  1. I’ve messed up so badly.

    Hi Lily, poor you you are getting so wound up over this. Calm down youve done nothing wrong. You are wayyyyyyyyy over analysing things and the specifics of what you did or didnt do or thought when you touched yourself. You are getting caught up in the detail. You should try some relaxation and meditation to calm down.
  2. Questioning attraction

    you are looking for reassurance here i think. only you know how you feel about someone. you need to let trying to figure out how you feel go. say to yourself it doesnt matter and go about your day.
  3. Intrusive or not?

    wow give yourself a break. you had a normal reaction to seeing someone, so what if she was 17 or 18 its an easy mistake to make..... they can easily look older at first glance. for example i sometimes cant tell the difference between someone who is 17 or 30....no need to be so hard on yourself
  4. do i tell a girl im seeing about my pure o?

    i'd be open with her. given her history i'm sure shes sympathetic to mental health issues. you dont even need to go into the themes if you don't want to, just say that you've had a variety of subjects that you obsess about and have bothered you in the past.
  5. Is this really silly?

    I would suggest that you think about what would you say to someone else who was in your shoes. the chances of your dog swallowing something in this situation is so minimal. move on.
  6. What now!

    because whats a thought - can you touch it, feel it, smell it? no it only exists in your mind and is not reality
  7. What now!

    yep just ignore it and do something else
  8. What now!

    by burying your self in something else
  9. What now!

    I guess you are trying to predict how you might feel if something happens, i suggest letting things take their course and see what happens. stop worrying about the future and live in the moment.
  10. Please help

    No all thoughts aren't true. Many are just mental gobildigook. Thoughts are just thoughts.
  11. Avo, i feel for you. that must be really tough to deal with. I cant offer s huge amount of advice to you except to say its something you are clearly bothered by which tells its own story. Erections can occur for any number of reasons and the groinal response is well documented in OCD. i know its scary but trust in the fact that it bothers you enough to write to an ocd forum...
  12. I'm beyond help

    Hi Don't know. i can empathise with what you are going thru as i've had the same OCD theme. Its really tough i know as it feels like your whole world has been turned upside down. Unfortunately noone can tell you your sexual orientation other than you. but ask yourself this, did you ever fancy anyone before all this started, any crushes at all? What turns you on sexually with any self pleasure, thats you orientation right there. but what you have to do is to a certain degree give up the ghost of solving this problem and live your life the way you want to live it there are no hard and fast rules when it comes down to who you spend your time with. if you wanna be straight, just live a straight life in spite of your doubts. there is no need to do anything. i speak from experience of someone who was convinved they were gay, came out to all my friends and all but couldnt understand it when i still managed to, and only really ever have been, get aroused by women.
  13. I am so fed up

    go and enjoy your weekend and drink if you feel like it. the answer is not black and white and medical advice will always err on the side of caution. but how many people have gotten pregnant when under the influence and it has not caused them any problems. the human body is an amazing thing for what it can withstand, i think you should go and do what you want this weekend......
  14. Avoiding compulsions

    Thanks lish. I appreciate your comments and support.
  15. Avoiding compulsions

    Thanks lish. Feeling a general unease that I can't quite put my finger on what's wrong but decided to take the leap of faith and put the effort into not providing myself with reassurance and compulsions. Taking the risk that I may never know for sure for 100% what my sexuality is.
