Life Changes and Relationship Anxiety

I suddenly developed anxiety and doubts over my relationship and began asking myself whether or not I loved my partner, if this relationship was right, and if he was the one. I don't know why this is happening to me. Is this normal?

i have read your other posts about hiv anxiety and i think you have ocd, ocd can change its themes in your case it has changed from hiv to your relationship, i think you should consult a psychiatrist

So my obsessing over this is caused by something else? I have a lot going on right now and cannot focus.

I am always checking locks and paranoid they will be unlocked at night. I obsess over the smallest things and feel as if the world is ending. I just want these feelings gone. What do I do?

Buddy for treatment of ocd you need to consult a psychiatrist and psychologist, Medication and cognitive behavior therapy are the treatment of ocd. Without  treatment you are not going to get better and you situation will only get worse.

you already know it is ocd, but it has become a compulsion for you to ask others to reassure yourself, but reassurance don't help in ocd.

In ocd  themes keep on changing, so now your mind is focused on gay thoughts, it will keep on switching themes and troubling you until it gets in control, for me it took almost 5-6 months for complete recovery and i am still on medicine after 16 months with reduced dosage .

So keep working on therapy and have belief in your self .Victory will be yours.
