Read about this place in a magazine. So happy to know I'm not alone!!! I have had mass daydreaming problems for as long as I can remember! I constantly find myself thinking about various fictional characters or settings - my own creations or other's - multiple times every day. I've been teased, made fun of, had concern from others, and even been put on medication because of it. But I just can't help it. And yes, like most of you, I do deeply enjoy my daydreams. They're so much better than reality! Luckily, I wouldn't say it really interferes with my life. I *can* still push myself to get things done and to interact with those around me. But some times are easier than others. 


I'm mostly concerned because my family and friends seem somewhat worried for me, and I'm starting college this fall. I'm also going on my first trip without my parents or any guardian in a few weeks (I'm eighteen, by the way). And I'm afraid I'll mess something up or not be able to get through college because of it. Grade school was already really hard with my day dreaming.


So I hope to find some loving support from others who understand. :)

Emotions in childhood are the strongest and the most vunerable.  As you get older you will gain more control so do not look back to grade school for a comparison.  Anyone capable of forming there own reality and creating storylines has creativity, intelligence and concentration.  The concentration part is what will help you most focus on whatever you are trying to learn, if you do not already know them, there are all kinds of  little tricks you can use to learn new material.  Try to set up a routine when you go to study that puts you in a calm state of mind even if you need to use a fantasy to get there.  Going to college should not be a problem, if anything everything you learn can be new material for a fantasy somewhere down the line.  Good luck.

Ha!  Imagine how I felt, seeing my name in big, red, print.  I'm surprised you all didn't hear me screaming.  That article had been in the works for over a year.

Yup! Scientific American Mind is the one.  :)

probably Scientific American Mind.  We're getting a lot of people from that article.  :)
