Getting hit hard. These times get rarer and rarer, but they still suck. :(

Tell someone you love them today, for Life is short. But scream it at them in Klingon, for Life is also terrifying and confusing.

Does anyone with HOCD or POCD notice that porn watching of any kind seems to cause groinal responses to triggers to be stronger afterwards for a while?

Can this even be OCD if symptoms haven't subsided in months?

Especially without proper treatment?

Because I feel less and less like I'm dealing with OCD as the days go by and I do not know why when others say it's pretty likely I have OCD.

That's all part of it. I'm feeling the same way. You were really confident that you had it from the start right? and you felt relieved when you discovered it, right?

I was fairly confident that I had somewhat of a porn problem and HOCD at the start or so I thought. But I've questioned when xyz started happening that I was in a tailspin trying to figure out which answer was right too of course. The relief only lasted so long then it diminished.

@Otter ?

I'm sorry jdd, I don't really know the context of what is happening. Could you give me the general outline? Is this about the swaying intesnity of HOCD?

****

Meanwhile, my own battle with OCD is an amazing thing to witness, so to speak. I have come along after years of having a "relationship" with my anxiety, that I can actually stand outside of myself and watch the battle.

For me it is a battle of ignoring, and replacement. It works...

1. The first thing to do, is to not dwell on the "theme" I am going through - to not develop compulsions that react to the obsession. This is the ignoring process (fight)

2. To remain active. This the replacement act - to replace the time spent trying to ignore (a contradiction, in a way), with positive activity. I exercise, I do thing that need to be done, etc. By the end of the day I am feeling better because I know at least the OCD didn't stop me from doing things. Even if it isn't a perfect victory, I am less anxious.

Yea, that's what I'm wondering about. For a while I thought I could see it sort of going away earlier on but now I don't know if I have it at all because from the sounds of it for OCD to be genuinely there, symptoms must subside at times when not anxious? Am I just anxious about it all the time so it does not go away... I don't really get anxious about society finding out for the most part. Though I don't like to disclose my obsession and themes and specifics with most people. Because as you mention in "HOCD is a nightmare", you say that society related anxiety usually comes from opening up to people which I have no problem with more or less but I don't like talking about my theme to lots of people because I think they'll just go straight to that thought or assuming. As I myself have a difficult time with assuming people understand me right away without clarification sometimes more than once.
