    Post Obsessions about Mental Illnes?


    Can anyone relate? I have had these obsessions for years... I am convinced that I have bi-polar and I have also had the gay obsession as well... It sucks.. I have had these obsessions for over 14 years. I take medication. But it seems when there is something real in my life I don't want to face or something that stresses me out these obsessions take place. My dr's have all told me in the past they don't think I am gay or have such a mental illness as bi-polar, but I can't help this and half the time I feel "nuts" for not knowing what is real in my life. !!! Can anyone relate? Thanks in advance

    hmmm, weird, for a while i was really obsessed with being bi-polar but it is more like i "wanted" to have it, it so nicely explained a lot of things I was feeling and would be an ientity to hold on to... Your case sounds very ifferent though, more like you're afraid you might have something. maybe a question to ask yourself, what are you most afraid of if you indeed WERE gay or bi-polar? (Don't wworry I am not saying you are! I am pretty convinced that you are not!!! Just a rhetorical question to ask yourself.)

    Hi Kathrin,

    That is funny that you asked that because one of my many counselors asked me the same thing.... I don't know either.. I have experienced somethings like kissing the same sex and i wasn't affraid of it then, in fact it really didn't do much for me, but for some reason both of these obsessions are really very scarry to me.... thanks for replying...
