Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I've always wondered why I daydream so much. I've been daydreaming ever since I was about seven I think. There hasn't been any horrible trauma or any huge event in my life at that time that has caused be to become addicted to daydreaming. I wonder if maybe there is something in my genetics that makes me do this. It isn't a mechanism to deal with boredom or past trauma, my life is busy and I have things to do. I love the way I live except my chronic depression and maladaptive daydreaming are getting in the way. Does anyone know where this comes from? I can't think of a traumatic event or anything really that would make me become such a sad person. Is there something in my genetics or brain?
