Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Ok, so i've been having "Harry Potter" related daydreams for years now. I of course have other types of daydreams, but HP has been the one consistent daydream that i just can't seem to shake. I went without watching the movies, reading the books AND looking up HP stuff on the computer for around 6 to 7 months straight.
When i was without it, i felt good and bad at the same time, you know? Like i was happy that i was pushing through, but on the other hand i was still daydreaming because i had watched the movies so many times and re-read the books so many times that i didnt really need them to daydream.
But now i've slowly started to read the books and watch a little of the movies again. And you know what, it kinda feels good. Like i get it out my system when i just watch a movie or read a few pages. But i don't know what to do. What if i start reading and watching them again and my MD gets worse???
I have a few health/social problems that i know aren't going to get resolved in the next year. so i know this year is not gonna be an easy year for me.
And sometimes i want to write down what i'm DDing about, like fanfiction, but would that be too weird? Too obsessive? Has anyone had a DD obsession like this and what helps?
