Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Today, I went for training. Well this girl who's also taking the same job as me was in my class. She had a disorder. It was pretty obvious since she'd always get anxious when ever she heard a loud noise. Then she would start moving her hands back and forth really fast. She told the teacher that she won't stab anyone or anything but she is diagnosed with mental disorders. What upset me is the fact that the teacher completely mocked her in class, gave her dirty looks throughout class and said "I wouldn't let you take care of my kids" and asked her why she got the job in the first place. Her answer was that she had anxiety attacks so she wasn't too unfit for the job. What upset me is how ignorant people can be. The teacher, who was supposed be a mature adult was completely insensitive towards her and before making a remark like that, he didn't even bother to know what was actually wrong with her which he should have done. Suffering from MD, I was sort of offended too. Anyways, I was observing her and I noticed that despite her disability, she was a pretty smart and confident girl. She answered most of the questions that were asked and it looked like she had a pretty high IQ. I know that it isn't being around people that cause this anxiety but it looks like loud noises and things around her are one of the main causes. So I know that she couldn't have avoidant personality disorder so I was wondering does anyone of you know what disorder she could have? I'm just really curious. I was also wondering if anyone of you ever felt neglected or have been ridiculed for any mental conditions and mental disorders that you have? I could be MD or something else. I just wanna hear your story.
