I've had OCD since I hit puberty, it was a tad more extreme then, now it's mostly germaphobia, and constantly worrying about my own health, with of course the certain routines I have to do every now and then so I don't go crazy haha. I also get random panic attacks here and there, they're pretty damn scary. I've had many relationships with men throughout my life, and I usually tend to end it after a month just because I got bored. I am currently in my longest relationship, which is going to be 1 year this Sunday! The problem is, this relationship isn't the MOST healthy. My boyfriend was raised by his mother and father, but his father had a lot of problems that my boyfriend was exposed to. He lies a lot, not even about important things! Just random things that make no sense to lie about! I always catch him and get mad, blah blah blah. He cheated on me once under the heavy influence of multiple substances, granted it was only kissing, it still hurt like hell. I broke up with him then eventually he got his act together and I gave him another shot. I have ridiculous obsessive thoughts about what happened that night, the girl (who was his bestfriend at the time, and is no longer even an acquaintance of his), and even the little lies he tells me that shouldn't even bother me that much! I'll think I'm over it, then boom, one day there I go asking a MILLION questions.. questions I've asked before and have gotten answers to already. But they pop into my head and I just HAVE to ask them or else I feel like I'm losing control. I strongly believe my OCD is making itself known in my relationship and I just want it to stop. I've helplessly searched for tips on the internet but everything's a stupid scam where they make you pay for this "help" and give you outrageous anxiety report results that make you think you're crazier than 90% of the population.. literally.. that's what my report said. I just want any and all tips and coping mechanisms that have helped you or a friend with anxiety, OCD, or anything along those lines. I want all the help I can get without popping pills and sitting on a therapist's couch.
