Can't concentrate on anything, nothing interests me anymore

I have anxiety according to my gp and i only take propranolol from time to time.

In the past months, my thoughts have been going everywhere and I honestly feel crazy in my head. I feel like my emotions are switching up every second and I can't make my mind still. I try to continue my life, occupying myself with work and hobbies, however I have noticed that barely anything retains my attention anymore. I could have an idea in my head and I would get super excited about it and think it's the best idea on the planet and 2 seconds later I would literally scarp it and throw it in the bin. I can't concentrate anymore on anything that I do.

There is this want in me for stuff to be perfect and if it's not, I abandon the project, but at the beginning i get so obsessed with the idea of whatever I am doing, I feel almost crazy. There would be times where nothing interests me a all, for weeks even and I would feel sad and bored because I don't know what I'm doing. However when I do something, i scrap it immediately and just become frustrated.

I feel a real rush in my head and I feel like i can achieve anything, but there are days when I'm completely miserable. This changes day to day. There would be times when i get these mood swings few times a day.

Could this be a form of ocd? Is anyone experiencing stuff like this?

Racing thoughts is very common in many emotional disorders, including anxiety and depression, mania.
Perhaps you can ask your GP to refer you to a psychiatrist.
I have racing thoughts all the time. I use my hobbies and work to quiet my mind.
