    Hi! No worries about posting, friend. :) Sometimes it helps a lot to get some advice from fellow patients. 1. I had HOCD too. I once had a panic attack because I thought a woman looked cute. But let me tell you this, from a rational POV: girls can be pretty and cute.

    @BM5, ERP might be tricky indeed. Do you get panic attacks or strong anxiety when you are almost falling asleep? You could try to expose yourself to your fear by taking naps during the day? I hate anaesthesia too! I can relate so much, ugh. I also have intense anxiety of fainting.

    Hi! For me, my diagnosis helped me a big deal. Finally there was a definition for all I went through. I'm also taking fluoxetine :) it did help, I felt less attached to my thoughts and the frequency decreased. Yes, you can definitely have OCD without (obvious) compulsions.
