Lately I’ve been stuck thinking of a person I felt I had a bad run in with somehow. I can’t get their image or the feeling of lack of resolution out of my head. My mind keeps going back to their face/image/awkward exchange. I’ve even reached out to them to make sure we’re cool and that there’s no problem. The funny thing is, I’m not even really close to this person, nor romantically interested, nor etc... we work together and something about them just makes me uncomfortable. I can’t put my finger on it, but either way, I’m thinking way too hard and disproportionately about it. I can’t hardly turn my mind off it unless I’m occupied, but as soon as I calm down I go back to them. It’s really affecting my ability to concentrate and overall fucking up my mood and groove. Does this seem like OCD to you, bipolar racing thoughts, is there a difference? Is it something different altogether? Any thoughts, coping advice, medication suggestions... all advice appreciated.
