doubting disorder, for basically my whole life.

    What really sucks and is so extremely difficult is that my thoughts don't have a "thought filter" ..which means doubts come in just as strong as any other thought..which make me incredibly deeply confused and usually extremely emotionally upset.

    Its hard enough and a challenge realizing you have same sex attraction. But when your mind doubts even that..over and over again..it just seems impossible. I am not on meds really, and know i need to be. This is just so hard. I want to really work on loving myself...but this OCD just beats the shit out of me constantly.

    Man, it does kick your ass. I have it too, the beginning of treatment is knowing it is there, I was told that when you are having a moment that causes you doubt that seems unrealistic, tell urself that it is an OCD intrusive thought, this helps yourself realize that it is unrealistic. Works every time! Good luck friend-Tonyicon_smile.gif
