Obsession with a fictional character
I've been in love with a fictional character for literally, years now. An obsessive kind of love. And honestly, he's kind of a random character. From a comedy cartoon. I fantasize constantly about him, no matter where I am, who I am with. It honestly doesn't bother me. I just wonder for my sanity sometimes. I mean, it's been years now. All I do anymore is draw him, think about him, write about him, etc. It's gotten to the point where I can't focus in school or do anything productive. I just want to do something that has to do with him, even if it's just thinking about him. It puts extreme stress on my relationship. I didn't think much of it at first, I just expected it to kind of fade out along with my other temporary obsessions, but this one has only ever gotten stronger, and like I said, it's been 5-6 years now.
I'm just wondering if anyone's ever experienced the same thing. Or known someone who has. Is this normal? Thanks.
