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?
