Have You Ever Gotten Obsessed with Something and how do you stop?

Okay here is the deal ever since I was little kid I have been prone to getting obsessed with things like celebrities, politics etc. Not in creepy stalkerish way or anything lol but just I spend too much time thinking about it and it effects my mood.

I am getting mental health treatment for long standing illness but no ones giving me any practical advice on how to stop this particular behavior though I have brought it up.

Lately it's been talking about a TV show on Twitter. I know stupid right? But since I am disabled with Depression and really hate to drive it's been socialization for me.

But lately they haven't been featuring my favorite characters enough, people start spreading rumors etc, you know how it goes, and I spend most of my day getting upset. I know it's dumb. I have tried going cold turkey but I always go back. It's crazy and I know it but how do I stop?

Obsession Problems

Hi all, Have been gone for awhile but need advice. I have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety plus avoidant personality disorder. Won't go into all of it but doctors think it is part biological part environmental. Every time I think I get a handle on things, I end up relapsing.

One of my biggest problems is I tend to fixate on one thing to the exclusion of other things. For awhile it was politics, now for the past couple of years it's been a silly TV show. Then when things don't go well or are even rumored to be going unwell I get nervous and sad. Believe me I know how ridiculous that sounds. But lately all I do is obssess about it.

The thing is I am on disability and most days don't have anyone to talk to but my sister at night. I don't fear going out but I do fear driving and only do it when I have no choice and I don't live near a good public transit system. So talking to people on social media is kind of life line for me, and lately it's been talking about the show.

I am in treatment, they've tried med changes, it just seems I am going backwards not forwards. It all seemed to get worse after a bout of viral meningitis last year. Any tips or suggestions. I am really struggling here.

Kinda Sad My feral barn gang

Know I haven't been around a lot. It's been a weird year I got extremely ill in the summer with viral meningitis & was one of the unlucky ones who ended up with after effects including mood swings and dizziness.

But I have shared stories about my feral barn kitties here before so wanted to update. My sister and I had been talking about building new ranch homes on the property we inherited from my parents. We are getting closer to our sixties and my house in particular is too hard to maintain as it is older two story farm house not in great shape, especially after being hit by car in 2000. The barn and unattached garage were dilapidated to point where insurance company wasn't covering them anymore.

When I got sick my sister decided to get going faster on my new house as she thinks it will make life easier & more enjoyable.

The only bad thing is the barn and garage had to be demolished a week ago. A new shed was built for the 9 members of the barn gang. The only problem was I was supposed to have two weeks to get them acclimated but because of unexpected good weather I got only four days.

One of the two semi tame ones, my favorite, came back the next night yowled. I haven't seen her since. I have seen 2 of the others briefly. They seem to just be eating a little of the food I left in the shed but it doesn't seem, as if they are sleeping there and it's been cold the last few nights. I feel horrible about it and am sad I may never see them again especially my Bumpkin. I didn't buy them or get them from a shelter, they moved in on there own so technically they weren't my pets but I grew to love them, even though I couldn't pet majority of them,and loved caring for them. It gave me a purpose. I had even gotten all but 2 males neutered and spayed through a not for profit program.

I just miss them so much already. People here keep saying they will come back once excavation is finished but I'm not sure. I am grateful I will be getting new home but I am sad because they lost theirs.


Any of you watch Bones? I don't but TV Line has a blind item spoiler about a co lead looking like they are dead in midseason finale with a question mark on whether death sticks because of conflicting reports.

Fantasy show I watch has character who we know is at risk but whom 99.9 percent of fans believe will be coming back because EP's have alluded to his character in second half of season.

But now this BI has me wondering if something has changed. To rule him out I am trying to find other shows that could fit it. One thing I think was clue was Granny's Pearls?

So does anyone know if Booth gave Bones his grandmother's pearls at any point?

Television Question Bones

Does anyone watch Bones? I don't but am trying to narrow done a blind item given by a TV news site. Did Booth ever give Bones his grandmother's pearls or does she have her grandmother's or something?

Viral Meningitis

I haven't been around much this summer because I have spent most of it sick. It started out with a fever of 104 on July 3 and then I developed upper respiratory symptoms. After consulting with Dr.by phone about fever I let it all try to resolve itself. It didn't, the fever lowered but that's it. I was actually getting sicker.

So I called my Primary Care. He saw me and I told him I was pretty sure it was a Sinus Infection. He said no. Told me to go home call him in a week if I wasn't better. I wasn't, so I went back again. This time he agreed with me it was sinus infection.

But he only gave me 3 pills instead of whole Z pack. So I started to get better but then had relapse. He went back to saying it was a virus and wouldn't give more antibiotics. His nurse practitioner said it was allergies, and the Urgent Care nurse practitioner told me it was a muscle spasm when I told her about the neck and chest pain I was developing.

Well two weeks ago last Wednesday I ended up in the ER of the local hospital not knowing my own name. Neurologist on call ruled out stroke told them to check for meningitis and sure enough that's what it was. I was released a week ago Sunday. They told me I got it from the half treated sinus infection. So I was right all a long, and if Doctor had only listened, grr.

Now I keep getting rotten headaches and don't know whether I should call or not as it could just be a normal part of recovery as they said it takes awhile. Has anyone else ever had it? How long did it take to fully recover?

Actually Just had a very cordial conversation with Republican staff member

at Chris Collins office. Says he opposes Fast Track because it will hurt Western N.Y. Economy.

Still not going to vote for him but this is the second time I have agreed with him.

He also spoke out loudly against Chained CPI during Grand Deal fiasco.Said it was back door tax on working class.

So I guess hell can freeze over sometimes. Cause I thought he'd be in lock step with Boner.

Question: Did the Medicare Cuts Pukes asked for make into Approved Fast Track?

Sorry if no one knows yet just wondering cause it will make a bad thing worse!

LA Times Piece on Medicare and Fast Track


Felt very bad for poor kitteh

It's for their own good but...

Colony Caregivers lady came up last to trap 2 last night for TNR spay/neuter clinic today. She got two.

She always calls me out just to double check to make sure she's got right ones because some vets don't do ear tipping very well, and also to confirm it's one who lives here and not some neighbors cat.

Well one was just ticked, but the other ones' eyes were just so dilated and terrified looking and of course she had to look right at me like "why are you letting this happen?" I couldn't help but feel sorry but it has to be done.

Two more after these two, then all nine of the barn gang will be fixed and no more over populating for them.

It's been a long process but thanks to the Caregivers group the end is now in sight. I just hope no one else drops anymore off or no new kitties decide to join group.
