Do your daydreams ever surprise you?

I'm wondering if anyone else's daydreams have surprised them?I had a lovely daydream about a long lunch with some character pals and I having a good visit. The married couple's banter was so fun, and there were a few times where I felt genuinely surprised by things they said.That may sound crazy, but it's fairly similar to the feeling I get as a writer when a character 'blurts something out' or 'does something I didn't expect.'Has this ever happened to you with your daydreams? No?See More

Auryn replied to Emily's discussion Myers-Briggs Types
"I'm an INFJ. I daydream as myself, or who I would be in a different situation, so there isn't another character to give you the type for."

Auryn replied to Tina Kelley's discussion Article in TheAtlantic.com about daydreaming
"What a wonderfully cogent article! A clear, understandable look at maladaptive daydreaming."

Auryn replied to Sasha Greenwood's discussion MD and Compulsive Behaviors?
"I have actually been diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder. Currently it's  very well-managed, and I don't have many symptoms at the moment, but at various times I've had all sorts of compulsive symptoms."

Auryn replied to Chris Parker's discussion Hello I am new here. My story of how I started daydreaming.
"Hello and welcome! A lot of maladaptive daydreamers play with characters and storylines from popular film and television - you're definitely not alone. Glad you found this place. :)"

Auryn replied to Richard Quest's discussion Cosplaying DD Characters?
"I sort of do the opposite of this. I will take pieces I already own, and then weave them into my daydreams. "This bracelet was a gift from the princess..." And then I'll have a big daydream about adventures in a distant kingdom, and…"

Auryn replied to Emani's discussion Not a sufferer of MDD
"I think I can relate to you here. There's a broad spectrum of MDD-type behavior - one end is more maladaptive, and at the other end intense daydreaming poses less of a problem. I count myself very fortunate to be on the easier side. For some…"

Auryn replied to Alex's discussion Anyone else, or am I alone?
"I also visualize my characters in the space around me a lot of the time, so that's something we have in common :)"

Auryn replied to Elizabeth Moore's discussion My MD has almost gone...but I can't get over the finish line
"You might try putting your alarm clock farther away from your bed, so you have to get out of bed to turn it off. At least that way, you're physically out of bed. I also find I am the most easily sucked into daydreams just after waking up, and…"

Auryn replied to tami's discussion my story. can anyone relate?
"I can definitely relate. There was a multi-year chunk of my life where my closest friends were daydream figures. I know it was a coping mechanism, but I'm really grateful that it was available to me when I needed it. I'm lucky in that…"

Auryn replied to NovBaby's discussion How many of you are/were an outcast?
"I did feel like a social outcast in elementary and middle school, when my daydreaming was the strongest. It was a powerful coping mechanism."
