My Crazy Obsession is a documentary-series that premiers on TLC and follows different individuals who admit to having a wild and unique obsession. They center their lives around their obsession, allowing their time, money, and thoughts to be consumed with their passion, even allowing it to drain their resources. There's no limits to the obsessions, each situation entirely different than another. Episodes include a family that is obsessed with working out, even having their two children lift twice their own body weight. You can also find people obsessed with Cabbage Patch dolls who regularly practice having playdates with other neighbors who also share in the fun. Although most people run at the site of rats, the show documents a woman who finds comfort and security in her 19 rats who she considers her children and her "purpose in life." She finds herself not having enough rats, often purchasing more to have in her apartment. One of the most popular episodes covers several individuals who are obsessed with the spirit of Christmas and holiday lights. You'll find a woman who talks to her Christmas trees and spends all year planning for the season and covering her home in holiday decorations and figurines. When the obsessions seem to reach as far as possible, more episodes include a fanatic obsessed with matching her hairstyle with her Barbie dolls after she rescues them from landfills. Her life purpose is to rescue Barbie dolls worldwide that have been thrown out. Already, she's rescued 8,800 dolls and says she has an incredibly deep connection with them. Although women are generally associated with fantasy mermaids, My Crazy Obsession follows a Merman, Eric, who claims to "eat, breath, and sleep mermaids." He drives an hour and a half every week to one of the largest springs to throw on a tail and swim in the deep waters. Eric dives in the deep water to escape from the world, and can even hold his breath for up to four minutes.
