Aj replied to Maddie I's discussion Advice anyone?? How to deal with fictional characters...

Aj replied to David Burkett's discussion Another name for this disorder

I’m sure this has been discussed here before, but has anyone found that being on psych meds impacts maladaptive daydreaming? I recently started Zoloft, and I find that it’s a bit more difficult to daydream. I’m curious about others’ experiences with this.

Aj replied to maro's discussion Did your happy moments in daydreaming makes you happy?
"For me the happiness is temporary too and, like you and BlackUnicorn, it's the pain of going back to reality."
