Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I used to suffer feelings of depression and anxiety in my youth. Now at 32, I feel no need to feel so upset, but still deal with anxiety, especially when stressed out. I do feel as if I missed out on life when day dreaming, and am starting to regret it. Do talk to a psychiatrist or therapist and get some help. You shouldn't suffer in silence. Honestly, I suffer every day and nobody knows it.
Daydreaming filled me with butterflies, fun thrills and hopes when I was a young kid. It actually convinced me that I'll get what I want. I believed that I will win over a lot of people too.
Now that I'm an adult, it's turned against me in a way it effected my whole life and my health. I could have had many things and several relationships if I hadn't started. I had no idea that day dreaming is a problem to most people who don't do it. To them, your an 'air head' or a 'zoner' who doesn't live a normal life, and you don't have it great.
Hi. You must search a doctor. I use Escitalopram, and help me a lot with MD.
