Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Not sure if this actually intertwines with MD or not, but would like some opinions/thoughts on it.
I have little to no desire to actually be around real people. To go out, socialize, impress, nothing. I also have no desire for any kind of emotional or physical companionship.
I have to remind myself constantly, to the point of writing it down sometimes, that I have to keep people in mind for certain things, else I will forget about them. People are like an obligation to me. Not only that, but I only "feel" something about five times a year, and when I do, it's always upsetting, even in what's supposed to be a happy moment, I just get overwhelmed because I don't know how to handle it. All other times I am passive to the degree that it frustrates those around me.
This isn't because I'm too stuck in my mind, or because I feel like "the only people I need are my characters". I honestly don't feel like this and the DD's are connected. It's just something that's developed over the past six or so years.
Was wondering if anyone else is like this, or maybe knows what it is?
