How could I have forgot this diagnosis given to me a fair few years ago?! It's having a sexual orientation or sexual attractions which go against one's idealized sexual orientation, causing severe anxiety and a desire to change one's sexual preferences, or repress them. Was diagnosed in 2008, and whilst I haven't officially been given the 'no you don't have this problem anymore' from a psychiatrist, I'm pretty sure I'm not bothered in the slightest about being a gay man anymore. Has anyone else ever been give this diagnosis or think they had/have it? I'd love to hear what you think about it. Personally, CBT helped a lot with this as well as making some new friends that did accept me for who I was.
