i do the exact same thing. i observe people a lot and i notice a lot of things most ppl dont and i figure ppl out really quickly. I day dream a lot and think up different scenarios if someone had said this or that and sometimes like you said, in shows, im very inquisitve and i sometimes look into things more than necessary. I also sometimes get intrusive thoughts and images that are hard to go away and sometimes i wonder if im crazy but idk. Im not sure if this is a form of OCD or not but im almost 17 and i just found out that i have ADD/HD this year and theres 5 types and apparently i have the obsessive form of it so maybe? I have anxiety problems too and i started seeing a pschiatrist to try to figure this all out

does any of this make sense or sound like you?

exactly i love this site! i just found it yesterday but its helped me a lot cuz like you said i dont feel as alone cuz no one really understands it.
butt yea dealing with AD/HD along with anxiety and depression is kinda hard.  The AD/HD makes me forget about stuff and makes it easy to lie to myself, but since im a junior in highschool i really need to get my act together.  I guess ive always had a little bit of anxiety but this year now that i decided that i need to give a **** about stuff ive been way more stressed out and anxious.
     Its all really difficult for me to explain, because i dont even understand it and i usually forget about most it and get into different mind frames or like if i stop worrying about it i wonder why all this had bothered me before but it comes back.
    Theres the possiblity i might be bipolar too cuz i just found out my uncle is and my family just has a history of all these health problems mental, and not so who knows what else theyve hidden from me
     But honestly i wouldnt be surprised if i am.  Ive come to terms with the fact that im not normal but its just hard to deal with sometimes
     I read some of your other posts and a couple other peoples talking about depersonalization and i realized that is completely me and it explains a feeling that ive never been able to.

    but hmm. how are these feelings different from your anxiety before?

ughh last night i couldnt sleep and all i had was intrusive racing thoughts of wierd images that would pretty much develop on their own and i find that they can be manipulated by me barely thinking, like it seems like im not doing it but i am? does this happen to you?

well sorry to hear that your going through this but it will pass trust me i went through this  and u will get better and yea ive noticed that the only way to stop these thoughts is to try not to think.but thats the difference before i didnt feel like this i would have intrusive thoughts but i was able to handle them another thing is that i feel like i cant think like i have no common sense,like i dont know whats right or wrong.... before i felt weird but i felt like i could still function now i feel like im crazy like everything scares me....  do u ever feel like this???

kindaa. like i always get wierd vibes and feelings throughout the day. like yesterday especially, i think it could be cuz my prozac dose was raised a little cuz thats theonly reason i can think of but i felt reallyy wierd.  Like i was on my way to the doctors in hte car with my mom and i started telling her about this show i  had just watched but it was the feeling where its like you listening to you voice but it seems like its not you and your not controlling it.  Sometimes i realize that i dont have any thought process and yea like the common sense thing where im really unsure and dont know what to do. its really confusinggg
