Do not worry. You are definitely not alone as I have OCD and suffered in the past from this, too, when I entered relationships. The OCD would bring up things (thoughts or images) that I would never want to have in my head, nor imagine! It did make it hard for me to concentrate, but I dont think I ever told any love interest at the time was only 17 when it started. It made it harder, the worry, and trying to get the OCD thoughts out of my head. But the OCD has never ruined a rltnship for me, I'm now 22 and my husband understands. Don't let it get the best of you please!
OCD seems to have a tendency to know when you are feeling happy and then tries to do its damage to bring you down.
Have you tried seeing a psychologist for cognitive behavior therapy and/or a psychiatrist (for medications if you are interested), as your brain chemicals are most likely off and meds can help this.
Do not feels bad as OCD is NOT you, and the feelings you feel are the "OCD monster," they are not your feelings, it helps to know this.
Are you very stressed?-- because it tends to flare up in times of stress, most likely your new relationship. Once you know this woman very well, you should be able to tell her about the anxiety disorder you have, if you want to. I'm not sure how old you are, but if you are young the woman may not be old enough to understand these disorders. It is hard to tell without all of the information.
OCD can be a rollercoaster at times. But, you will definitely feel better soon, but remember to try to get a hold of it soon so it doesn't get more severe.
I am now married, and I do not get obsessions when it comes to my relationship, but I stille have other OCD problems. My husband understands my OCD and helps me when I have relapses. What kinds of obsessions and/or compulsions do you have?-If you tell me I may be able to help more.
Just remember it is not you and you can fight it. Try not to overanalyze the thoughts and worry about why the thought came up, it is NOT your thought. I know this is easier said than done. But pls e-mail me back if you would like more help.
Take care and God Bless
