Unhappy rOCD ... (relationship OCD)

Hi ...

I definitely have been experiencing OCD for a long time ... I also suffer from anxiety and depression ... I also have had Epilepsy for almost my entire life ...

I think that I have rOCD ...

The largest rOCD problem that I have deals with my wife's weight and her looks ...

At this point, I have terrible thoughts about her mostly when we are in public ...

We really do have an absolutely tremendous relationship - except for my thoughts ...

Do I suffer from rOCD ?? ...

I really need to understand and agree that I do suffer from rOCD - and what happens, what I do, etc is not my fault ...

Can anyone let me know if my thoughts and actions are actual rOCD examples - or am I being unfair to her by "keeping" her in the marriage ?? ...

Do I have rOCD ?? ... Is what's happening not my own fault ?? ...

Re: rOCD ...

I had never heard of rOCD, don't know very much about OCD in general.

Sounds like it would be a good idea to talk to a good therapist about this.

It may be something that CBT (cognitive behaviorial therapy) would help.

Or maybe DBT (dialectical behavior therapy). Good luck.

So are you saying that these (presumably negative) thoughts about your wife's weight and her looks are not interfering in your intimate relations between the two of you, but only bother you when you are in public?

That does seem very unusual, and maybe a little unstable. Well worth seeking help for.
