i dont know mates. my hocd is killing me. for example. when i was with a friend playing during a math class i was talking to him and my intrusive thoughts began stronger and kept telling me that i was gay and it was so powerful i was a bit reluctant or weak atthat moment but when i was home i gained myself back.this thing is starting to happen more often.WHAT SHOULD I DO???

Pay attention to class! Honestly, as much as it is somewhat meant to be funny, focusing on things that need focusing on, will help you a great deal

thx mate

Distraction! The more you think about something, the stronger and more overwhelming the thoughts become.

Keep talking to your friend despite the thoughts. I know it's hard but when l.was with friends and getting the thoughts. I told myself.just to let the thoughts come and try to focus on the conversation. Not easy l know but get better in time xxx
