Where wild minds come to rest
I found out about this sight in the magazine 'Scientific American Mind'. I was kind of surprised that I am not alone. I mean, I never thought I was the only one on the planet who daydreamed and fantasized so much but it never occurred to me that psychologists (and others) would studying it on a formal basis. The article in the magazine put a new twist on my condition (or mental illness). I just figured it was part of the psychosis or something and it may be, but thinking about MD as something independent never really entered my mind. I am 27 now (will be 28 in June) and ever since (at least) high school I remember my life being dominated by my fantasy world. I don't know why. I did not have a hard childhood (in fact I had an easy one) and was never bullied in school and never had a traumatic experience. When I was 18 I had a psychotic episode (non-violent, in case you were wondering) which involved very vivid fantasies of me being a member of a higher species. While the delusions are now under control I still have these vivid fantasies (which are even more vivid when I am off of my meds) about the possibilities surrounding the idea of a 'post-human' species. I also spend time daydreaming about relationships I could be having if I wasn't fantasizing so much. Then again, the relationships are a product of my fantasy and would be difficult for reality to top, or equal. I am thinking of making some of my daydreams into a screenplay, but of course I can't focus because I am too busy daydreaming!! A vicious cycle it is!
Well, that's my first blog. Admittedly I am interested in meeting people who fantasize about similar possibilities, but also people who fantasize about different things. If you can relate feel free to contact me or respond, especially if you are from my area (Bloomfield Hills, MI).
