Highlights: ROCD (Obsessive Compulsive Relationship Disorder) is a type of OCD. It involves frequent, distressing obsessions / doubts about one's feelings toward their partner or the "rightness" of the relationship. The doctor recommends treatment and journaling, and says seeing your thoughts on the page may ease some of the internal compulsive questioning. "It can be burdensome and exhausting, but you can have loving and satisfying relationships without certainty," says Courtney Parr, a Rhode Island physician who specializes in anxiety.


Do you think your relationship is in bad shape? Maybe you have a very specific and niche type of OCD. It's called AR OCD, and it's proof that love is really complicated

If you're one of those people who constantly question different aspects of their relationship even though there's nothing to worry about? So that's it, there's no need to make an effort anymore, now Gazlight has been laundered by the global sector of mental and behavioral sciences, and has been rebranded.

Now, for example, if someone suspects her husband of cheating on her, he shouldn't bother making her look and feel "just hysterical" because the scientific community did it for him. Recently, a new and even common syndrome has been "discovered", called rOCD (OCD), but of relationships. Very specific like that. "I'm not a traitor—you're just sick and crazy."

This is a so-called medical diagnosis of a situation in which someone suffers from disturbing thoughts, especially in romantic contexts, and the sufferer is consumed with fears and doubts about his relationship. In other words, there's not much chance that the relationship is actually crappy (which let's face it) – it's more likely that the other party suffers from a mental syndrome that now has a name too.

"Obsessive Compulsive Relationship Disorder (rOCD) is a type" of OCD. People with rOCD may experience intrusive thoughts, fears, and anxiety about whether their partner is right for them, whether they are attracted to their partner or if their partner is attracted to them, and it is highly doubtful whether they should end their relationship," Courtney Parr, a Rhode Island physician who specializes in anxiety, explains
on TikTok. In the video, Farr shares the questions that plague sufferers during a bout of the syndrome:

"What if I'm not really in love with my partner?", "What if he doesn't really love me?", "Maybe he's cheating on me?", Other questions that hurt rOCD sufferers include "What if I lose someone else when I'm with my partner?" and "Do I miss him enough when I'm not with him?"

Viewers of Parr's video, of course, were immediately convinced that they too suffer from this excellent syndrome and reacted with emotion:
"Oh my God, you just changed my life," said one. "I have rOCD and it happened even though my partner is absolutely amazing and I felt like such a bad friend."

"It's hell literally, because I know I love him so much and I would do anything for him but these thoughts eat me alive," another agreed.

"I thought I was alone in this feeling and I was wrong. Thank you for providing me with comfort and reassurance," said a third.

But don't worry, Farr says there are ways to help manage — and even overcome — rOCD. The doctor recommends treatment and journaling, and says seeing your thoughts on the page may ease some of the internal compulsive questioning.
Communicating with your partner can also be helpful, but because no relationship is without uncertainty, it's something an OCD patient must come to terms with. "It can be burdensome and exhausting, but you can have loving and satisfying relationships without certainty," she concludes.

Sheee is sure she has a syndrome that makes her think everyone else is stupid, and has her fingers crossed that she will be discovered
