Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
So, I suppose this website is to help us not feel so alone. I can tell you that along with having MD, I'm also schizophrenic. For a long time, I did think I was alone, or at least very rare in my ability to imagine and create with my mind in such an extravagant way.
When I found out there were MANY people who do this, I must confess, I was a bit melancholy. I thought I was special, and now I feel typical.
I guess to me, being typical is the worst thing one can be...
I think possessiveness is the right word. It's MINE, nobody else's. I could see people faking that they have it if it becomes an official diagnosis, but that doesn't concern me. Fakers are fakers. They'll never have what I have, and I think it would be very difficult for someone without the propensity to imagine like we have to talk to one of us and keep up.
