I have what I believe is rOCD (Relationship Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). To give a little background: I've been dating someone who I truly feel is "the one" for about 4 months. A few weeks ago he moved in with me (I know you're probably thinking that sounds rushed and maybe it is-but it felt right) and last week was a rough one. I saw traits of myself come back that I thought I had overcame such as being clingy, needy and wanting constant reassurance that he loved me. Now, I feel a disconnect and am having some rOCD behavior that I've had in the past such as intrusive thoughts, anxiety and stress all centered around him. Since I've dealt with this behavior in the past I'm not having panic attacks as I have in the past because I at least recognize what I think it is but it's still making me miserable. Maybe the move triggered it? I've had some really bad ending relationships in the past two of which I lived with and it terrifies me. If anyone has experience with rOCD I would love feedback. If you're not familiar with it, it's something that I would likely experience no matter who my partner is. This time around I can at least for sure say that I KNOW I genuinely love him and want to be in the relationship. Thanks in advance.
