Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I’m not even sure where to start. I’m new to all of this and I still question whether what I’m going through is actually MD but it only seems to make sense. I’m 23 and I think this started when I was around 10/11. I remember it soon after watching X factor and JLS had just lost. I started to act out certain things in my head and obviously anyone looking at it would think it was a little girl having a innocent crush on her favourite childhood band. But I Imagined and planned my life around the four boys actively pretending that we were all friends and that I was in this life with them. I’m 23 now and it changes with whatever obsession I’m going through at the time in my life. I’ve had multiple different versions of life in my head. A few names that I’ve done this with is Wentworth Miller, Eminem, Justin Bieber, Hero Fiennes Tiffin. I’m really worried that this will never go away and I will constantly act like I have something with these people and never be happy in my own life because I’m so content with acting all of these scenarios out. Does anyone have any advice. I’ve never seen any stories relating to celebrities so I’m starting to think I’m the only one.
