What's New in relationship OCD

is tearing me apart

He just doesn't get it. Relationship ocd is confusing. My mind constantly comes up with doubts of our relationship. Then he gets upset, I become angry, then I overcorrect. Fine, I just won't care at all then. Maybe all this isn't worth the hassle. I've broken up with him over 15 times in the last 3 years. He knows its a cycle but he just doesn't understand how my brain tortures me. Sometimes for hours, interrupting my work and life. He also deserves better than this.

Ocd Poem By Ocd Hacks

OCD, a demon in my head,
Compelling me to check and dread.
Washing hands till they are raw,
Counting steps until I'm in awe.

It's a constant battle in my mind,
A never-ending loop that's unkind.
A prisoner to routines I must repeat,
Afraid of the consequences I might meet.

An obsession that's irrational,
A compulsion that's uncontrollable.
It's a vicious cycle that never ends,
A cycle that my mind defends.

But I won't let it consume me,
I'll fight back until I'm free.
I'll face my fears with all my might,
And conquer OCD, the demon in my sight.

So I'll take a deep breath and take a step,
And leave the OCD, my constant fret.
I'll break free from its vicious hold,
And live a life that's brave and bold.

“Like you’d run from the law.”#Anxiety #Depression #relationship

As trying as all these things have been...
I love him. I do. And I have never loved someone like this. And I know he loves me. And no one has ever loved me or taken care of me, looked out for me the way he does. And so these are the things I’ll hold onto. When I have doubts and the sinking feeling starts, I will not get hopeless. I will remind myself of the way he looks at me.
The way his hand feels intertwined with mine. Protective.
I will remind myself of how his arms feel around me, strong and supportive and unbreakable.
I will remind myself of how he listens to me, patient, understanding and without judgement.
I will remind myself of how he thinks of me, even in the smallest ways, bringing me my favorite candy or snack food just because.
I will remind myself of the way he makes me laugh. Big, whole belly laughs.
I will remind myself how loyal he is to me. Unwavering.
I will remind myself of the man that he is. True and authentic.
I will remind myself to trust his words when he says that I am not alone. That he is with me every step of the way.
And I will remind myself that though they are his family, he is who he is and our relationship is OURS. Beautiful and full of potential.

Because I love him.
Because I want him.
Because I want to be with him.
I want to grow with him.
I want to laugh with him.
I want to run with him.

“Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you.”

I feel guilty about leaving him

Me and my ex have been broken up for about 8 months now. He’s came back to me 5 times telling me he misses me and wants me back. Each time I gently say no because I know it’s for the best. I’ve already blocked him, but the guilt is actually eating me alive. He’s made me feel horrible for not taking him back, even though I know if I continued the #Relationships it wouldn’t be good in the long run. The guilt is terrible right now and I feel like a horrible person. #RelationshipOCD #Guilt #Ex #Breakups


How do you let go of a toxic person when your OCD and depression keeps pulling them back in? #Depression #Anxiety #OCD #RelationshipOCD #Toxic

I keep going through this toxic cycle in dating. I become interested in someone that I think I know and trust after being friends for at least a year. We start talking and they genuinely seem interested, then they drop off the face of the planet. This just happened today and I don't know how to move on quickly because my OCD keeps awful thoughts running through my head. I feel like I did something wrong and that I will never find someone that truly loves me. I think I'm over them until a few days later something happens where I think we could make it work. How do I totally let go?


Relationship insecurities #RelationshipOCD #Insecure

Why am I still anxious and sad after having phone and text conversations with my SO where nothing negative or relationship-ending is even talked about? I'm so scared she'll see ugliness inside.

What is something you can unpack ?

There are so many thoughts that we often carry with us and weigh us down. What are some of the things you can let go of to allow yourself to move a bit easier? #MentalHealth #RelationshipOCD #OCDTips #Anxiety #Depression #EmotionalHealth


After an explosive anger episode, do you ever think you don’t love your spouse? #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #RelationshipOCD

If my husband and I ever get in a big argument, afterward I always question whether or not I love him. Surely if I love him, I would be angry at him all the time? He is such a good, loving, patient person.
