Hi and yes I think it is normal to recognize anyone is cute and it can be an alarming idea to anyone with ocd or make someone develop it. But you are ok, you already are taking into consideration you prefer adult women but just feel bad.

I am going through the same. I could at this point still just live normally and no one would know. The best we can do is just know we acknowledge it, not put ourselves in doubt again and never do anything we can’t handle afterwards.

It may help from now on to leave to another place, and bring a planner maybe, take small notes of what you are doing, where you are and what time to help you stop the doubts. Also take an item of proof.

This clearly sounds to me like ocd. Similar to those who fear they hit someone with a car and even drive back where they were and call hospitals. Just your fear alone is proof this is not something you would have done.

Yeah I heard about that scene in IT. Stephen King is getting by ok and he actually imagined, wrote and published it and thought nothing morally wrong about it. But I even thought how that could be triggering with people with ocd.

I find it helps to say “I don’t care ocd” or “whatever stupid thought, I know it’s not what I want”

I came back to see how you were doing, hoped you were okay. I really mean that too, I actually don’t think anyone else would think it was anything about it.

I’m sorry you are bothered by this. It was a harmless action and though I know you worry—It actually just sounds like just felt like showing more affection to your cat, but the ocd made you think it must have been another reason.

I know this is an old post. I hope you’d start to feel better by my reply that, or that others who find this feel better—you did not ask for ocd and what you did while you were suffering was NOT really a wrong nor even had true meaning behind it.
