Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Ive been looking at the posts, forums etc. on this page for a while now, but ive never had the guts to post anything... until now.
Right now, I'm dealing with a lot, and I just cant seem to get a hold of it because all I do is daydream. I keep telling myself to quit, but I can't seem to do it. The prospect is so scary, because i feel like I will hate the person i have or have not become. I'm 22 years old and studying politcal science, but i hate it and i often ignore my studies and escape into my own fantasy world, where life has more excitement and drama, but less responsibility. I am running out of actual life experiences and this scares me as well.
I hope there are people out there who can relate to my situation! I'd love to know that i'm not alone.
We can understand how you feel because we experience it ourselves.
My parents think I'm a failure because I can't cope with my studies. D:
thanks for replying!
i am literally lying in bed in tears right now because i can't get on top of my school work and the only way i know how to deal with it is by pretending i'm someone else, it's the only way i know how to make myself feel better but I know it's what made me feel like this in the first place.
Welcome to Wild Minds!
I feel the same way too. My character has more life experiences than I do. My life is boring for the most part.
