obsessive phases

hello all

i am hoping somebody knows something about this kind behaviour.

i become obsessed with anything and everything.
at this moment in time, i am obsessed with finding out about this kind of obsessive behaviour.

during an obsessive phase, whenever i have a moment to think, i am thinking about whatever i am currently obsessed about.
i have GAD, and i think if i didn't have that, i would be alot more obsessed. obviously with GAD, alot of the time my mind is just worrying.

i never just had free time in my mind. it's either worrying, or obsessed!

cats, tea bags, cups, cat food, community treatment team, the news, science.
i also become obsessed with foods, i'll only eat a certain brand and flavour of crisps for a while. if i was to get something from the shop, i always buy the thing i'm currently obsessed with. it's the same with all food. potatoes, butter etc. i will only shop at asda.
plants, washing powders, softners, games. anything!!

during these phases. i buy anything related to the things i would be obsessing over.
i have over 100 games for consoles when i only play one game. i have aload of airfreshners because i went through a phase of them.
i find it hard to part with some stuff. so hoarding is there!

i really want to know why? these obsessions practically rule my life.
everything i do is basically through an obsession!

i would be here for hours if i was to write every obsession.

Re: obsessive phases

I know how you feel. I have OCD myself. I have had this disorder since I was eleven years old. I have obsessions as well. I would obsess about my grades, my body, if I hurt someone's feelings, etc. When stress comes to play it can make it ten times worse! I'm currently on Celexa to help me with it and it has helped. I have been on a lot of different medications, but this has helped me. I used to see a therapist also. Are you on any medications? It can help you and also therapy. There really isn't any reason why people have obsessions other than their neurotransmitters and the way we process our thoughts. I hope this helped. Keep us updated!
