It sounds like you were having a panic attack when you wrote these posts. First, I know this isn't going to help right away, but you are doing this to yourself, it's not being done to you. I'm not a big believer in labeling oneself OCD because of thinking you're gay. That's a phobia. And phobias are really hard to deal with, but they are dealt with differently than OCD. But both are caused by the way we think. When you get into therapy the therapist will hopefully be a good one and show you this. It's simple and devilishly difficult, but if you stop thinking anxious thoughts you won't be anxious. So second, don't give yourself a label, it will define you. Third, if you are having this bad a time, and maybe you were having a really bad moment but you're not this bad all the time, but if you are, you need intervention now. When you say you're suicidal we don't know if you're actually suicidal or just saying it to express how bad you're feeling, but if you really are you need to get help now, not later. You'll also need help later, but we have to take you at your word unless you say otherwise. There are crisis hot lines and emergency rooms if you really feel you're that down about this. Now, about your thoughts. A lot of us go through this and most of us do it at a young age and many after a break-up. You are obviously a highly sexualized person, which is fine, but you also seem to be obsessed with the sex act. You're young, I get it, sex is new and exciting but it's just something we do and then when the act is over we go on with out lives. The relationships are far more important. You've gotten deeply into the act and at a very young age when it's hard to process. Sexuality isn't understood by anyone. Your boyfriend is a guy, and guys and women really don't usually think of sex the same way especially when they're young. Nor do relationships between young people usually last, and you must know that, you must see it in your friends, so again, you seem to have an obsession with attachment going on here. When we do that, it's usually due to some underlying insecurity, and you could do well to look into yourself and see where that might come from. Your therapist when you get going will help with that. As for panicking over being gay, it happened to me, and I'm a guy, when I was young after a bad breakup. A therapist I saw twice told me it was normal and I forgot about it. But the panic is because of bias against gay people. When I was young, this was endemic, but it isn't now. But you wouldn't be so upset by the possibility if you didn't think being gay was a bad thing even if you personally don't have anything against gay people. It's burrowed deep into our society. It wasn't always that way, most ancient civilizations were bisexual. It is how we are now, though. Even now. But as you know from other parts of your life, actions speak louder than words, and all your actions are heterosexual. You can worry about being bisexual or gay when you start acting that way, but you don't. So far this is just anxious thinking because you've convinced yourself when things didn't go just so and because you have a healthy sexual appetite which we also have a societal taboo against when it comes to women especially that something was wrong with you. There's no accounting for what turns us on. You can be married to someone for fifty years and still not know what turns your partner on. It's not something most people, especially women, talk about. Now, young men, they're enduring a testosterone storm and are always thinking about sex. Women are more complex. You are complex. You like porn, which as a guy I have to tell you just for me makes sex look like something completely unlike anything I've ever actually done or wanted to do. But that's me, and lots of people like porn and it's more available now because of the internet than it's ever been before. But you know, being turned on is fun. It feels good. It's not a curse. Looking a lesbian sex turns men on, too, but they don't want to be lesbians. It's just exciting because women are just sexier to look at than men are. Men are kind of straight up and down when they look good, but women are mysterious with all sorts of interesting curves. They're just more pleasant to look at. But yet you are turned on by men in your actual life. So stop punishing yourself. You are who you are and you will be who you develop into being. It'll be okay any way it turns out. What isn't okay is your obsession and negative thinking and panic. You have to focus on that and work on that, it's more important for now than who you're dating or who you want to have sex with. And again, if you're truly this desperately incapable of functioning as you sound, get help now. Peace.
I even keep looking for numbers on the clock like 1111 and 4444 and I get so scared when I see them because I don’t want them to confirm anything
If I could choose between bringing my dad back from the grave, and me being straight and never having these thoughts I would. I don’t even get aroused by these thoughts they’re so distressing they won’t leave me. GOD HELP ME PLEASE
Please help me someone I don’t want to be gay, this isn’t me, this isn’t what I want to be! I want to be with my boyfriend, I’m going insane I can’t stop looking for reassurance, I need help I’m sick in the head. I can’t even look at my female teachers or be around anyone, not even my 3 year old baby sister man I CANT EVEN BE AROUND PEOPLE I LOVE. If I’m gay im ending this, I was happy being straight before, I wish I never came across porn and being aroused by it. Why god why god why. It was funny because before this I was worrying for months and was petrified me and my boyfriend wouodnt last because I was scared he was going to cheat and now it’s this.
