Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I started therapy a week ago. I'm wondering if it has had some sort of impact on the way I get in touch with my emotions. Or perhaps, my focus (or lack thereof) has been on different distractions. I've probably spent way more time on the internet. Although, I've done my fair share of work. It's odd. Maybe my interactions at work have really fulfilled my need for emotional validation and attention, which daydreaming usually fills. I have sort of felt this void for daydreaming, but I fill it with more internet time, it seems. :) We'll see how long this lasts. I don't want to keep transferring my coping mechanism to something else. With time and therapy, hopefully I'll be in touch with my emotions enough that I won't really want to daydream. Better yet, I will actually finish my stories for all my daydreaming scenarios and get them published!
