Does Daydreaming effect your head?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Silver Swan Sep 12. 3 Replies

Has MDD affected your physical health in any way, especially after doing this for years? I quit my daydreaming, because it's been a threat to my real life. Regardless, I feel this contracted feeling…Continue

People can see me MD

Started this discussion. Last reply by Ulaan Gom Jul 31. 1 Reply

Just when I think I'm coming out of MD, there are other signs that are still apparent. The other night, my family was watching TV and my sister noticed that I had a horrified expression on my face. I…Continue

This is so embarrassing, I was in the bathroom and my mom was calling me. As I shouted back and opened the door, I heard her words, "Are you talking to yourself or are you listing to me? I saw my…Continue

I have been a maladaptive daydreamer for years, but always wondered why I was so alone in reality. Fictional characters in my mind were always kind and agreeable to me, and living with them was…Continue

"I could've been in better shape and sharper if I hadn't. I have technical responsibilities and a tricky course to take, and I can't pull me head into anything. It's as if my brain was on vacation too long."

"I guess it all depends on your health. I think if I had daydreamed up to middle aged, I'd be in big trouble. I decided to quit while I'm still young."

Does Daydreaming effect your head?

Has MDD affected your physical health in any way, especially after doing this for years? I quit my daydreaming, because it's been a threat to my real life. Regardless, I feel this contracted feeling all around my head. It feels like a severely tired feeling (worn or tight discomfort), and sometimes it effects my productivity early in the day.See More

"Actually, it's the other way around for me. I daydreamed heavily for a good 20 years, but felt like I blew my life away, which is kind of scary. I only used my daydreams as an escapism from my real life. I didn't fit into the crowd and…"

Seeking more tangible things

Posted on August 16, 2018 at 11:07am 0 Comments

I literally spent nearly 20 years day dreaming about needing a boyfriend, but just today, I feel that was a scary thing to do.

I don't know many people who've done this! They basically just payed attention to others and got the partner they wanted, in a super outgoing manner. I wonder if maybe I blocked myself from people too much by diving into MDD. I was never attracted to many real people throughout my life, as they weren't as favorable as my MDD characters. So, I wondered…

Expressing yourself is everything

Posted on August 13, 2018 at 12:17pm 0 Comments

Everybody use to gossip about me and taunt me in school for a simple reason: I didn't talk at all. I was your shy awkward type who didn't ever fit in. I had a couple friends at a time, but not too many. Everybody else was extremely chatty, super outgoing and extrovert—"and neurotypical." I was the only student that had autism spectrum disorder, so I was challenged with communicating and interacting. So my school and college job experiences were rather traumatic. Even into my…

I discuss my life situations, but only in my MDD

Posted on July 23, 2018 at 9:02am 0 Comments

Whenever I want to express how I feel about my life situations, I discuss them with imaginary friends, because they actually listen to me without getting snarky. I find that real people don't understand my form of language or they're like "Then, do something something about it." Actually, real people wonder why I've gotten into that situation in the first place, or they can clearly see what's evident, snip at me what's going to happen and what I better do in future. It's as if in…

It shows

I don't know how you guys do it! I try everything to conceal my day dreaming. I will put on startled, worried, wary or perplexed expressions to hide it. I'll even move my eyes around and bite my lips. People will still look right at my eyes and maybe even into them! I guess, they still wonder what goes on in my head. If I make a slip up at home and even work, people will think, 'is she wondering?'
