But I can’t shake the sense that Buddhism is “correct” and anything I do besides it is “wrong”. Truthfully I don’t really care much about the teachings or what they claim, but the fear of living a lie or being wrong is so great that it keeps drawing me back to this stuff even though deep down I don’t want to. It’s like I’m hostage in my own body.
Have you sought professional treatment for your pattern of unhealthy obsessive thought behavior?

Start there and put your time and energy to achieving healthier outcomes.
