LOS ANGELES (CBS Local) – If you are obsessed with taking selfies, then chances are you might be suffering from selfitis, according to a recent study.

The new study, published in the International Journal of Mental Health and Addiction, says it’s a genuine mental condition that makes a person feel compelled to constantly take photos and post them on social media.

Here are some ways you can tell if you have the disorder:

  • Taking a selfie puts you in a good mood;
  • You feel more popular when you post selfies on social media; and
  • You use photo editing tools to make your selfies look better than others.
