I’m scared. I have a lot going on right now and I don’t want to feel alone. I have ocd and rocd occurrences all the time. I always have unwanted thoughts about my boyfriend and our relationship. So, like I said I don’t want to feel alone, I want to feel loved and have someone support me. What’s scaring me is idk if it’s him I want around and supporting me or is it just I want someone in general. I don’t want to loose my boyfriend. I’ll feel sad without him. I know if I wasn’t with him things would get better at some point, but I don’t want to experience that I don’t want to loose my boyfriend. Are these all part of my unwanted thoughts?

yeah I get unwanted thoughts,
someone said yesterday try telling them to be quiet
which helped a bit
or sometimes it helps to write the thoughts out on a forum

as for your relationship you might be putting all your eggs in one basket !
something I always do myself in relationships

forgetting about other family and friends
its quite hard but I need to get back in touch with them
so that I have more of a network
not just relying on one boyfriend
to meet all my emotional needs

Yes they sound like they could be unwanted thoughts.
My mind does this when I am stressed. I have to remind myself that this is often a symptom. I tell myself that I will look into the thought more if it is still there in a weeks time.

Usually the unwanted thoughts have either gone by then or moved on to some other unwanted thought.
Which makes me glad that I didnt act on it impulsively. Which I have done many many times in the past.

thankyou, yes sometimes they go away
sometimes I need to write them out and share them
and this seems like a good place to do it
other times I need to get distracted from them :)
