      Hi Ak91,

      Sorry to hear about your struggles in your mind. I’m afraid I can’t help you too much with your predicament unfortunately, but I wanted to let you know that I too find my self in the exact same situation as yourself. I know I have OCD already and have been with a partner for a long time and moved in together and I too have these doubts you have mentioned above. I have problems around whether I find her attractive anymore, if I find anyone attractive anymore, if I’d be happier on my own and taking some time to be myself and ‘find myself’ as they say as I feel really lost. But I do the same things as you and check and compare – these are standard OCD type behaviours, but because you do this doesn’t necessarily  mean OCD… so I too find myself questioning, am I happy? Should I let her go? Or is this all on my mind and my deteriorating mental health? Do you find this is where you are as well?

      I should mention I have had depression and things in the past but I’ve been this way for a little over a year now.

      Id like to learn more about your situation in hope we can try resolve our issues since they are on similar wavelengths and maybe we can help each other out!

      Hope you find your answers and can be happy regardless!
