I'm not going to lie, I'm extremely nervous to open up about my disorder, because I feel like a freak. I have been researching on and off for the past year on MD but only recently found all of the information in great detail and I KNOW now that I have it. I guess I just want to get to know everybody and find out what their worlds are like compared to mine.

Wow, what a terrible thing to go through. That would drive anyone further in an escape mechanism. It's hard to say what started it. I grew up in a mean, abusive (mostly verbally though some physically) family. I'm pretty sure I've been daydreaming since birth, though. It was already there & they just pushed me farther into it. I haven't seen them in many years & the daydreaming hasn't gotten better. I grew up in this alternate world & have never gotten used to this one. The consequences can be pretty severe. It's completely changed my reality. That's why it's so important to understand it & stop feeling like such a freak because i'm alone most of the time. This is just how I am. I'd like to get rid of the stigma one day. It's on my to-do list. This site is a big project. I want to help everyone I can. We can do it together.

Thank you soo much for making this site, it just helps to know that people are experiencing the EXACT same thing you are. It is insane that there are so many! It makes me feel more normal. I'm 17 years old and all of this started probably when I was in preschool. I had an imaginary friend I named Bobby and I would often daydream about different things with Bobby, but I always did and do know the difference between my imagination and reality. Although I have done it probably since I was 3 of 4, it has only been out of control since I turned 10. Since all of the research I have seen suggests that it is an escape from a bad occurance in the individuals life, I am assuming that I began over indulging and have since become completely engulfed in my fantasy because I was molested by my half brother when I was 10...I dunno, maybe some insight though.

Welcome! I know it's very difficult to open up about this. I've had this all my life & have known it was a problem for over 20 years. I only recently started admitting it about 3 years ago when I started feverishly studying it. Feel free to look at the forums. You'll find similar sentiments and a lot of information about people's experiences. No one will judge you here, and many find it liberating to open up, even a little. Do what you feel comfortable with. Let me know if you need anything. :)
