boltObsessive thoughts go hand in hand with Bipolar II.  That is the first thing you have to come to realize, accept, and do your best to manage in your life.  Even with a mood stabilizer, the mind keeps on running.  Those thoughts can become obsessive, relentless, annoying, loud, restless, and inconvenient.  You can’t escape your mind and obsessiveness can be a form of paralysis, especially when other aspects of your life are affected or ignored.  Be aware of the ramifications of a single constant thought taking over your mind.  Try and find a balance in your brain, so other aspects of your life don’t suffer.  It’s hard when the mind races, it’s harder when it sticks to one thought in that process. 

The next time one specific thought takes over your perspective on life try and redirect your thought.  Or else,  the rest of your being will suffer.
