Addicted to Manga(Losing my grasp on reality) - August 8th 2013, 04:31 AM

I have a terrible addiction for reading Manga and Watching anime, and it's causing my life to spin out of control. I'm taking advanced classes but my grades are slipping because I'm not spending enough time studying, and my management skills for my after school clubs have gone down the drain; I haven't gotten more than six hours of sleep in the past year, and now my eyes are always red and puffy.People always think I've been crying when I haven't.

Since I'm a BL fan my condition has gone to extreme: At moments I find myself wishing I was a boy instead of a girl, and having the desire to be a player instead of being the docile girl. In fact, I could be called a sadist

Well here's the thing: I'm most definitely NOT a boy, and I'm actually really pretty(I swear I don't mean to be shallow). I'm not attracted to boys...I'm attracted to ANIME boys, and I really wish I were a sexy guy instead. Am I losing my mind or what? What's happening to me?

People think I'm a heartbreaker, but its not like that. I don't mean to be cold to guys, but I don't want them to get the wrong idea. I don't want to be their girlfriend; I want to BE the breathing, living version of them.

Oh, my grades...my SAT scores...my gender identity.

Someone please help me out because I need advice desperately.

I know how it is to be addicted to anything Japanese (look at my display picture for crying out loud it's a J-Rock singer). But the thing is, put your thought into the fact that if you read your fill of your BL manga, you'd eventually have nothing else to read right? Put the book down, or even have a certain number of pages you're allowed to read that day. don't go over (possibly write it down) and that's it.

Hope some of the suggestions helped.
