Obsessive Thoughts or Sexual Attraction?


Recommended Posts

Humans are fascinating. And we're easily fascinated, and curious about others, and sometimes obsessive. All of those things could easily provide the interest you're showing in children.

Here's my suggestion: make sure the obsessional thinking is being thoroughly treated first, and then make a fresh decision. You seem to know that "testing" during an obsessional peak period isn't very useful in convincing you, and generally doesn't convince anyone who obsesses. It just gives you new things to doubt; it's the thinking process involved in doubting that's over-active in the first place.

Are you on any medications? Perhaps they need to be adjusted as you get older (such things often do.) Have had, or are you in, some kind of talk therapy? That would be a safe place to explore your thoughts out loud with someone who isn't going to judge you.
