Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Hyper-empathetic people feel what they see happen to others. This may explain my negative daydreams. I have noticed if I look at the story line or theme of them, I can usually go back to a news story or book or something invovling the mistreatment of women that lines up with it. I try to avoid these news stories but they are everywhere. People post photos of battered women on facebook, stories in national geo about forced marriages, rapes, women losing rights all over the world. Then these things play out in my DDs, with me feeling the emotional pain. I wish there was a way to desentasize myself. I'm so tired of the depression, the tears.
