Troubling thoughts, what do you think? help needed

Discussion in 'Problematic Sexual Behavior' started by Apollo093, Mar 7, 2021.

  1. Hi there, at the moment I'm quite far in my nofap journey but over the last few days I've started to have troubling thoughts that I know aren't me and I need some input from the community.

    Basically all this episode stems from the fear of being sexually attracted to children, and the anxiety and fear that all causes. I've had thoughts like "Am I a pedophile?" even though I know I'm not really, but its all very confusing, the fear is so real and the fear of the conquences about talking about it to anyone.

    I've been reading on the forums and what I have taken away is that time is the best healer, detox from PMO and artificial sexual stimulation (which I've been doing), and that the actual fear or anxiety itself can almost be eroticized because of the messed up things porn does to the brain, but once again time is the best healer and noticing who I'm ACTUALLY attracted to in real like helps.

    Final questions;
    1. What do you think about all this, how should I proceed?
    2. I've been considering discussing this with my psychologist but I've been worried that I'd be reported for being a danger to children (it's silly because I know they're just thoughts and part of recovery but still)-Is this a good or bad idea?

    Maybe OCD?
    People who suffer from HOCD have the same symptoms like you.
    In your case it could be POCD.
    Do sole research and compare the symptoms
