Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
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. :)
