stuckness
What would you call someone that can only stop doing something when it's removed from them completely....?

they do that thing ad until unable to..... they can stop doing the thing but they keep getting sucked back into it. on top of that they just move to the next thing that keeps sucking them in after that. i.e. watching youtube to everyday till the inability arise then playing video games or watches movies day in and day out. on top of that they find it's hard to do anything else. how would you describe this person.

1. Striding and swaggering rootlessness without end. The precious flow of life.
2. one should fear sweet a blood stained flower.

Obsessive? Fixated?

addicted (əˈdɪktɪd)
adj
1. dependent on a substance, esp a narcotic drug
2. devoted to a particular activity or thing, to the extent that one does it or has it as much as possible

So that would be yes.

You sound a bit obsessed.

Have you talked to your doctor about this? What do your parents say?

I've been receiving mental health services but not for addiction.... I have sent an email to two of the people over the program. they will get back to me tommorow. my parents haven't been asked but I think they would know by now.

edit 1: I've just noticed today.....

Be honest with your care workers and let them help you.
