Throughout my life going way back as a child I have become emotionally attached to people that makes no real sense to me. I have had a normal married life & raised 3 children who are absolutely normal. I have been depressed at many times of my life & take a mild dose of sertraline. I do not have any close friends, but am close to my children & husband. He has never known my feelings for others. When these feelings have occurred I seem to become obsessed for awhile, but then when I can physically can distance myself from this person I usually can gradually stop the obsession. The problem is that I have wasted so much time & energy during these episodes that I hate myself and feel Embarrassed for having these crazy feelings. I don't want this to happen again. Please help.
