Selecting a therapist

What are some key things people should look for when selecting a therapist or somebody who studies the mind? What are the different types and how are they distinguished? Are there certain ones to stay away from? Is there a high possibility that one who prescribes meds is going to call my M.D. as ADD or anxiety and put me on meds that will drain my fantasies?

"Hmmm, I don't do either of those things. Definitely zoning out to music and I guess what others would see as talking to myself or making gestures. "

Question

Does your obsession with a certain character cause a biased feeling towards other characters in the same type of genre? For example... let's say your character is Bruce Lee. You spend large amounts of time in your life pacing or repeated body movements to thoughts of Bruce Lee. You keep replaying scenes from Enter the Dragon. Would it be common for somebody with this disorder to reject Jackie Chan or Jet Li or any other type of character in that genre because of their obsession with Bruce Lee?…See More

"Yes, "daydreaming" just sounds too neutral, while this whole thing to us is at least a problem to due with in some extent. We know that our world is made up by ourselves, and can probably set aside it to due with real world problems first…"

"Absolutely, the word “daydream” just sounds so innocent and makes it seem like a choice. Another name I’ve heard for it is compulsive fantasizing, which I like a bit better."

Which is worse with MD?

Posted on September 12, 2017 at 8:54pm 1 Comment

If you had to pick one problem being the worse, is it difficulty paying attention and listening or difficulty socializing and expressing yourself with others?

Pacing

Posted on September 11, 2017 at 6:28am 6 Comments

I pace alot with MD. Especially to music and movies. Sometimes I excuse myself to the other room from where people and start pacing. I pace the moment I am alone in an elevator or alone in a single person restoom. How common is this with MD? I feel like these feelings that i pace to are good energy and full of creativity. I've done this my whole life. Is this a habit that needs to stop completely or should I set aside time to pace?

Question

I am 35 years old and it looks like I am in the same boat as alot of you other guys who just stumbled upon this word maladaptive daydreaming and I am so blown away how Googling the words pacing and whispering was the clue that just cracked the entire case to explaining every detail of my entire life! I was expecting to see possibilities of anxiety or stress or panic attack. I have been seeing a therapist regarding me being antisocial, standoffish and quiet my whole life and not showing any… Continue
