Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I did for a full 15 years, but it took me another 5 years to transform and think normally as anyone else. Still, I tend to pause and drift by accident. My mom can't always tell when I'm listening to her and knows about my daydreaming. I will stand there, look right at her and listen up, but then she'll wave her hand. As if she can't be sure and doesn't quite trust what I'm doing. I'm so afraid somebody new will do the same thing. Wonder if I'm really here. Even after you stop daydreaming, it still lives in your eyes and will not leave. People are very smart about your eyes. When your a kid, children don't stop to look, their always playing and goofing off. When your an adult, other adults are always talking directly to you about politics or anything. So apparently, I had to quite MDD altogether, for fear of being caught too many times, and others reacting to it strongly.
I also struggle to explain my thoughts so I prefer talking in real time via chatrooms but these are getting harder to find. I tend to jump from MD site to MD site to see who is online to talk to. How did you manage to overcome your MD?
So has your daydreaming stopped completely? Have you been in your relationship long? I've been using discord and the other MD forum Daydream in Blue and most people say they haven't been able to get rid of it totally. I know I won't stop daydreaming but I really need to not do it so much.
