I believe I am addicted to a past lover/relationship (or how it made me feel at least) and have been for a long time. It's been 3 years and even I find my fixation on this girl to be ridiculous and unhealthy... even with OCD. Yet I do not know how to move past it. I am no danger to her physically, the problem lies with me. The mere idea of having to actually move on for good scares me and ever since the relationship ended I have been depressed. I've been reading articles on OLA ever since my therapist mentioned it to me and some of it really rings true to my situation. Any advice on how to overcome this?
