Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I feel like i'm losing some of my friends because I almost always want to be locked up in my room with no distractions so I can daydream. And get me right, I want to have friends I feel kinda selfish for it but whenever I can be alone I usually want to. My other fantasy life is very important to me and I want to change it. I don't remember when I started making up another life in my head but I have an idea that it was when I was going through one of the toughest things I been through and I didn't have any friends then. I didn't do it on purpose, it just happened and I've just now realized it kind of a problem sometimes. I'll act out things or talk to myself and people will catch me and then I have to make up excuses for it. I've gotten better at controlling it in public though. My friends ask me to go out with them and I do sometimes but I usually come up with excuses for sleepovers because the idea of having a day without having time to daydream alone isn't that great to me.
