Hi everyone, 

Sometimes when I think about my sexuality I have the urge to just go on all social media and say I’m gay and then tell all my friends around me and everything and sometimes I worry that’s what makes me happy but honestly this has been going on for too long for me to think this is still OCD in my opinion.  

Also it seems like when I have trans OCD thoughts I can literally laugh and know that’s not true but when it’s HOCD I don’t believe it’s not true anymore.

Hey there

I have had issues with HOCD, too. And now I'm struggling a lot with the urge to confess my thoughts and actions to friends and family. So yes, this is pretty common, unfortunately.

And for some obsessions it can indeed be easier to let go of them (your trans OCD), while for others it feels more real. Especially many sufferers from HOCD mention that they are "feeling they are in denial". But this is only our OCD again. 

Wish you all the best!
