Re: Relationship help....VERY SAD...Having HORRIBLE THOUGHTS
Your symptoms are very typical of OCD. People with OCD tend to over analyze and place way too much importance on random thoughts that pop into their head on a day-to-day basis. While a person who does not suffer from OCD likely has these same types of thoughts from time to time as well, they do not place importance on them. When you constantly dwell on these thoughts, it keeps them in the front of your mind and makes you think that maybe they do have some sort of meaning and aren't just random thoughts. Also, when you have to confess the thoughts to your boyfriend, you are probably just wanting reassurance from him and for him to help you not feel guilty. This is something you should try to avoid, as reassurance will only make it worse in the long run. You need to get to a point where you can quickly recognize these thoughts as OCD and not place any importance or value on them. Once you can do that, you will have no reason to dwell on them.
