I'm called cakie or Lili online. I'm interested in many fandoms and styles. I particularly enjoy fashion, learning new languages, and science along with computer sciences! I've most likely dedicated over 3/4 of my life to pacing. No, kidding! But you all probably get that completely. I have never, in my life, ever related to anything more than what is listed and found in these forums. I've always thought that I just never grew out of playing pretend. As for how I realized that I have this disorder, I was just working on a workout plan and wondered if all the pacing I did could be beneficial for my calories burned count. I saw a post on Quora where someone mentioned "Maladaptive Daydreaming" and me, being the super sleuth I am, looked into it. Just reading the symptoms I was laughing-- out of genuine amusment, and worry. I was afraid that I might have a legitimate disorder. Or worse, a legitimate disorder that no one would take seriously. Then I found a link to this place. So, now I'm here! Nice to meet all of you. I won't go too in-depth about my daydreams because I feel like sharing them in a dedicated thread would be better.
