Hi I'm 18 and I have been suffering from HOCD for four months now. Before I have only be interested in men, only had crushes on men and wished to spend my future with men. I was recovering from past intrusive thoughts and I spiked, out of nowhere I started to believe I was an lesbian despite not having a single lesbian thought in the past. I know for certain I don't want a lesbian but my problem is that every girl is now increasingly prettier, I don't know if it's to do with a self esteem issue I had in the past, but I get scared when I see a girl who is pretty, sometimes I get groinal responses, I hate it so much. My attraction to men has diminished dramatically. I just want to stop noticing women, it's got to the point where I really dislike watching television or going out, sometimes I can't be around my own friends. I just want this to stop and my anxiety is so low right now, I know you can't suddenly change orientation but it feels like I have... How do I get over this?
