Hi, guys, here is a question for you: do any of you have thought patterns that feel like daydreams but that aren't based on stories?  It sounds like most of you have daydreams that are based on…Continue

Overwhelmed :'(

Posted on September 10, 2011 at 2:34pm 3 Comments

I don't know what to do right now.  I want to know what is wrong with me.  I have spend hours in the last two months reading psychology websites, psychoanalyzing myself, and toying with the idea of seeing a psychologist.  Wednesday I finally gave up on self-diagnosis and decided to see a professional of some sort.  I thought the best place to start would be in my university’s counseling center, so I went there on Thursday to make an appointment.  I thought it would take a while to get an…

About a year ago, my sophomore year of college, I learned about MD and discovered this…

This post is about social anxiety rather than daydreaming, but some of you might be able to identify with it.

I have always suffered from mild social anxiety: shyness, insecurity, reluctance to start conversations, etc..  However, I am usually able to overcome this when I need to.  If I really need to talk to someone about something, I can usually force myself to start the conversation, and once the conversation gets going, it isn't that bad.

However, in the past few years…
