Along with MD, I've been noticing other things about me. For example, this has been going on ever since I was young. I would be obsessed with a certain topic for a month or two, and along with wasting my time daydreaming, I would spend hours researching about that topic. This phase will typically last for a month or more and at times my dds might also be based on this theme. The various topics that I've been obsessed with are psychology and different disorders especially MD, the occult/illuminati, paranormal things, history such as the elizabethian times,  at times different religions and cults, BDSM, and right now racism and the neo-nazi culture and all that. Those are just a few recent ones. Anyways, I also read a lot of fanfictions and if I do have any celebrities or tv show characters in my dds, I will also waste time trying to find out everything I can about them and watch as many youtube videos as I could about them. All of this prevents me from functioning properly. I will often find myself not getting enough sleep unless it's the weedend(then I oversleep because I would wake up, dd and fall back asleep) and going to classes late and I definitely don't do as much things as teenagers my age should be doing. I do get good grades but it's really hard to keep them up and I'm sure if I didn't have this, I would get really high grades. I'm not ADD because I don't think I have a problem paying attention at least not now. However, in middle school I was known as the "lost kid" and I did find it difficult to pay attention but that changed in high school. But I think when I don't pay attention, it's my anxiety, it doesn't really have to do with me having ADD. Does anyone else do what I do? I'm very curious about everything and I often find my mind wandering to all different places.

I agree with Elude, I couldn't have said it more perfectly. For me though personally, I sometimes combine old interests with news ones instead of completing forgetting about them. Also I'v always gotten high grades for some reason even though I don't pay attention sometimes. *Shrugs shoulders* My mind is weird.

Yeah looks like we have a lot more in common than we think. @tarso I used to get bad grades in elementary school. Funny thing is the older I get, the better my grades get for some reason.

I agree completely with EludeMyFantasies. Obsession is like an addiction and serves the same purpose as MD. I've also had it going on ever since becoming an MD-er. I'm also obsessed with certain things to the point of losing interest in everything else.

In the past, I was also obsessed with certain topics such as the paranormal, ESP, wicca, harry potter, etc. I get high grades especially in high school, where I forced myself to focus in class. But in elementary school, I was more scatter brained because my mind wanders often; after doing some meditation in middle school, things got better for me. I also didn't do things that other teens do (i.e. hang out with friends) but spent so much time studying indoors. I had poor study skills as my mind wandered much. I had to spend time rereading text over and over again. Now looking back, I think I wasted a part of my teenage years.
