I have ADD and OCD, which is has manifested holding onto past

Customer Question

I have ADD and OCD, which is has manifested holding onto past lovers. At the end of each relationship, I cannot let go, and stalk ex's , almost like a form of self harm. I look at emails/Facebook pages to remind me of them, and cry with inconsolable jealousness as they move on whilst I cannot budge.
I have read that it is a neurological problem, and I will do anything to let go and move on.
I am single and 57,
Please help!

Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal
