Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I've seen interesting reactions to the self-diagnosis of Maladaptive Daydreaming.
Not that you need to be a doctor to figure it out, more or less our lives are usually not THAT crappy

Daydreaming has definitely gotten a bit of a "lazy" stigma in recent times, because there are so many lazy kids who do nothing but think.
There's other words for adaptive daydreaming:
and here's a big one: Perceiving
*begins to recant*
But! Any time spent here talking about what we want to do is usually time spent not doing it.
