Where wild minds come to rest
So i'm 22, and for all of my life i've considered myself to have an overactive imagination - something in which i've never fully admitted to anyone. i will, however, admit that it caused me problems on numerous occasions, but i did my best to withold my day dreaming as much as possible and to seem as social as possible (even though most times i'd rather be alone just lost in my thoughts).
but now i've found this forum, and i'll admit i'm relieved to see that there are so many people on here that are in the same situation i'm in. i've felt like my md was simple childishness that i simply hadn't matured or grown out of and as a result i've been battling against it; only really zoning out when i'm alone with nothing to do. but now that its something real i worry that i might use this as a handycap and allow myself to abandon the social life i worked so hard to create.
i know this sounds alittle crazy, my thoughts are all over the place. i guess, what i'm really trying to ask is, now that you have been self-diagnosed, have you noticed any changes? has your md gotten worse because you can now identify it with people? has this now become a way in which you identify yourself, like how someone with adhd would?
bare with me as this is my first blog, and thanks much for reading. :]
