It’s currently 2am and I’m exhausted but for some reason I suddenly got the urge to tidy my room, do some questions on logarithms, vectors and forces (I study maths and physics) and then do my Rubik’s cube god knows how many times. I have anxiety too but I can’t work out which this is related to. When I hyper focus, I can often forget about necessities like eating, drinking and sleeping – does anyone have any methods of dealing with this? I will admit, I think these ‘urges’ and impulses are exacerbated by the anxiety and obsessiveness that comes with it.
(I’ve tried meds before and I didn’t get along well with them; I’m a pianist and I felt like it stunted my imagination and creativity.)
