Hey there! im a 16 year old girl based in New Zealand, I've had MD for about 2 years now, Im not diagnosed but every single symptom points to me exactly and describes what i've been experiencing right to the T. Im really happy to have myself reaching out and meeting others who experience what I have for so long now. I do panic that it'll deteriorate, I already struggle with motivation and such so the urge to daydream can be frustrating in my life. It dosent tamper with my grades which is what Im thankful for though so I hope to grow with it instead of against it. For the longest time I figured it was an over active imagination, now I know theres an actual term for it and that im not some weirdo on my own about this. I usually daydream about characters I illustrate and create or scenarios with myself and people at my school in. I cant do it without music though, it fits in as either background noise to a scene I make up or it has lyrics which I lip sync the words to pretending Im the character saying them. Instead of using other characters I like to create my own paths and routes for either my own characters, movie characters or myself. Im familiar with moving about as well however I stick to sitting on my bed and dont ever get up during my day dreaming as it feels odd for me.
I've taken a quiz and found im at the Mild stage of MD so im not overly concerned about it just yet, though I felt It would be a good idea to come onto this platform to maybe share some of my dreams and or experiences. Maybe even make some friends my age who can experience similar dreams to my own or make their own characters to portray in them. I feel its developed from stress and quite possibly depression though I will note I never got a diagnosis, due to me being younger and not even knowing what it was at the time and now Im not really sure where I sit in terms of the mental state of things. But im content with daydreaming most of my day away when I havent got much to do, its a time filler i've noticed, as I now wake up earlier than I need to do MD before school, then afterwards I do it at home.
However Im wildly uncomfortable with anyone watching me since its a private experience (plus moving around, lip syncing from the outside with no music would be extremely odd and even laughable in my case) so I keep my door shut to have my own time would love to hear if anyone else has a similar time with what im going through! Thanks for reading
i can relate. music helps set the scene for my daydreams as well and i have to be alone because they're so personal and private to me. i don't really advice to give since i've just recently accepted my daydreams as something i'm struggling with, but im here if you ever want to talk about anything. hope you're well!!
