Where wild minds come to rest
I've been daydreaming excessively and I began to worry about it so I looked it up and came across MD (Maladaptive daydreaming). I started out just imagining me talking to someone a friend from school, neighbor, family member usually a person I would see the next day. I imagined what our conversation would be like. This wasn't bad, BUT THEN it got so bad that they were no longer conversations, but a whole other world! With many characters and different events. I would laugh, cry, argue and for long periods of time. This was all in my head right until I Started Whispering and soon enough I WOULD ACT IT OUT! I tried to stop, because I was FREAKING MYSELF out and I did for a while.
My will-power eventually crumbled and I started to get up really late. I was awake, but I stayed in bed daydreaming for 3-4 hours. I tried to keep it all in my head so I began waking up late everyday for a while and I thought it was okay, YOU KNOW I AT-LEAST WASN'T ACTING IT OUT. Then I couldn't sleep, because my brain wouldn't shut off and guess what I was doing in my head. Yup, you guessed it I WAS DAYDREAMING! So I wasn't just waking up late know because of my daydreaming I was also not falling a sleep either, because I was daydreaming. I would eventually fall asleep out of exhaustion.
I kept this up for a while, but what was left of my will-power is know gone and I'm ACTING OUT AGAIN!!!
I want to stop, but I don't know how. Almost anything triggers it music, books, movies, friends, problems. PLEASE HELP any advice will be appreciated.
Do you also daydreaming? Please tell about your experience; how you started and how are you copping with it.
