Where wild minds come to rest

I found out about this site from the latest edition of Scientific American Mind.  As I read the six-page article about obsessive daydreamers I became overwhelmed with emotion. I've dealt with my excessive daydreaming for years. I thought I was the only one. Seriously. I created an elaborate fictional world with fictional characters I've grown to care about. For the last few years, I've fought to rid myself of those need to drift away from this fake world. Needless to say, it's not been easy. I haven't succeeded at all. I spend hours of every day drifting away, while I'm pacing in my apartment, driving, shopping in the mall or sitting at my desk. I want to stop. I want to enjoy my real life for once. I'm glad that I found this community because I'm comforted knowing I'm not alone.

Hey ECP! You are not alone.
I try to fight it too, everyday, every minute actually. I am trying not to daydream as I write this. :/
