most of his adult life Five years ago Dave took a stand up comedy class and it transformed him by showing him how to find humor in his darkest experiences Dave now teaches stand up comedy to other

2016 Reply I relate completely to this over thinking and rethinking stop start again walk away come back I can feel it happening as wasted hours go by When I recognize it happening these are some tactics that can work 1 phone my husband and tell him my newest grand idea He can validate that I have done a lot of thinking about this Allowing my thoughts to be validated while also hearing You have done a lot of thinking about this 2 go face to face with a knowledgeable source May it be the pet store or hardware store but never the internet To have someone look me in the eye and hear your fish don t need a bigger tank or it doesn t sound like your water heater is broken This option can save time and money 3 Keep a schedule Monday I can sew Tuesday I can look at bills and walk the dog Thursday I pay the bills and walk the dog Sunday do the dishes and clean the house These are tasks that I enjoy doing and some I hate doing By making a schedule I am also mentally preparing as well as forgiving myself to say having that pile of dishes This also sets limits such as Monday I sewed for 14 hours on my quilt project That is enough for one week Thanks for this article It s nice to know others can fall in this rabbit hole I don t see others there much Am February 4 2016 Reply I enjoyed reading this I can relate but luckily I haven t obsessed over an activity in a long time Dave February 5 2016 Reply Great comment Amy Sandra February 4 2016 Reply Hi I read your post and I totally understand how you feel I get easily obsessed with something or someone it feels like I m only happy when I m around him and when he goes or leaves makes me feel guilty and I think about it all day I say no to any kind of situations that could be a risk for me to him sometimes I feel I m living just for him I feel I m hopeless because no medicine is helping me thanks for sharing your experience I feel glad I m not the only one hugs Ollie February 11 2016 Reply yes I think I m undiagnosed at 40 after reading all of this LOL Kara February 4 2016 Reply I obsess over horrible things Things I can t get out of my head they consume me I get the compulsive cleaning where I start by emptying the dishwasher then end up with it taken apart cleaning the inside out and any area I can unscrew to take apart and clean then its on to the fridge cupboards and drawers Soon the day is gone and that s all I ve accomplished But It s nothing in comparison to the negative obsessions I feel that my husband hates me that he talks about me behind my back I search his msg on my PC and his email I m paranoid or that he wants someone else or just wants me gone I m literally driving myself mad He knows I go through his stuff I think he tries to understand IDK I know how destructive and unhealthy let alone absolutely bonkers this is in my own mind yet I m in utter lack of control of my racing obsessive thoughts It s Hell Kara Kylie February 7 2016 Reply Kara I could have written this word for word about myself I feel your pain Much love Xxx Wanda Ivette February 4 2016 Reply WandaIvetteOrtizCancel BlessingsToAll Having a MentalCondition is a struggle but seeking a network of individuals

EmotionalStability In addition to medical and religious support we also need to connect to our relatives and peers that can understand us as well as take care of us while we are in the process of

older i get the harder it is to initiate an action because i think it to death like i should start a garden It would be healthy to obtain a hobby to consume some of my time But no gardening or hobbies my mind goes back and forth on why it would or wouldn t work to the point that I m sick of it but can t stop thinking about it and can t get up and do it ive resorted to mind numbing drugs just so i can function i have literally sat in the same spot in my bed for months unable to focus on anything productive Heather February 5 2016 Reply I can totally relate to this So many things get started but never finished The guilt feeling when you do obsess and contrate on one thing qhilst forgetting about another i want to loose weight but feel guilty if i excercise as i need to get household chores done A vicious circle kgbb February 5 2016 Reply I m the same way But recently I decided I want to finish all the unfinished projects I ve started around my house I make lists of all the things I need to buy to finish them but I can t bring myself to DO any of it I have absolutely no motivation and actually feel a huge sense of dread just thinking about doing anything I pretty much sit behind my computer all day and watch tv getting nothing done I feel SO guilty and lazy but it s my latest obsession and it s ALL I want to do I ll be glad when it gets old and my brain comes up with something else to focus on instead Faith February 5 2016 Reply I can identify with you Sandra I have been obsessed with someone and to my detriment I have driven him away as he says I am harassing him I never realised it is part of my bipolar condition Should I text him and tell him it is part of my condition so he might understand I feel I have lost him forever faith February 5 2016 Reply Trying to stop obsessing over someone can anyone help Karma J February 5 2016 Reply I do not seem to have one thing I m obsessing over But obsession is a part of my life I do seem to have one argument in my head I m replaying now The silent discussion goes on in there constantly the discussion becomes vocal when I am by myself I have a day maybe two every couple of years where the inner dialogue stops I always journal it I feels like a burden lifted It s not the voices in my head kind of voices it s just me obsessing over some conversation or situation that I feel went awry But I lays know when there is something pulling at me because I cannot settle down to any of the things that usually sooth me knitting crochet tatting some art reading nothing not even the ability to escape into sleep I keep organizing stuff to start a project or art piece something changing bags to carry it in but Then can settle to nothing I m pretty sure there is som obsessing going on somewhere that I m subconsciously squashing I just haven t caught hold of it yet Thanks for the clue Beth February 5 2016 Reply I obsess over writing fiction When I m writing editing a story I feel as if that is my actual real life Whenever I m not writing it I feel as if something bad is about to happen or at best I just can t focus Since my job is writing nonfiction from home it can really affect my ability to work It definitely affects my family because I spend all my time at the computer My coping mechanisms I leave a few weeks empty between books and play lots of games with the kids and get out and do things during that time I never write fiction on my work computer and I m not allowed to open my laptop until my day s work is done I disengage from the story and clean the kitchen every night because it makes me feel better in the mornings and because the routine is helpful Also of course I keep working with my doctor on the medication combination that helps me maintain balance Suz February 5 2016 Reply I m new on here i have bipola stage 2 im told It took me a long time for my DR to see it i am very open about itand will not hide it from any one i wish i could find a group where i live my DR did try to get me to a group called time to talk but when they new what i had they would not let me go I struggle with reading and spelling im hard of hearing so at times i find it hard to mix but coming on here has been good to see how other people deal with things Im sorry for any speling mistakes Karen February 9 2016 Reply This is my first time on here too A little nervous but hopefully I can get through it Already analyzing what I am saying to you I was diagnosed bp2 about 8 years ago It was a very difficult thing to hear because the diagnosis came at the wrong time I didn t want to believe it and I believed that my diagnosis gave family an excuse for their bad behavior saying that all was my fault because I was mentally ill My niece and nephew were not allowed to be around me I was pretty much left out of all things Luckily my husband is the perfect one to deal with this He is patient and kind I know this illness is devastating not only for me to deal with but also people around me I just don t like the stigmatism that goes hand and foot with it Hang in there and I hope and pray that you have a great support system The medicine does not work for me I am on meds but this year the depression has been the hardest yet Faith gets me through the most I know that sounds like a cliche but it works God created me and he loves me just the way I am Imperfect but to him I am perfect Talk to people who know what you are going through Outsiders can not comprehend Good luck Kat February 5 2016 Reply I did not know that obsessive thoughts were a symptom of bipolar disorder It explains a lot though My obsessions usually revolve around things that I want but can t get right now I think about them nonstop I m sure I bug people talking about the item and I feel guilty especially if it s expensive that I can t let it go I just always thought I was selfish MH February 6 2016 Reply Wow so glad I came across this article I have been going through an obsession for about 2 weeks now and its finally dying down a bit After 9 yrs being diagnosed I am still learning my symptoms all the time Only until this past year has being obsessive gotten kind of bad I hate that any of us have to go through this but Im so glad to know Im not alone because I honestly I thought I was until this article I have a very supportive family and cant wait to read this to them I want to explain my obsessive behavior alot better and this will help me greatly Thank you Nella February 6 2016 Reply Being obsessed with a person is the worst Especially when that person leaves Al you think about is what he is doing where he is is he also hurt and then you start blaming yourself and looking for the problem with you I m new to the whole bipolar thing only got diagnosed a month ago and never thought that I was obsessed with this person until I read this article Janey February 6 2016 Reply Loved this article as can see myself so much in it I have recently found out I have to move house I ve been obsessing about packing so much that I had to give in and do it at 3 o clock one morning I ve not even found anywhere to go yet yes I have had to unpack a couple of boxes as had stuff in that I needed Tommy February 6 2016 Reply I obsess like this it has been especially bad the last 6 months or so I have been obsessing over what a failure I am how I cant handle situations like I used to obsessing over wanting to be done with it all but fighting knowing my wife and kids still need me its hell the struggle finding value in myself has left me feeling drained Dave February 6 2016 Reply Tommy As someone who has lived through the dark days I can relate to what you are saying I too am alive because I thought of my family As bad as it was I came out the other side You will too Suzanne February 10 2016 Reply Unfortunately my obsession always is a person Usually a man I am dating or seeing This causes problems in so many ways too many texts phone calls etc Hope I learn to deal with this in a more constructive way Spondy69 February 13 2016 Reply Hi I m new here My name is Gina and I guess you could say I m kind of in a severe situation I lost a good psychiatrist last year when I lost a great job Yet another job lost to the disease Anyway it has been over a year since I ve been on meds for the bipolar I m in a big rut and have had no luck in finding anyone to help me I found a new dr but she can t see me for 2 months The way I feel I will not make it that long All I need is for someone to listen to me
