Time

Not sure if this is a group for all obsessions, but...

I'm obsessed with looking at the time.

I literally look at the time about every 20 seconds, sometimes more often. Most of the time, I even remember what the time was from when I last checked. In other circumstances, I look at the time, look away, forget what the time is, start panicking, and look back.

I become very agitated and uneasy when I am unable to look at the time, and breath a sigh of relief every time I look at the clock.

It's really ridiculous, because I have nothing to do. There's no reason for me to care about what time it is at any given point of the day.

It's becoming really annoying, because I'm prisoner to looking at the clock. I never get too into something or have much focus, because I'm thinking about what time it is. While writing this, I've probably looked at the clock about 7 times, and this took me two minutes to write.

I also have weird mathematical obsessions with time. For completely random times, I find myself connecting the numbers to each other using only those numbers and addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. They can be very convoluted or very simple. For instance, for a time like 4:41, I'll think in my head (4 divided by 4 equals 1) or for something like 12:35, I'll think (3-2=1, 2x2=4, 1+4=5)

It's reaaaaallly bugging me. When I try to stop looking at the clock, I think I've made great progress, allow myself to look at the clock once, and realize it's only been two minutes since I last looked.
