OMG there was an attempted terrorist attack at the Christmas tree lighting a block from my apt. SO SCARY. I didn’t go because of the crowds, but still. I’m shaking. I feel so vulnerable all the time. It’s worse because I’m such a loner that I’m certain my cats would starve to death if anything happened to me. No one would know until it’s too late. I wish there was something I could do. Some way to ensure they’d be taken care of. I don’t free feed them because so many vets… Continue

I just joined here... not really sure what to expect. I guess i should start with a little introduction? I'm Karla... and I have this "disorder", as they call it. Part of me hates it, hates them, but part of me can't help but love it. To be honest, my daydreams are a small light to focus on when my world freezes over. When lonliness makes me choke for air, my lungs longing for a small breath of liberation. (Though unexpectatley, it caused most of my depression. Oh, the… Continue

Here's one of my favorite twelve-step slogans: "In addiction, fear stands for 'f*** everything and run.' When I'm willing to let go of addiction, fear stands for 'face everything and recover.'" No particular twelve-step program endorses this underground slogan, but I've heard it around and I like it.

It's that time of year again! Cold, dreary, and dark. My mood becomes exceptionally low during these months which triggers my episodes and makes them much darker. I recall a previous post in which someone related their SAD to MD. I can see the connection. I'm personally off my anti-depressant medication right now but I'm afraid to say that I might be back on it soon. :( Can anyone else relate? God, I can't wait for spring.

I was wondering if any of you have Asperger's syndrome or if there has ever been talk of a link between Asperger's and maladaptive daydreaming.
I have not been diagnosed with AS, but am going to get evaluated for it soon. I heard a lot of girls with Asperger's have lots of fantasies/daydreams or sometimes imaginary friends. AS females are often misdiagnosed or diagnosed much later than males because they can appear more "normal."

I’m trying to remember if there was ever a moment in my life where I wasn’t completely paralyzed by the fear that my whole world was about to come crashing down on me. It’s so bad. I start the day by fearing all I have to do & knowing I’ll never catch up. I fear the phone. I check my email, afraid of what may be inside. I’m afraid that someone’s going to email me angry, judging me for my attitude, telling me they won’t help me. I fear the phone because I know it’s bill… Continue
