Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I feel as if I should introduce myself. My name is Luna, I live in the US and I am a teenager.
I started to daydream when I was 9 or 10, and at the time it was harmless. Just something to do on long car rides. But it evolved into something much more than that. It began to consume my life. I began to daydream for hours at a time, and I could no longer focus on anything because of my daydreaming. I drove away all of my friends because of daydreaming, and I started to question my sanity. For years, I thought I was a freak, I thought I was the only person in the world that had to deal with this. But then I came here, and it is so great to know that I am not alone, and there others like me.
MDD is still my nightmare, it is still a trap and a cage for me. But I am slowly coming out of it. The support here is great, and I am so glad to be able to talk to people about this.
