Ahhh, your first thread. Way to go and put yourself out there. OCD... I have family members that have certain compulsions. One is hand washing. It is
hidden from view. If I didn't know the person so well, I wouldn't know it. But her son is doing it now. He's eight. He doesn't try to hide it yet.
I know that he gets it from her. So is it learned behavior. From someone close? In this case.
I think that trying to hide the disorder is different than other forms of OCD. Like chewing fingernails for instance. You can't hide that. So one is
a bad habit and the other a learned behavior. One is copied or "trained", the other anxiety driven.
