BIPOLAR NOW PHOBIC

Diagnosed as bipolar 3 years ago but am coping rather well. I have also recently been promoted so that indicates to me that things are going ok. I have recently noticed certain irrational behaviour like straightening items, don''t like anything in my line of sight while watching TV and also get anxious when hugged, etc - feel as if I am going to smother. Is this something to be concerned about or not?

Some of us have obsessive traits in our personality, not amounting to a disorder, but either charming or annoying, depending on circumstances. Feeling concerned about smothering when being hugged would be unpleasant - realistic the way some people mhug, but perhaps excessive when facing merely gently hugs. Maybe a spot of counselling could enable you to examine such concerns and assess them realistically ?
