I need a knew obsession.

Postby _robyn_ » Sun Dec 25, 2011 2:56 am

I have been really really down lately. it is christmas day and all i want to do is go to bed. But I wont sleep, I haven't had a popper sleep in ages. I just never seem to fall asleep and my mum keep worrying because I'm not eating enough (I'm just not hungry.)
School has been really tough and I hate it.

since I was 6 I have had a obsession with doctor who. Full on, I know every single fact about doctor who starting from 2005. But i'm no longer obsessed with it.

But when i had that obsession when ever I felt sad I could just watch a doctor who episode or read a doctor who adventure magazine or look up some doctor who facts on the internet and it always made me so much calmer and happier. But know if im upset nothing cheers me up.

Having a obsession is a coping method for me, and I badly need a knew one because I just feel so rubbish and nothing will make me feel better. Does anyone have any advice?

I don't really know what to suggest as your new obsession as, with me, I have never chosen an obsession in advance-it starts as an interest and then develops into a full blown obsession. It might help to talk to your GP as it sounds like you have a few symptoms of depression and they will be able to help you but keep posting on here too-we are always here to listen to you.

I would give you some ideas but we are all different, at the moment my obessions are inbetweeners, adverts and emerency servie (emerency service have been an obession since I was about 2 years old)

If you're really into doctor who, you should try getting into star wars or star trek, as they both have huge universes that will take longer to fully understand :)

I agree with the advice that has been given. I would visit your GP.
As for a new obsession, no one can choose one for you I don't think. I used to be obsessed with Jacqueline Wilson books. I'm getting too old for them now and it can be weird when I read one now and I'm not as into them as I used to be.

I guess you are right, no one can choose for me. but Iam just trying to find something I can get into liking. I often have lots of little obsession (prime numbers, christmas number ones, rubix cubes) but they don't seem to last long. Unlike doctor who which lasted since I was 6 till 12.
