Hello everyone, I have just joined this group because I saw this post about celebrity obsessions and it made me feel relieved I am not the only one to feel like this. Its quite bizarre how I have become obsessed with my celebrity, last Saturday I watched one of his films and despite the fact that I knew of this actor and had seen him in films before I had never thought much about him before. But since watching this film last Saturday I have suddenly found myself obsessing over him. I have bought 13 of his films in the last few days and cant stop thinking about him, I am 28 and this has never happened to me before but I suddenly adore this celebrity. Its disturbing me a little but I am thinking it is some kind of coping strategy to deal with my depressed thoughts. I have used other unhealthy coping strategies in the past such as drinking and over exercising but I stopped those. I think this has become my new way of coping but it is annoying because I always seem to take things to the extreme. I find it funny too that the film I saw last Saturday was ten years before I was born and he is much older yet I still obsess about him.
