Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I am new to this and came across this site a few days ago.
I stumbled across a post from another member about love fantasies.
When I meet a man who is good to me , I too start building up fantasies about the person in my head. I get obsessed over the person.
I over think /fantasise and make myself fall in love with the person. In addition , I want the person to fall in love with me.
This lead to a lot of heartache for me.
I have lived with this for close to 35 odd years. I didn’t know that other people felt the same. And also , I didn’t know that there was a name for it.
After doing a little bit of online research , I realised that I probably have maladaptive daydreaming.
In a way , I am glad that there is at least a name to what I feel. I don’t feel alone.
I hope some one can share their thoughts with me.
