Hello, I've seen several posts on this site from people admitting to having an obsession with a celebrity, not just a crush or a normal infatuation, but a full blown obsession, not being able to function without thinking about that certain celebrity, and spending long periods of time online reading about them, looking at pictures of them, constantly researching them and always checking the news relating to them. These people seemed confused and unable to understand why they feel the way they do. What broke my heart is that since this is a such a rare thing, almost nobody could say anything that would really help, because they just don't understand the way that it feels. I have decided to start this thread, because I am in the same situation. As a 16 year old boy, I have had an unhealthy obsession with a female celebrity since I was about 13, and before that, I had an obsession with a different female celebrity from ages about 8-12. I know how it feels, and i know how debilitating it can be, I understand how ashamed it can make you feel, and how hard it is to even consider telling anyone about it, and I don't want anyone to have to deal with this all by themselves for as long as I have had to. I am starting this thread not asking for help, but as a safe place for anyone suffering in this situation to come and discuss their own situations, and have full support from others that understand how you feel.
