    I'm writing to enquire if anyone has any similar problems to me and has somehow got over them. I just seem to get so obsessed with people and get really upset when someone even mentions they may leave my life soon. For example a work colleague recently mentioned he is thinking about leaving in the next 6 months. I'm very upset by this. It's not like I haven't got other friends or am lonely in any way- how do I get rid of these super extreme feelings?!

    Kinda do. If any of my friends left and even now, when my girlfriend heads to Hong Kong in a week or so, it feels like I may break down. How to get over it? Well, distract yourself. Find a new hobby, and do something that will take your mind off things. Sounds easy, but not in practice, I know, but dude, time will heal it all in due time. I guess it takes a lot of courage (?) to get over these feelings, and don't worry, lots of people get that feeling when someone close is about to leave.
