I really can’t say for sure if this is “normal” but I don’t believe you are alone. My main compulsions are ruminating and reassurance (plus avoidance 😬). They seem almost too subtle to be compulsions plus my main symptom is guilt instead of anxiety so I have been questioning my OCD diagnosis a lot lately!
Yeah! Like my constant obsessing and thinking about my thoughts I guess is the “compulsion” itself.
@Kdrizzy Ya that is the rumination! It’s super sneaky and I didn’t realize it was a compulsion until I started therapy. You aren’t alone! They call it “the doubting disease” for a reason.
