Where wild minds come to rest

Today I woke up at 7am went outside to listen to music and smoke a cigarette. While Listening I, like many others, let my mind create elaborate battles and scenarios.

I was so enthralled by the fantasy that I began to feel actual physical tingling in my chest and stomach. A gut and heart wrenching feeling that I assume I would have in that situation.

I was wondering if anyone else had felt these sorts of sensations, maybe even fear or perhaps induced a panic attack. If so I'd love to hear your story.

I'm exactly the same, Amanda. I actually feel emotions much less because I'm very inhibited about expressing them and always wondering if my reactions to the situation are socially correct.

Yeah, I have these feelings and reactions too. I offten get embarassed because when I imagine something funny I laugh out loud even when I'm on the train. Not the best thing to do to convince people I'm not mad. 

I'm one of those people who start pacing when imagining something intense, so yeah... I can feel those emotions pretty vividly.  Music is such a great drug, I think it intensifies the reactions and influence them.

Thanks for the feedback I can relate to the Romantic feelings in DD I get those often. No it doesn't scare me as much as it intrigues me that we can create something so powerful that our consciousness is actually transmitted to that place.

Hey. Yes, I don’t think the brain can really differentiate between real and simulated events. It’s all the same. DD emotions and feelings do cross over to the real word. 

My daydreams are more self-centred though and I act out scenarios. Sometimes I will cry for example. Yes, actually tears. 

I feel and display emotions when I interact with DD people more than real life people (In my dds, I am not watching a scene, I am actually in the scene). 

In real life situations, I’m usually very inhibited. I am dealing with anxiety and “what do I say next” and “ I feel awkward” that genuine feelings do not enter. In reality I feel like an actor. I am not my real “self”. In dds I feel like I can be free, be myself. But it’s not real freedom…

I've had feelings like this every now and then if I have a romantic DD. It's like I can physically feel their love for me ;D

No fear-induced ones though, I can imagine how playing it out in your mind would create real physical reactions though.

I think I have on occasion. Mostly for me, when I DD a sad story, I can REALLY feel the emotional pain. Not to get too weird, but when I have imagined kissing someone or hugging someone, at times I have felt like maybe I can feel their warmth. I think it is just the power of the feelings we feel when we DD. Did is disturb or bother you that it was so intense?
