Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I'm new to this site and not really sure how i works yet. I've had md for the past ten years and it seemed to take over my life completly more or less straight away. I thought I was the only person in the world who had this problem. I find that music triggers me to dd. when i first started doing it i felt it was the only way i could keep my sanity and that when things got better in my real life I would be able to just stop. However that was not te case ,ten years down the line i feel as though I am addicted to my day dreams. It is so hard because if somone is addicted to alcohol or smoking or what ever then there would be ways of beating that addiction as hard as it may be for them. However with md it is something that is in your mind so it makes it that much harder to give this addiction up. As well as this i have created such a high standerd of happyness in daydreams that my real life could never compair.
I'm so happy to have found this site, it seems really strage though to be writing this and saying that for me day dreaming is a problem I have as up untill now i keep thinking well i will just do it for another couple of months and then stop but i always just end up making excuse as to why I can't.
I'm sorry for talking so much it is just a relief to put this into words as like many people on here i've never told anyone about this. If anyone ever wants to talk to me then feel free!
P.S sorry for any spelling and grammer mistakes!
