Default Re: Compulsive music listening

It COULD be a form of OCD, but it depends on several factors. Being a sufferer of OCD myself, I could probably help you figure it out.

1. Do you feel like something bad (an event, harm to a family member, just plainly- 'something bad'?) is going to happen if you don't listen to the song?
2. Do you repeat the song at intervals/ count beats in the melody obsessively?

On the other hand-

1. Are you able to pull yourself away from listening to the music or able to listen to another song without being very upset or worried?

These are a couple things that could help determine. It would help if you would be more specific on the obsessiveness. Possibly, though- the music is just your way of remembering and greiving for your grandma.
