I found this website when I looked up ways that I could stop maladaptive daydreaming. It’s almost like a sort of drug to me and I CAN’T STOP ABOUT IT! It’s been for about a year now and it started in the beginning of lockdown.
It seems to me that it may have been triggered by the lonely hours at the start of corona. Like, I’d just wonder round my garden aimlessly about these characters and plots and things, and I still can’t stop.
It like pauses when I talk to someone however, or just carries on playing quietly at the back of my mind. But it begs the question, “what do normal people think about?” Because I’m addicted to daydreaming, no doubt about it, and it sometimes even continues in my dreams, and I can’t function unless I’m dreaming about these characters, but I don’t understand what ordinary people think about without these daydreams.
I try to remember what I thought about before I started maladaptive daydreaming, however it’s really difficult because I just want to be daydreaming again so I stop. However I came on here just to see if I can relate to anybody so, hi.
