Where wild minds come to rest
The earliest signs of mdd I remember was in my earliest memories. For quite a while, I had believed that I just had imaginary friends, who'd I play with for hours at a time. But now, I believe I recognize signs it wasn't simply an imaginary friend.
I was extremely close to my friend, and insisted it was real, because it felt like it did. I was so determined that I was tested for schizophrenia. However, I knew it wasn't real. I'd spend time confused why something I knew wasn't real could feel so real. Once, I screamed for the bus driver to stop, because it hit my imaginary friend. Another time, an older kid told Meir had died, and I ran away crying. I built a "scrap book" of drawings showing our whole lives together, baby pictures, and drew her in several of my earlier memories.
I know this was a result of the MDD, but I was wondering: if your daydream character were put in the "real world", would they be an imaginary friend, or their interactions still simply daydreams?
