I have been fighting HOCD for almost 20 years. I am a 37
I have been fighting HOCD for almost 20 years. I am a 37 years old female and still not sure if this is OCD or my true identity. I have a very strong gronial response for certain females including family members exp my sister in low and whenever I see her I've got this groinal response almost automatically. I have a family which is even more difficult. I had bullimia when I was a teenager and I was always obsessed with the way I looked. As a young girl I was always attractive o to boys and I had a boyfriend when I was 17years old but I was constantly questioning if I was in love with him and also I wasn't sure If I was attractive to him but emotionally I loved him. Then when I was 19 years old suddenly it happened to me and I have developed this strong feeling and sensations towards female and I was extremely depressed to the point that I self harmed myself as I could accept the fact that suddenly I was a lesbian. I had lots of conversations with my family my mum dad brother and friends about it and they were all reassuring me that I was normal. I went to see psychologist and they prescribed me some medication. … read more

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
