Where wild minds come to rest
Unfortunately, my family has not been supportive. They know about it and they think I'm nuts, yet they don't treat me like a nut and they don't try to get help for me or encourage me to get help; they "hold it against me." When your intimates are composed of people who don't love you or who hate you, they feel elated that you have a "character flaw" and they assume that you have some kind of control over it. It's almost like being crazy is a choice. My advice is to take stock of the character of the people around you and try to determine if they are compassionate or competitve before you share your soul with them. Chances are, that even the kindest people will not take your problem seriously because to them, daydreaming is harmless and they just won't understand the gravity of the situation.
Hi guys. I'm Libby. I'm glad to have found you all.
Anyway, My family has no idea. After I completed Cynthia's survey, I felt uplifted and inspired. Everything felt different. I started thinking...It has a name now. There is a professional studying it. And (this is my favorite part) there are other people who do this, and I have found them all over the internet. :) I recognized myself differently than ever before...not crazy! So this inspiration led me to casually mention some vague statements to my husband about it. He simply said, "Baby, everyone knows you're a nut." and then he poured himself a coke. He didn't really get my "casual and vague statements."
That was pushing my comfort level to the max to be honest. I doubt he will ever know if it's up to me to spill it.
