Maladaptive Daydreaming and Being Injured

I injured myself yesterday during gym class. I dislocated my knee. It popped back in right away, but in the process of popping out and then in I probably injured a ligament. This has happened before, but the doctor thinks that this time I probably injured a different ligament and might have chipped my bone. I had to go home early and go to the hospital. Today during school it was actually hard for me to daydream. Probably because adapting to being on crutches takes a lot of attention. I got an MRI after school. Ironically, it was actually fun because I could finally concentrate on my world and was able to stay there for a full half-hour. I got a lot done today (in what I call Imaginary Friend World)--I climbed a mountain and discovered a new species of butterfly, even though in Imaginary Friend World my knee is also injured due to me being attacked by a monster.

Thanks for the support, guys. :-) Today I was able to daydream a little bit. I was gone from my world for longer than usual, though, and a lot of my characters were NOT happy with me (the story usually goes on when I'm not there).

Oh, no! I'm sorry to hear you hurt yourself. I hope everything heals and goes back to normal quickly. :) I've injured myself and found it hard to daydream because it's almost impossible for me to sit still and do my scenarios. I have to be pacing (or at least driving).  But yeah, it's hard to be in the moment and fully enjoy it, especially if the injury affects something like pacing. I've limped around my room before so that I could still do my scenarios. I'd rather be in pain than not daydream! haha

I hope you feel better and congrats on finding a new species of butterfly. Yesterday i saved some children from a type of goblins. I hope your knee is better.
