Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I agree there's a big difference between compulsive daydreamers, maladaptive daydreamers, and just creative people............but it feels like we're all on a big continuum, so the lines between which is which are really blurry at best. I'm not sure it matters where his focus is to be honest. Not all imaginative thinkers are maladaptive daydreamers, but all maladaptive daydreamers are imaginative thinkers. It seems logical to include them in anything about imagination. My daydreams aren't very visual, but they're imaginative and enriching in other ways. Anything that starts a dialog about imagination can only help us. How many of us suffered in silence while judging ourselves as crazy before we learned about this? The thought of more people suffering is unbearable to me. If we can get the dialog going a bit more then more people are bound to look it up and find out about this. It could help them feel better about themselves.
Sean, if there's anything else I can do to help in any way, please let me know.
I'm new here and just found out about all this myself. I've been dealing with this my whole life. I'm 47. I don't remember when it started because I don't remember a time when I didn't do this. It's taken over so much of my life now. I realized it was starting to effect reality and actually it has been for some time I just didn't know that until now. That realization prompted me to start doing some research and I found this site. I'm so glad I did. I think this is going to change my life.
I would love to help out in anyway I can. I need to find a way to deal with this issue and I think I could learn a lot this way and hopefully help someone else in the process.
I would be happy to help, but am not sure how to e-mail you. Do I reply in box that comes right after your initial request?
Hi there...I would love to answer any question you have about daydreaming.
I consider it my responsibility as a daydreamer to spread the word about it. I don't think many people know that this goes on in our heads.
wow that would be so fantastic if this does get realeased! Thankyou Sir for doing this. Anything you need just ask.
