does anyone else have a chronic fear of bodily fluids? like blood, snot, eye liquid, spit, discharge, sweat, etc. i can’t even kiss my girlfriend because of it without being disgusted and panicking and i don’t want her thinking i’m disgusted with her, but i also don’t know how to bring it up. it has also affected my sex life and i can’t imagine “going down” because of it either.

      I have contamination ocd and I am a hopeless romantic, so I really want to kiss my partner, but I get scared of it bc of my ocd.

      Do you know what you fear exactly? I have diferent theme ocd than you but can relate how it is disruptive.

      SO MUCH YES. When I was married to my wife, my sex life was greatly affected bc of this fear. We got together as my OCD and anxiety were getting really bad. So we adapted as we go older bc we were together from 18-26 years old. I'm divorced (and 30) now and I have no idea how I will ever be intimate with another person again. These fears are so disruptive to relationships!

          @figgypop Does she know about your OCD? Bc you could start with that, mentioning that your OCD affects your life a lot of ways. That you know these things so are irrational. And then you could talk about this fear and why it bothers you and how it affects you day to day. I guess I would just start from a place of sharing those type of things. Maybe share another. Fear you have. And that way she is aware that these don't make sense but that they still have a great effect on you.nonetheless and you need more details, plus. And sharing more might be a thing would probs be helpful.so she can begin to see how other rings might affect you differently. I I can help at all, fee free to DM me, my inbox is always open 🙃
