This is going to sound very weird, but here goes.....
My BF suffered a concussion about a year ago and since then his personality has changed and he gets obsessed with things usually for about 4 or 5 months then moves on to another obsession....
First it was the "pending economic collapse". He began hoarding food and reading constantly about how to survive a doomsday scenario.. He could think about and talk of nothing else...
Then he got a new neighbor. Decided he hated his new neighbor and became obsessed with "getting even" with him after the guy cut down trees he liked (not even on his property) BF even cut out windows in his house to install cameras to spy on his neighbor.
Then last March it was organic gardening....he decided he needed to learn how to grow food etc. in his backyard and even purchased a bio dome etc. the bio dome was never used....

Now, his latest obsession is retirement/becoming a slumlord... He is completely panicked that he does not have enough to retire, so he pulled his money out of the stock market and is now obsessed about getting buying a cheap run down home in the bad part of downtown and fixing it up to rent it out. I tried to point out that buying a house Downtown was "fools gold" and everyone we know who had that same "investment" idea ended up hating it, losing money and eventually moving back to the suburbs....he won't listen. Plus I won't visit him if he moves to a crack hood thinking "his house will eventually appreciate because of the location" as he says....
He never had these odd obsessions before his injury. This has just happened in the last year....he has always had some sort of pipe dreams he would talk about casually in the past but nothing serious....
The latest obsession is really coming between us. When I confronted him about it he said " you have to just worry about something that may or may not happen!" And he says it is no big deal...he is so obsessed with this latest pipe dream, he has been ignoring me pretty much...makes me sad.
I don't want to throw away a 5 year relationship , but the last year since his head injury and all these obsessions has been rough....it sucks watching him just set himself up for failure...
