Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I wonder what "normal people" think about. I see them driving in their cars, going to wherever they need to be and I wonder "Is it like a machine in their brain saying 'Drive to work, stop at light, go when it's green, mmmm I want a steak for dinner'." I know normal people have hopes and dreams but what is it like for them to just think about it a little bit? Are they thinking about the task at hand and does their mind wander only a certain distance until reality reels them back in? When does the reality call them back? I have tried to think like a normal person but I end up totally Vulcan-like. I know I'm not doing it right.
I am currently in a phase where I have accepted my daydreaming and will allow it only if it doesn't start to affect my work. Now that I've been exposed to this world where there's other MD'ers the normal folk are becoming "specimens" to me. They are kinda cute with their little determined actions and entertainments that must be given to them by someone else's imagination. Certainly I will become upset that my real life has suffered at the expense of my dream life and I will hope to figure out how to be normal. Then I'll realise that normal sucks and I want my DD life back. I'm sure a blog post will follow.
