Where wild minds come to rest
So I have been thinking a lot lately about this... disorder, I guess you can call it...
Although I usually am thinking about it in ways of how to cure it, or ease the pain of it, I am thinking about it overlapping with other disorders.
I suffer from Jargon Aphasia, and you might be wonder how I am able to even write correctly, it's because I have coped with it. It takes so much mental energy to think in English, that in my daydreams I speak in my so-called Cancrin Language. Like I've told you before in my other blogs, my alter-ego lives in the Cancris, but I haven't told you this. I'm just wondering if any else of you suffer from this or any other form of Aphasia, I hope I'm not alone.
With this disorder, I have a strong feeling it's related to Obsessive Compulsion Disorder, because I have that disorder. Because we are compulsively obsessed with our daydreams, that it often consumes our lives.
And I feel that us MDers often feel slightly schizophrenic with our desire to be like our alter-egos. Like I've started believing that some of the characters in my daydreams are my spirit guides, I don't know if it's true or not... but what else do I know?
Anyways, I just want to hear your guys think about the overlapping of mental disorders.
Do you think maladaptive daydreaming is just part of another disorder, or a whole different one on it's own? I want to hear your thoughts.
And what other mental disorders do you guys suffer from, are you depressed? Tell me in the comments below, I will always be here to be an understanding ear.
