Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I become very attached to anyone I daydream about. I usually don't make up fictional characters but use real life people (friends, family, celebrity crushes, etc.)
Right now I'm extremely attached to a celebrity crush so much in fact that I write stories about us being in a very sexually active relationship.
I've had the same main character pretty much since ive started, mainly in one base world that i edit to fit whatever story im doing at the time.
It's kind of like those tv shows where you can watch episodes out of order, because the characters and their basic situations stay generally the same, and each episode has its own plot which begins and ends by the end of the episode, or maybe the whole season. Like a "base template" I build all of my dreams on top of, then when im done with that dream, i start the next one going from that same template of central characters, but they can have different backgrounds, different interests,...
Yeah, I've the same thing, daydreaming one character (mostly unchanged) most of my life. Her and I are constantly fighting and arguing about things, and she tries to annoy me on purpose, and seems to disagree with most of what I say just for the sake of disagreeing.
She's also preggers in the dd now, and much 'worse'. Somehow I still love it though.....
I think we are all really connected.
