i honestly just need to vent about this because none of my friends really understand, but i have a love hate relationship with hyperfixation, i love it because im focusing on something i enjoy but when im done hyperfixating i feel so weird? or empty? and i just hate not being able to focus on anything else but the thing im hyperfixating on. on top of that its also on things i like or people i like and everytime people dont realize ive already been interested in whatever it is and people are always like “wOw yOuRe a fAkE fAn.” On top of all this it just goes in a loop of the same things and there was something else but i cant remember it haha so if i remember ill just reply to this. does anyone else experience this?
yesss so much. I can't read anymore because I get hyperfocused on whatever I'm reading and when I get back to reality, I get so depressed. and I get really excited about things happening in the book and annoy the absolute shit out of anyone nearby
that’s exactly what happens to me and i just get so excited but i don’t want to annoy anyone!
yesss! thankfully I have a sister who also has ADHD so we send each other voice messages of us freaking out about our recent hyperfixations. you can definitely message me for your excited rants if you want! I absolutely adore listening to people ranting about things they like, so no fear of annoying me :D
I completely understand, I have a hard time with hyperfixating too. The space in-between fixations is so depressing, and the conflict between multiple fixations is horrible.
yes exactly its so strange and when you are hyper fixating on multiple things at once its like emotional overload
Getting lost in a video game then realizing a whole day has gone by or becoming scarily focused on researching a certain topic for hours. Is this hyper-fixation?? I’m not sure actually lol but it does make me feel depressed and empty after I’m done
i think that is considered hyper fixation, its such a weird feeling i get when im in between my hyperfixations
