Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Alright, so...here's the deal. I know that there is the "idealized self" aspect to MD, but have you ever had...14 different versions of yourself? Kind of like you make characters, but well, with yourself I guess. The thing was, that the other versions of myself were never really...created by me. They kind of just...appeared. Although this is also how I get most of my characters...you know, they kind of just...appear. What different between the character and the other "mes" is that if I tried to make a new "me", they wouldn't stick. The only thing that really bothers me is how the other versions of myself multiplied. It started off as 3...and then 1 more. And they just seemed to multiply in random. This recently stopped, but when it was over I realized they all represented an aspect of myself...I'm starting to wonder if some forms of MD are controlled by the subconscious. They were all different, but they all looked like me. I honestly didn't realize the similarities (personality wise) of myself before I broke it down...but after I figured it out they stopped multiplying. I knew that daydreaming can be a form of self expression but...I didn't think it could be this literal. Hahahahaha...
