      Hi there

      i have developed a nervous habit of glancing at women’s breasts when I’m talking to them. It’s not bc I’m lesbian as I’m straight but it’s really upsetting me as I’m sure it must be noticeable. I feel v uncomfortable when I’m talking to women and force myself to look at their eyes instead but I’m sure my eyes glance downwards.

      I started back at work yesterday after finishing maternity leave and my day was ruined by this.


      is it OCD? How can I overcome it?

      id love some advice.
