Obsession is unhealthy, continued...

I can't really think of a time when I was obsessed with something. The closest I can come is when my father was in hospice and I wanted to make sure he didn't die alone. I was crazed with the idea of him passing without a loved one holding his hand. I spent a lot of my time filling in slots (when someone else couldn't sit with him) even after I fulfilled my shift. I did think about it every minute I wasn't there. It overwhelmed me. This only lasted over a month before he passed but had he lived for many months and/or years, I might not be sane today.
I was there holding his hand along with other members of our family when he passed. I was sad but grateful we could be with him.
I've never chased someone who wasn't interested in me. This type of obsession seems to be common.
