Is there a mental illness that involves having strange obsessions that change frequently?

Question by : Is there a mental illness that involves having strange obsessions that change frequently?
I am always (since I was a child) having obsessions with random things like places in the world, careers, musicians, etc. That last like 5 months and then change over to something else, is there a mental illness that has this as its symptoms?
like, I mean obsessed. Not normal obsessed. Like, to the point of researching them all day, and only thinking about the topic that i am obsessing over.
I do not want to not be interested in them anymore, though.

    Obsessive compulsive disorder, but that sounds just like you are really into something ^ ^ With O.C.D. it is more like a habit that is hard to break so they wouldn’t change that easily, and the habits aren’t usually being interested in something ^ ^ I’m sure there is nothing wrong with you ^ ^

    You know what, i don’t think that is a mental illness. One major question: Can you deal with not obsessing over something? Or do you feel compelled and freak out if you don’t obsess over something.

    what your talking about is what people fear about future generations, where no one likes to study and stick to something anymore, this is due to ease of access to information because of the internet etc. what your doing is floating over subjects getting bored and moving to the next.

    mental illness=no / lack of self discipline=probable


    to be honest you probably just like to gather information (an explorer type)-nothing wrong with that
