The first time I remember it happening was in middle school. We were walking back to the locker rooms from gym class and i was acting out a scene in my head that I was scoring the game winning goal in a soccer match. My buddy that was walking next to me turned to me and said "What the hell are you doing?". I had no response because I really had no idea what I was doing. I wasn't even aware that I was acting out my daydream until he interrupted me.
Ever since then I always daydream about my life but being better than it is. If there is a girl I like, I always day dream different ways that I meet her or talk to her. Its like I desire to meet her so bad that I create the scenario in my mind. I like cars so sometimes I visualize myself driving a cool car. I also like sports, so I always visualize myself being a famous athlete.
I love to go outside and run and I think one of the reasons for that is because when I run outside I am alone and free to daydream without anyone judging me. I get tired when I run and dont daydream, but as long as I am daydreaming, I can run forever.
My daydreams usually happen when I am alone (or when I think I am alone), bored, or doing something repetitive (washing dishes, etc). I usually only daydream for under a minute but if I am not talking to someone or doing something mentally stimulating I keep on going back between reality and daydreaming.
I am happy to find out there are other people like me. I have no idea what to do. Sometimes I act out my daydreams and I have been caught before by family/friends/coworkers and it is very embaradsing. I just want it to stop and I just want to be a normal person. I can't imagine being married and having my wife catch me daydreaming and thinking I am crazy. I am worried that people won't accept me if I tell them about my problem or they will think I am crazy.
I dont know what I hope to accomplish by this post, I just need to vent. Are these symptoms similar to everyone elses? Has anyone had success with ADD medicine such as adderall?
