people with adhd, is it possible to hyper fixate on people? maybe a celebrity or even just a friend or something? i feel like 90% of my hyper fixations are on people but idk if that’s an adhd thing or something else.

    sometimes I do this with friendships/new friends. I never even connected it to my adhd before! This is so interesting

    yesss i used to do this all the time. actually before i realized i was a lesbian i would hyperfixate on men that i thought i liked and mistook that for attraction. u can hyperfixate on anything!

    Oh yeah! Being a sports fan I love watching all pro sports (mainly mens sports because accessiblity 🙄) but I hyperfixate on both sports and certain players. Doesn’t matter how good or bad the player is I just grab them and essentially put them in my front overalls pocket
