HOCD, loss of attraction

Postby Maxafau » Wed May 13, 2020 10:38 am

Hello everyone.

Three years ago, I was affected by a classic HOCD. Intrusive thoughts, constant anxiety, fear of being in denial/becoming gay, and all that kind of stuff. I managed to get through it on my own, in about a year. Everything got better for about two weeks, and then, overnight, I lost my ability to find women beautiful (my aesthetic attraction). The anxiety was very low and even disappeared, but nothing came back in two years... I think about it, hope it will come back and look a images of girls everyday. I know those things are compulsions and I have to stop it but, apart from this, what can I do to make my aesthetic attraction to women back fully, like in the past ?

I'm really afraid that because of the length of time I've lost my aesthetic attraction due to HOCD, it won't fully return, is that possible ?
How do I get my aesthetic attraction to women back to the way it was before?

I'm really afraid it's never going to go back to the way it was before...
Please, help me.
