Hi Angela, thanks for your input. I would say my photo taking was rather obsessive for quite a while. Pictures certainly last longer than a quick look in a mirror and later you can take a better look on a larger screen. What I found interesting is that the obsession, or need isn’t very strong since I have been dressing more. It is a hassle to setup the camera and tripod, could it be just not wanting the hassle or no longer needing the validation? If your friends hadn’t pointed out your going overboard would you have throttled back on your own at some point?
