Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Oh wow. I'm glad other people do this. I find DDs like this are brilliant because they are a nice breather from my usual characters and stories. I don't count them as DDs really, it's just my mind when it's in its normal state, DDing about boring things.
I know this sounds weird but sometimes I dd that I'm in the shower, washing my hair. It takes me forever to wash my hair in real life because it's so long and I'm a bit OCD about it. So I just DD about that and see it as like meditation. I feel so clean afterwards (I should probably just actually go in the shower to feel clean though.)
I am ALWAYS daydreaming about being interviewed as well. I'm sure I'm a narcissist, the amount of attention I give myself in my own head.
Yep, me to. Often when I'm driving, Like today i was driving along having a conversation out loud analysing a movie that was made from a book I love. I'm so glad for modern technology because in the past if anyone saw me talking to myself alone in my car they would think I'm nuts, but now they must just assume I have hands-free. lol.
The shower is also another place I am prone to this, but not out loud because other people would hear.
Or sometimes when I;m doing something like cooking, or drawing, I'll have a kind of ongoing monologue in my head as if I'm telling someone what I'm doing as I do it. Like I'm a teacher or something.
weird stuff, but so glad I'm not alone.
Yeah, I do this a lot. The only trouble is, I normally have one half of the conversation in my head and the other half out loud when I do this. My mum doesn't have MD (I don't think) and I once told her about having half a random conversation in my head and the other half out loud (although nothing that would give away my MD, I'm too much of a coward for that) and she just said "O-K then..." in that way people do when you tell them women live longer than men because women tend to wear brighter colours (I have done this as well!)
The good thing about this is that I understand everything I say, I laugh at all my jokes and inside jokes (I have a lot of these, especially from school. School is one funny place with the people in my classes...) and I don't interrupt myself and make myself forget what I was about to say, unless I start story-line-DDing.
Sometimes when my brain runs out of ideas of how my DD me can rebel today for stuff to do in my DDs, I describe my DD me instead. Sometimes I use some of the many simile/metaphor things I have made up for my character. Sometimes I just have a love scene between me and my DD boyfriend. This often involves my very very weird fetish (you probably don't want to know what it is), when he is telling me how he is in love with this guy but still loves me (don't know why, I mean the guy did try to kill him... with a stone... that my DD me nicknames 'The Vampire Stone'...), and once when... well, it didn't get to that point, but, as we were about to do something that I probably shouldn't say on this forum, my mum (in real life) called me for dinner. I made myself laugh with what I thought afterwards. If you want to know, message me. It was random.
I'll stop boring everyone to death now < P
