I normally don't have trouble with abstract thinking. It seems like my thinking becomes extremely black and white when I get an OCD obsession. My sexual orientation is an example. Before I obsessed about it I didn't really care about it. When I started obsessing about it I went absolutely crazy. I'm better now, but I still feel like sexual attraction is too much of an abstract concept to be meaningful for me. When I mention I don't label my sexuality people like to ask me if I'm attracted to men, women or both. That question drives me absolutely crazy. It means nothing to me. I can vaguely tell I'm attracted to women in some way, but I still have no clue about men. I hate OCD.

Sexual attraction is not abstract to me. It's a very concrete feeling.

Actually....I think it's best when it's not abstract.

I guess I'm weird. I've thought about possibly being asexual, but I think I'm way too sexually frustrated to be asexual. I have kind felt sexual attraction in dreams, but that involved touching people. Never have a chance to do that in real life.

You're not weird. You're just a human being. Human beings have sexual desires.

Have you applied to optician school yet?

If it's related to OCD you could try treating the OCD.

You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.
