“I have lived with my partner for four years, and during that time they have been diagnosed with ROCD. It has been really tough at times, as they are constantly doubting our relationship and questioning whether they are really in love with me.
This has led to them breaking up with me several times, even though they always end up coming back. It’s been really tough trying to deal with their ROCD, as it feels like they are constantly doubting my love for them.
I have tried to be understanding and patient, but it can be really difficult when they are constantly questioning my feelings.
I know that they are just trying to make sure that they are really in love with me, but it can be really tough to deal with. I am really hoping that we can find a way to deal with their ROCD, as it is really taking a toll on our relationship.
I know that they are just trying to do what is best for them, but it is really hard to deal with. I am hoping that we can find a way to overcome this so that we can have a happy and healthy relationship.”

If you’re in a relationship with someone who suffers from ROCD (Relationship OCD), you know that it can be tough. Here are some tips for living with ROCD:
1. Communicate openly and honestly.
This is probably the most important thing you can do. If your partner is fixated on a certain thought or worry, be open to hearing about it. Don’t try to fix the problem, just listen and be supportive.
2. Be patient.
ROCD can be a very frustrating condition, both for the sufferer and the partner. It’s important to remember that your partner is not choosing to be this way, and they are likely doing the best they can.
3. Encourage your partner to seek professional help.
If the ROCD is severe, it may be necessary to seek professional help. This can be a difficult decision, but ultimately it may be the best thing for both of you.
4. Take care of yourself. It’s important to remember that you cannot control or fix your partner’s ROCD.
You can only control how you react to it. Make sure to take care of yourself emotionally and mentally, and don’t hesitate to reach out to friends or family for support.
