Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Join Wild Minds network
Hi, I want to know what your dreams are about. Something like the real world that makes sense? Relieve nostalgia? Or an imaginary character? Or someone you love? When do you dream the most? I spend most of my time alone or have a lot of work to do that I do not like very much, and when I am offered my favorite job and I dream more of it instead of actually doing it. I depend on friends and colleagues, but often because of my financial situation alone, I want to be successful and hug my friends and spend a lot of time with them, but the real world is not like that for me, I do not like my nose in my dreams I have had cosmetic surgery and I am successful and I spend hours with my friends
Right, car driving has been not possible as you say is my condition uncontrollable lapse in concentration. to describe it is a condition where lot many thoughts come in mind as I feel I welcome them. I do not feel pleasure having this condition no more.
daydreaming itself becomes maladaptive when it starts interfering with one or more aspects of life (as do many other behaviours that are then classified as a disorder). essentially, it's not maladaptive if it does not greatly intrude in one's life, or the intrusion does not have any negative consequences, or is not considered an intrusion at all by the person experiencing it. it's a problem only when you engage in it despite not wanting to, or without realising it, possibly followed by feelings of guilt or self-directed hatred for doing something you swore you'd stop engaging in. compulsive daydreaming is still more than the normal amount people engage in, and may require help if one is so inclined. but it's not maladaptive. I feel this is a major misunderstanding when it comes to MDD
