I always thought I was just abnormal and the only one that had this problem.
As a child I would always tell my parents when I did something wrong. I didnt know why I had to, I just knew if I didn’t I would get no peace.
I survived a long time without thinking about it when I got older I told myself I didnt have to confess because I am older and can do whatever I want and keep It a secret.
This caused me to go down a dark path. I did whatever I wanted and kept It a secret and It didn’t bother me.
But now i have A fiancé and I’m cleaning up my life and the compulsions are back. I feel Like I have to tell him anything and everything that comes to mind. Some things that are just crazy suck like picking my nose or my hand dirty.
I am trying to tell myself that there are certain things that can be kept personal and they don’t have to be “confessed”. But I am truly struggling with It.
Anybody else have a similar issue?
