An expression which is sort of surreal, but nice imo:

einen Narren an jemandem gefressen haben

lit.: having eaten a fool about somebody

tr.: to take a great fancy to s.o., to be nuts/crazy about s.o.

gefressen is more like munched, no? gefressen vs gegessen?

It means 'wild eating', like normally (well that's a thing open to discussion ) only animals do. 'Munching' is a good translation I think --> you're the sausage expert!

I need a word that means to do something even though you really don't want to do it, because you're so stubborn you can't bear the thought of being conquered by your own distaste

that pretty much describes the feeling i get with some of my ADD brain errors

it especially involves household actions like cleaning or changing the bedsheets.

It is possible to save face to oneself. Most of my life-changing activities have involved just that.
