Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Recently Yahoo! picked up an article about maladaptive daydreaming featuring our fearless leader, Cordellia. I'm 100% behind anything that gets our issue out in the open and raises awareness. But it makes me feel like my bubble will be burst. When I first found out that there were other people like me I was so relieved! Then I felt like I had to change from being an oddball to being part of a group. That was a new experience. It's still foreign for me to feel like I "belong" somewhere but I am definitely one of many now. I worry that someone I know in real life will recognize this condition in me and I'll have to either deny or admit to it. Sometimes I feel like it would be a relief to explain why I'm so different but other times I want to keep my secrets. Mostly I'm glad to know that someone like me doesn't need to feel alone when they're growing up with MD.
