Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Honestly, I thought I was the only who did this. It has been a progression for me for the majority of my life, and I am in my early twenties. But lately this has been getting out of control. I will fantasize when I am with loved ones, and I will not be able to focus on them. Does anyone else do this, or is it just when they are alone?
I am also never alone. My DDs are always active so I never feel like I have any privacy. Does that sound crazy? My mind is so used to running wild, that even when I am by myself, I feel like I need to act a certain way to either entertain or accommodate the people I have in my head.
I found this site last night while researching help for these fantasies. I am not living in reality anymore. I would say that I am more enveloped in my mind than in my daily life. This isn't fair to my family (they don't know) and especially my husband who I have started to brush aside because I am too caught up in my own mind.
I want this to end.
