I am how active this site is but I came here because I want to know more about MD for a memoir. Hello my name is Kat. I have been creating characters my entire life which has led to some psychiatric confusion but I've been an active MDer for the last 15 years. It started with a book I wrote. I didn't want the characters to die and I suck at writing fiction so I just let them live in my head. I sort of had to train my brain at first to stay in world but now I am in my head all the time. I have three active worlds at the moment. One about a school for young clerics who train to hunt demons. 12 years on that one. One that is more like reality but a lot more fun, Ive been following the descendants and friends of one man for also 12 years. And then I have one I created about 2 and half years ago which mostly just follows one person and his weird life. I keep spreadsheets and timelines of characters because I have hundreds and it get confusing. When i get bored I headhop to someone else for an adventure. I spend a lot of my time doing this and dont like to be social or leave my bed because I just want to be there. I am open about these worlds and often joke about them on facebook. I tell pretty much everyone who seems interested and they are never really put off by it. Within the last week my mom, who from I inherited depression and anxiety with delusions/hallucinations, also has had an active fantasy world in her head for decades. It seems to be hereditary, in my case. I think its held me back some and definitely socially stunted me but its my coping mechanism. I hope to talk to some of you and here your stories. Thank you.
