Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Im in the situation most of the time.
i feel the same way. i also imagine myself in my daydream. its like im a totally different person when im daydreaming. i also make gestures and make facial expressions to express the character. its like my own movie or a novel that im creating..
yes, i had the same worries and i'm relieved too
I act like i'm in the situation, but i'm not my real self, but the fictional character that represents me. However, i use this to cope with diverticulitis in real life. For example, when im faced with some kind of a problem, i switch to the fictional character that i identify as myself. It's easy to cope because she has lot of people to help her.
I never tell my problems to real people. I tell all my worries to the fictional characters in my head and they help.
