Where wild minds come to rest
Day 1 - I've been Maladaptive Daydreaming for over four years now, and I know that it's time to stop. I've recently been able to improve my life, but am facing some obstacles right now and want to clear my mind and focus on improvement. Today I spent a huge amount of time in depression and daydreaming, trying to escape my current circumstances and overlooking all the blessings in my life. I truly believe that all our lives have so much value, value beyond our imagination, and that we should try our hardest to recognize that value. So right now, I will take small steps, starting off by forgiving myself for all the mistakes I have made, and calmly take on whatever I need to do.
Negative feelings can effect your head health. My head will start to feel weak and exhausted, and like it has no mass left. Then one day, I began to glow with positivism and feel so good, so my head actually went back to normal. I always thought it had to do with cognition, but it's actually linked to anxiety and depression. Bad feelings can actually contract the brain. So don't freak out that much, just start to feel happy. It does help when you stop daydreaming too. Maybe when your feeling bad about the way things are going, you'll start to daydream to get away, but then you'll wake up again and see your reality for what it is. So it will give you mixed up feelings and your head will go all funny or you'll feel super tired for no reason. What I do is meditate to think positive thoughts and gather up positive feelings, that way my body relaxes. Your head will feel that calming relief.
