Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I've had this M.D. since as far back as I can remember.
In a way, I'd be afraid to stop the daydream because then I think it would never come true. And since I'm so unhappy with my life, its the one thing that keeps me calm. Lately I've been totally engrossed in it and I'm getting absolutely nothing done because all I want to do is sit and dream.
I've actually had the same daydream since I was at least 17 years old (I'm 50 now) and its just adapted as I get older to my own age. But its the same place, same situation, etc. When I get bored with one way its going, I just change the direction.
Anyone else do this?
It seems the older I get the more engrossed I tend to get. I have to tell myself to refocus.
