How do I get over HOCD/ stop worrying?

Hey :)
I'm nineteen years old and female, and I think I've been suffering from HOCD for about two years, but I keep worrying that I am actually lesbian. It all started when I had a strong urge to kiss a girl (one of my close friends) when I was seventeen. It was a fleeting moment, I didn't act on it and have never felt the same thing again. However, on and off I've been stressing about it ever since and at the moment it is making me absolutely miserable; it's all I can think about and I feel anxious, stressed, upset and tired all the time. I keep needing to "check" (making myself look at girls/ trying to fantasise about girls etc). I've always fancied guys and I like having boyfriends and I like having cute guys look at me ... but the feeling of wanting to kiss this girl was intense in a way that I have never experienced with a guy, although the thought of kissing a girl now kind of repulses me. Basically, what I want to know is, was it a significant moment? Did it mean anything? Could I be potentially lesbian? I am so scared that I will have the same thing happen again and then I will be forced into being lesbian. Please help!

Oh, this sounds tough. To be

Oh, this sounds tough. To be honest, the urge probably to kiss her wasn't probably that strong, OCD causes false memories as well and mixtures with the past.

I have HOCD as well, and I'm 14.

To be honest, everyone has urges and fleeting thoughts like that. For people without OCD they'd be like ''Oh, wow!'' and then forget about it because they know it doesn't mean anything.

You are straight. You have OCD.
