Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I had the loveliest dream last night. It was so pleasant that I wished I could have kept living in it forever. I had a dream that I was daydreaming one of my old story lines, but instead of just being able to see it in my head, I could really see it in front of me. It was like being inside a movie and being able to watch everything up close. I could really feel all the emotions, and they were so beautiful.
It was a love story. I have this old story line where a father gets into an accident and is in a coma for many years. His children grow up without him, praying every day that he'll wake up. After 9 years, he does, and after he does he falls in love. This time, in my daydream within my dream, I changed it. I made it so he was already engaged to his new love when he went into the coma. He woke up after a few years and had amnesia. He couldn't remember her, but the instant he saw her he fell in love with her again. He went home and lived with her and had to learn about his life all over again. She was patient and gave him his space, but he was so deeply in love with her that he didn't need it. They were blissfully happy even though he had no memory of her. I got to watch him loving her and learning his life all over again as if I were right there. I could have stayed in that dream forever.
Anyway, it was so beautiful that I had to share.
