I'm afraid to be without it

Started this discussion. Last reply by Alex Oct 18, 2017. 4 Replies

I don't really know why I'm writing this other than to document a recent change in my feelings about MD. I used to be firmly against trying to quit because I felt the pros outweighed the cons. And…Continue

Anyone else, or am I alone?

Rant incoming, but if it's tl;dr I bolded questions and important details and just answer those if I'm too wordy for you. :PI read about other people's experiences and I feel a bit alone because the…Continue

Alex replied to Fergus McRobson's discussion “Mal”adaptiive day dreaming?
"If your daydreaming isn't maladaptive, then it's just daydreaming. Maladaptive in psychology is basically referring to poorly-adjusted behavior. It's dysfunctional, distressing. Like having a drink to reduce stress is only really…"
Alex replied to jung hoesuck's discussion Does anyone else have a ''main character'' other than yourself?
"I have trouble saying she's not me. Our backstories I obviously know the difference between, but I'm not sure our personalities are so easily detangled. I've been "playing" her since age 10, after all. I'm not so sure…"
Alex replied to David Burkett's discussion Question
"I'm not sure about this one scenario, but to me I don't think my negative daydreams are so black and white so mine at least arguably still fit the description. I had a phase where my daydreams were nothing but morbid and that's what I…"

Alex replied to Theaxe's discussion Stalking Tendencies
"I've met three of my character's significant others, one of them several times (and she's a hugger ^_^), nothing out of the ordinary though. All are musicians and I met them at shows. I did accidentally spurt an "I love you"…"

Alex replied to Tammy O.'s discussion Do you feel like you wasted some of your life in your daydreaming?
"Depends what you mean. If the only thing that was different was I didn't daydream, nothing would really be different. I'd still be an introvert with social phobia who is too rejection-sensitive to put herself out there, I'd just be…"

Alex replied to Theaxe's discussion Do Your MD Characters Have a "Shelf Life"?
"Just whatever feels right. If someone's losing their spark, they'll fade out of the picture when it's their time. I always have to chase the spark and have little tolerance for characters/plots that aren't doing it for me. Main…"

Alex replied to David Burkett's discussion What do you do?
"Lay low unless I sense the same "enthusiasm," then I'll feel comfortable enough to unleash the beast. "

Alex replied to Rene Walker's discussion How do you know if your daydreaming is severe?
"As a human services major, my rule of thumb for gauging if really anything mental illness is a problem per se is how maladaptive is it, as in how counterproductive, how damaging to various dimensions of your life and does it impede your goals?I zone…"

Alex replied to SJ's discussion I'm curious what is the longest day dream you have had?
"Kinda depends on your definition, cause I have one long-ass daydream that I'll reinvent as I change to suit my interests/needs. The narrative includes at least my 10 year-old self's daydreams so 13 years I guess. Same with the character;…"

Alex replied to EllyssaJ's discussion What are your "ticks" while day dreaming?
"I don't do any singular thing repetitively, I just act out my daydreams. For those of you who do it all in your head, basically I pretend I'm the main character and I "see" the other characters in the room with me and interact…"

Alex replied to David Burkett's discussion Character and Body Movement
"She currently goes by Effie, short for Nephele. This is her third "incarnation" so to speak, same character canonically I've had since age 10 but I get bored with certain details like name, nationality, age, etc. Facial…"

Alex replied to Alex's discussion I'm afraid to be without it
"MatthewR: I don't think separation anxiety exactly, more like abandonment issues. I feel like if people get too close they're going to see my inner self and it'll scare them off, which feeds into my bad social anxiety. Or sometimes…"
