Right, and as you can imagine this all fuels doubts further.

I'm not entirely convinced of stopping porn thing like you guys seem to suggest. I tried it once for a couple weeks. At first seemed like maybe improvements but not much and since I never got really into the gp too much. But I kinda figured there was a problem when I was watching it while I'm vacation and such. which is partly why therapist recommended the sexual health program but then also suggested trans program too because of the clothes thing and I never brought up feeling in the wrong body ever. :/ The clothes thing probably also fed into insecurities about myself.

And, I know that size isn't everything now but that's the thought process I remember growing up.

Anytime you want to talk in depth about the clothes or the persistent feeling you might be in denial.... not sure I really want to do it in OCD, but the clothes thing in Gender Identity Disorder, or the sexuality in Relationships --> Sexuality. I'll be happy to go further in those. I'd like to know what all you've gone thru with your therapist, and if in your checking you've done any tests with the T, or online. You remind me of me in some ways.

Checking & tests as far as what? I never took anything for tests regarding that. She just hinted that it would be a good idea to mention at the U. A pm might be better for now.

No I just mean tests and quizzes for sexuality and gender identity. I presumed you've researched things. I know I have. I know my cogiati, my bsri, my Flexuality, my Kinsey.....

Sexuality yes. Gender identity no. I always felt and still do feel like a male which is why I wasn't sure where she was going with that.

Yeah seems presumption on her part if you feel like a male. Google the cogiati. I'm a fetishistic transvestite according to it. (At one time I wondered if I was trans. Okay, I'd still like to have boobies. But I'm not trans.)

So, before i take the test at a more decent time, how reliable or accurate are they compared to sexuality quizzes?

Seeing as we know lots of the sexuality quizzes are not very depending on where you go. Though mine were mostly favorable unless I wasn't reading the directions and in state of panic already.

Well the COGIATI was designed specifically for MtF transsexuals, but it will also rate levels of gender identity below full blown transsexual. I mean, I haven't xdressed in a long long time, but temperamentally I'm an autogynephiliac fetishistic transvestite, according to it.

It's not without its controversies and detractors. Eg., there's IIRC a lot of ppl out there that poopoo autogynephilia and I don't know why, it'd be HOT to be a chick. I wish I WERE one. Just not enough to cut off my wing wang.

The BSRI is considered sort of dated, as it was first conceived in the 1970s. Possibly more accurate for an old codger like me, than for the X Gen & the Millenials. I usually score pretty feminine on that.

As far as sexuality quizzes if you've not taken the Flexuality, that's a good one. Written by a psychiatrist. But he firmly believes nearly everyone is bisexual and frankly admits it's purposely hard to score significantly 'pure' on either end of the spectrum. But it provides a sort of bell curve that I like. I like to take it and the Bem Sex Role Inventory at regular intervals to track how I change over time.

As an aside, that link of Love Shy guys, in Gilmartin's book there is a bit on the concept of the 'male lesbian' that I find fascinating. If I weren't not completely straight and didn't think of myself as someone androgynous, or bi-gendered, then I would fit this quite well, I think. As it is I can saavy it, even though I don't feel as if I quite fit in that mold.

Feeling awful today. Noticed that the spikes are becoming less bombastic...er...like huge crisis like the word is gonna blow up...sorry couldnt think of the word to use. Anyway theyre becoming more subtle, like trying to make it so I won't notice, but believe me, I do. And the not becoming as anxious makes it all the worse. It's like I don't even care anymore what it does one way or another, and like I'm just making myself worry and lying to myself. But I'm not! I swear I'm not! IF all of these things were true then why the hell would I have had constant panic attacks, felt like I was gonna throw up all the time, and almost went suicidal when it first started huh???

....I just...I feel like crying...

Refresh our memory, hon. What flavor of OCD are we referring to?
