"Confession: I've ALWAYS thought I was sick-minded because my daydreams consist of a young girl with a fatal disease, and her boyfriend trying to keep her alive. (Basically, in a nutshell, of course.) But, reading all of your comments, it seems…"
"I'm so glad you got to go back :) I came from a very wealthy and highly educated family too but I missed the boat by 2 generations. I have lived at or below the poverty level most of my life. I can't get loans due to decades of…"
"Is there any chance you could go back? I was in community college and had to drop out several times due to circumstances as well. Then I started going to a university in Maryland but again, had to drop out. I finally started going…"
"That's one of my daydreams as well. To just go to community college. I'd be happy with that. I tried, had a 4.0 all 4 times I went, but each time had the rug pulled out from under me by either my health or finances. I scored so highly on…"
"I get where you're coming from. My DD is usually about a "better" version of myself, such as thinner, I don't owe the IRS thousands of dollars because of an error on my taxes (real life sucks sometimes), I've already…"
"It's kinda funny, I usually live in remote locations so I can't get psychiatric help. I often fantsize about a shrink that I talk to in order to help me work out problems in real life....or sometimes to show off my intellectual prowess…"
"Perhaps the DD when we are young is "normal" but as we age, our psyche recognizes that DD brings about happiness, combats boredom, etc. and learns that it is a good coping mechanism. So then the DD becomes more serious or involved…"
"Amy, I think it is totally possible that you could be compensating. I am sure that's why I do it. When I was really little it was just for fun but as I got older it was definitely compensation. I created a group of best friends because I always…"
"Currently my daydreams are about love, me and my dream guy. I bounce around different scenarios between us. Sometimes we are in a relationship, sometimes we are just friends but I am in love with him, sometimes we are just meeting for the first…"
"Kacey, do you think this is just a daydream or do you think that you're daydreaming about a special man because there is something lacking in your real life relationship? (I mean no offense when I say that.) That's the…"
"Most of my daydreams are romantic in nature, and I'm always thinner, richer, have a better job, on vacation in some beautiful country, etc. When I was in junior high and high school, I would write the stories down (sort of a teen version…"
"I was married to Ben but then my past came back to haunt me, Sam who is a cowboy, lol! He kidnapped me and locked me in his gypsy cowboy style caravan. He would tie me and drug me up. His best mate hit in me in the head but Sam saved me and we fell…"
"For the last month I have fantasized about a man who doesn't exist. I have a fiance' but he pales in comparison to the man I have created. I've got to describe him. He's a Cajun from Louisiana. He's tall with black hair and…"
"I found God. And got involved at my church. Now I'm surrounded by people who love me and care about me.
