Customer Question

I have OCD which means I have obsessive thoughts about people and intrusive thoughts of worry. I have an infatuation with one of my sons past teachers. I don't class myself as gay, yet I keep obsessing about being close with her. Last night I had a dream that my infatuation caught my friend in a carpark and kissed her. In my dream I felt out rageously jealous. Why would I dream about my friend and the teacher?? It's really confused me.

Dear JA customer,sorry to hear about your problem. I would recommend you to keep a regular appointment with a psychiatrist to help resolve internal conflicts and obsessions.there are several behavioral and pharmacological treatments available, such as exposure and response prevention, SSRI, clomipramine etc. But you need to set up a regular follow up appointment with a psychiatrist. this is fairly common to have these kind of thoughts and behaviorla therpay ususally works in few weeks.i hope this helps
