This is so me under stress, it's scary. In fact, I seem to fluctuate in and out of this state quite a bit, though I acknowledge that I am somewhat highly strung and therefore easily stressed out.I obsess over tiny details, trying to memorize random pieces of information, focusing on odd things like getting the arrow onto an object in one move, and remembering posts word-for-word.
I tend to binge on food and drink (not alcohol), become extremely impatient, scattered, self-centered, hypersensitive and depressed.
I lose the ability to plan forward, to think clearly and carefully, and to prioritize.
I also lose all hope for the future, and can see only misery in it.
Another minor manifestation is the fact that I constantly check my pockets to ensure that I haven't unknowingly dropped anything.
I was going to say this--keep checking that I put my pass in my bag, keep checking that I put my phone in my pocket, even keep checking that I didn't leave my laptop behind. The sudden OCD usually tips me off I'm stressing about something, if I wasn't aware already.Another minor manifestation is the fact that I constantly check my pockets to ensure that I haven't unknowingly dropped anything.
