  • Sexual Orientation OCD

Question... is this a compulsion? So even when I’m not anxious or triggered I still always look at / read HOCD posts. Ex... I’m just sitting on the couch and in my mind I’m like let me go read some posts from others with HOCD. Hoping that I am reassured because I relate to them & then I feel relieved when I do. I spend minutes / hours doing this everyday / every other day. Is this still a compulsion even tho there was no anxiety / trigger that caused me to go do it? Does anyone else find themselves doing this?

I was unsure bc I don’t have the anxiety / trigger before doing it - but the more I think about it I think I do it to avoid / reduce the triggers / anxiety

Yeah it’s a hidden compulsion. You think you are fine to go read them but really you’re looking for an answer.
