Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Do you ever get tired of DDing? I feel like my mind wont stop sometimes and I cant surface and stay in the present when I actually want to :/
It makes me feel like Im losing my mind...as much as I love my DD sometimes I'm sick of it in general or I get stuck in my dream and cant come up with anything new so I just repeat things over and over which makes me feel like a broken record.
Do you ever feel like youre "done" with a story and it makes you sad to see it and your characters go but it just doesnt seem to do it for you anymore? I feel that way right now, I miss the exciting days of my current dream :(
Ive found that when i get a mental block, as i call it where i can't come up with anything new, i start to repeat what has already been done, this makes me feel really tired in my mind, however when im comping up with new scenarios it doesnt tire me out that much, it actually gives me some energy, but then i usually use that up by daydreaming too much anyway. its a horrible cycle, but don't feel crazy! thats what i did for a while but i realised that if i keep thinking im not crazy and just generally not making such a big deal out of MD then i wont be crazy..... crazy huh?
I have experienced it a few times, but it never continued for a long time. After some days, something would turn up and new scenarios would arrive, and the sorrowful dreams would turn happier and more adventurous. I believe that the daydreams have a distinct relation with the real world that you live in. When an MDer faces continual sorrow in his real life, he tends to hide under his own cover of MD. But later when it happens like he has accepted the sorrow with himself, but yet couldn't get out of it, his dreams change to sorrowful ones. It is a time when he has accepted the sorrow as a part of his life yet could not get over it. Is it something like this for you or something like you are losing interest in the topic you used to daydream about?
Please visit my blog Kiss of Fantasy n share ur ideas, I would love to relate to them. Thanks...
I've always had some OCD tendencies so sometimes even when I try to turn it off it just keeps going, but Im not just Dd'ing, I will be repeating single conversations between characters or scenarios ALL night...like when a song is stuck in your head. I'm not even interested in some of the scenarios right now but I literally cant get it out of my mind.
I take a sleeping pill 1 or 2 nights a month out of sheer exhaustion, I would like to avoid meds but Im really at my wits end because its out of control day and night :(
