Hello, everybody! I recently realized that I suffer from malaptive daydream, and since the quarantine started I couldn't stop dreaming. When there wasn´t quarantine I could control it a little bit, since I wasn't at home for a long time, but now that I'm here I can't stop! I'm neglecting my exams and homework, I don't know what to do. I've been about confessing to my boyfriend (since he noticed that I was bad these last months) but I really don't know.
Usually my dreams are basically the same over and over again, (i.e. when I start dreaming, the scenario is the same and the situation is the same), I don't know if that is "normal" in dreams.
I don't really feel comfortable talking about what my dreams are about, I consider it a bit and pathetic.
If anyone has any advice you can give me, I'd really appreciate it.
Provided that the other person is understanding (or as understanding as they can be when they don't know what it's like), talking to other people about your MD can be very relieving. If you don't feel comfortable talking about it with people you know in real life yet, talking to others on the forum can be a great intermediate step.
You also don't have to share the actual content of your daydreams if you don't feel comfortable doing so. Most of us don't share the specific details. Personally, I've shared major themes of my daydreams here on the forum and with a few people in real life, but the actual storylines I've kept secret.
Don't give up what you want most for what you want now.
