Where wild minds come to rest

This is my first day talking about myself and my condition online and I hope whoever reads this will appreciate the context and be respectful. In short I do daydream often and I talk to myself frequently while pacing back and forth, however if I am not intereacting with someone I will mummble to myself/ talk to myself while i am walking to my car or on my way to class. I know that they are not real, and If i am by myself I tend to indulge in my fantasy. I keep telling myself I should just start writing it down but it feels kinda personal and I don't want everyone to know everything, but I am looking for words of wisdom from anyone who understands and has found ways to still live without shutting themselves out complelty from reality. something that I am still struggling with.

And when it comes to writing your story, I am working on that with a group of MDers and it is very satisfying. I felt the same way you did at first, but then it started to become a weight off my back. It is very reassuring to know that your life's work is a tangible real thing. I highly recommend trying.

I guess the best word of advice I can give you is to constantly push yourself into reality, even when it's uncomfortable. I am a total shut-in so I get it, but I do know that once you establish a good group of friends (one's that you look forward to being with) reality become more desirable and you can be in it more rather than in your mind. I guess it's all psychology: the reason you daydream (at least what I think) is because you'd rather be in your head rather than in reality. If you trick yourself into thinking reality is better than your fantasy world, you would rather be in reality. (I say 'trick' because we all know fantasy is better than reality ten-fold) Well, uh, that's all I really have to say at this moment. Not any mental hacks or anything, just straight up psychology. Try and like reality, that's my advice.
