Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I am begining to suspect, I may be the oldest member currently attached to this Maladaptive Dreamer. Good news, finally I am leading the curve on something! It must be a challenge to build an interactive group from a selection of people who by their very defination do not interact with other real human beings, at least not well or on an emotional level. There are of course exceptions but in general I think that relationships that result in positive emotional exchange are hard to come by, varying from rare to extinct. The nice thing about daydreaming is you can have positive relationships any time you want, and recieve all the warm and fuzzy emotional rewards without any risk. Except for the few unpleasent side effects attached to people who do this as a lifestyle, it would be an enviable state. We would be giving lectures to the individuals who need to learn to daydream or to do it better. There would even be charities to help the poor unfortunates who are stuck living in reality.
