What Video?

Watched CNN awhile ago and Bill Press was arguing with some Republican woman about videos she claims show Democratic operatives planning to cheat? What the hell was she talking about? Was she making crap up because I haven't heard anything about it?

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.
