Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
wow,im not sure if you will all think me crazy asking this question.
its difficult for me to explain what i want to know,so i will explain my experience.
when i was younger(around 12),way too old though for the kind of stuff i describe i had a kind of hobby,obsesion or passtime,whatever you want to call it.i was living in the time of bouncy balls.you know the small rubber blls we used to play with.
i deided(or maybe someone else),it doesnt matter it stuck,that they were alive.living things,trhey had names,personalities etc.....and im pretty sure that i modelled them on my different personaliti8es or traits.
it w3asnt just a fly by the night thing.although at first other friends played the game they soon grew out of it where i didnt.it lasted many years till around 15.certain ones (namely sindy and perky) even got married,dress,party the whole thing.well i say 15,but even passing my b.balls to my sister at age around 19 caused me anxiety,pain and loss.
i suppose i need to end it there as this could go on forever.i just want to know if any of you have had similar instances in childhood,or even later.
love and best wishes to you all,sue .xxx
