Hi everyone first of all let me say I am so happy to see so many like me sharing their experiences.
I am 37 year old married with 2 kids I very recently found out what exactly is the name of it. I won’t say it a disease as I have a different perspective towards it. Yes I been daydreaming and don’t even remember since how old all I remember daydreaming most of my day. Talking about any trauma in childhood all I can think of is very short period of bullying at school but I guess that got stuck as that’s the first thing which comes to my mind when I think of my school days. Being a teenager I faced lot of problems in concentrating but at my time there was no Google to help me out so I tried whatever I can to help myself.
By the time i started my business I started enjoying it so much like it was going side by side with my daily work as if I was multi tasking sometimes even like reading or sending my work emails I was same time day dreaming. All of my daydreams where short and never lasted more than a week or maximum month. Around 2 years back something happen within the family I don’t know which triggered something now I have 2 dreams which are stuck with me and always give the urge to continue or relive same.
Things that I have learned (maybe not same with everyone)
People facing same problem say it’s a curse or ruined their life for me it’s a healing in disguise where I don’t even have to pay anyone.
Control is the main thing if you can use day dreaming according to you which is very difficult it helps you when needed. I try to go for long walks such way I try keep myself fit even if I day dream.
I overcome loneliness through the rush you get from day dream .make whatever positive you can it will depend on your mind control.
Again these things helped me and maybe something else for others but its only you who have to find it out. Please feel free to talk I would love to discuss with anyone.
Even If you are reading this as a guest don’t be shy and try to talk.
I go on walks, too. Though it is mostly only for the purpose of daydreaming and procrastinating my real life responsibilities. It's nice to know someone can relate. Here if you'd like to talk and you're well.
Everyday maybe for 2 hours or just 30 min I go out for a walk and daydreaming constantly. But of course its not enough and I continue at home too. Im kinda happy actually it help me to get through somethings but when it keeps me away from the things I have to do, thats the part I dont like and makes me tired. I just need to control it little bit more...
