"Hi Camoran,  I understand what you mean - initially it was the stress that the intrusive and negative DD had caused me to wake up and see how this is impacting my overall mood, emotional and even physical state. Becoming aware of how ambivalent…"

"Hi Martha,  Yes, I have definitely relapsed during lockdown. Being at home for such a long period of time has caused me to indulge more in daydreaming especially as I have had not much to do to break up my day. I have noticed that it comes more…"

"Our experience has always been a mix. We experienced a lot of sustained trauma early in life so our daydreaming was both escapism and what we now understand to be our body spirits trying to make sense of painful experiences we were struggling to…"

"It's turned out different for us. We managed to shift it into a positive feedback loop that helps us self-actualize in shared reality. But I understand that's not the norm, and I think with the level of shaming most people experience with…"

"The worsening you experienced over the course of a decade was the only way it could go if left unchecked. At its core it's a self-perpetuating feedback loop of simulating scenarios in your head which allow you to experience feelings that the…"

"That is a very interesting post and resonates with me. I am a lot older than you, but I have come to a lot of the same conclusions gradually that you seem to have come to fairly young. That the daydreams are a way to express strong emotion that…"

L.solace replied to Aprelle Neal's discussion Negative Daydreams
"Hi Aprelle,  Yep, definitely me. If anything the drastic change from positive escapism to negative daydreaming is what caused me to find ways to help myself. For this reason I am grateful it did become negative as I  have become super…"

L.solace replied to Jessica Ballantyne's discussion I make faces when I daydream
"I've experience this too - making faces while daydreaming, sometimes I can't help but whisper in response to someone in my daydream. I've been caught several times and it has been soo embarrassing. I think because of the duration I…"

L.solace commented on Oliver B's blog post I'm making myself laugh thinking about it

Hi all,I am new to this forum, it has been funny looking at all the posts as a lot of people have experienced maladaptive daydreaming in the same way I have.
