Hi there.  Sorry...I am really the only one answering questions and cannot get on here as much as I would like some days.  

So the first thing I see is that you wrote "i had official counting pedophilia harming counting killing religous stuff ocd and never went to a therapist then i didnt know that its an ocd."  So I have to ask, have you been to a therapist since or a counselor or have internet searches led you to believe you have OCD?  

I obviously cannot diagnose you but just seeing that statement made me think you could indeed have OCD which in turn leads me to believe that this thought about possibly being atracted to the same sex is just another irrational thought.  People believe different things but my take on whether we are gay or not is based in our genetics.  We are born gay, bi or straight.  I'm not saying that gay people haven't ever dated the opposite sex because they do sometimes but that doesn't mean they don't know they are gay.  Maybe they don't want to be but deep down inside they know that the opposite sex just does not fulfill their needs.  

So ask yourself this.  If you said right now out loud "I'm gay and I like girls" would you then want to run out and find a girlfriend and do all the things associated with having a girlfriend?  If the answer is no, then how could you possibly be gay.  

Obviously you are struggling and the best thing for you to do is ask your parents to make an appointment with a psychologist for you.  If that is not an immediate option, then perhaps a school counselor could help you as well.  OCD does not go away.  What we do is we develop coping strategies as we go along which is what you must have done before if the self harm, etc have stopped.  As we get older, there is more and more stress placed on us and stress brings out irrational thinking for a person suffering from OCD.  This is the time to get the help you need because soon you will be off to university and more stress and it is best to learn to deal with these things now rather than later.  Trust me...I went through university with a whole heaping plate of irrational thoughts.  

In short, based on what you have written, I do not think you are gay or bi but rather someone suffering from irrational thinking. And just so you know, I don't care if somebody is gay or bi.  It makes no difference to me how people live their lives because it is their life to live so I am not saying you are not based on some sort of homophobic issue.  Let me know how it is going for you.

Thank you so much but testing myself whether i want or not is blurry even though at the beggining of the ocd I'd always answer it as NO can you read my comment under i wanna know what is it like ive been through another anxiety attack 2 hours before Itd be helping me so much

Read my post "Anatomy of a Horrific Thought in Pure O" and you will see why testing just makes things worse.  I will bump it up to the top of the forum.  You need to adopt the "whatever" attitude.  This helps you to take the fear out of the thought.  

When you have an anxiety attack do this breathing technique.  Take a deep breath in through your nose, hold it for five seconds and count this out in your head, then let it all out through your mouth.  It is good to practice laying down with your hands on your stomach but you can actually do this controlled breathing in any situation and nobody will even know you are doing it.  It helps get rid of the panic because more than likely you are hyperventilating when you panic (you can hyperventilate without realizing it).
