    Yeah it's completely possible you have an obsessive personality. If it's affecting your life to this degree it may well be worth going to a psychiatrist. I just say this because, like I said, I did that when I was younger and later on I was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Some of the symptoms, you've described. You might not, but if it's really messing with your day-to-day life it might be worth seeing your GP.

    You have to sit down with yourself, and tell yourself you will stop. You know it's wrong and you want to stop, you have to really believe you don't want to do it anymore. I know it's hard, you're tied to those thoughts and you're trying to get rid of them, at this point it might be your entire reality, but you can do it if you really mean it.

    No matter what, just remember this will end eventually. Just ride it out, my friend.
    I've gotten obsessive about other people before, friends too. But never to this extent.

    Thanks for the help, seriously thank you so much. I'm going to do what you said and try and see a psychiatrist too, though I can't let my mum know about it, since she wouldn't approve. Are they generally expensive?

    It depends where you live. Here in the UK they're free if you go through the NHS. But if you're somewhere else you should look into websites that tell you where the psychiatrists are in your area, and what they charge. I know private psychiatrists in the UK are expensive, but might be different for you. Also look into confidentially laws to make sure your mum won't get told anything if you think she'll disapprove. I'm getting help and my parents aren't involved at all.

    I hope everything gets sorted.

    That's not how it works.
