Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I wonder if anyone else with MD struggles with this, too, but sometimes I have trouble finding something to think about. Like how an artist has an art block. Majority of the time I can easily find a story to entertain me, and when I do I'll often spend hours daydreaming just about it, and sometimes I'll even continue it for days or even weeks afterwards. But every now and again I just feel kind of drained where I can't think of anything. I still have this, kinda like an intense urge, to go back to daydreaming, but there's nothing for me to think about. I've been having this recently, and it's really bothering me. I noticed that this normally happens when I'm at my lowest, though, and when I feel most unmotivated from doing anything besides sleeping. It's weird, though, because daydreaming has always been like an escape for me, but it's hard sometimes. Luckily I've found something else that I enjoy and can focus on for a few hours that'll keep me busy, but just like everything else, it gets boring after a while and I end up just going back to bed in the middle of the day.
