This will be my first time talking about MD with others, I'm looking forward to reading people's experiences and sharing some of mine. I'm exactly when I first started daydreaming but I don't remember a time when I didn't. I never had an overly traumatic childhood however I've always said I feel as though something is missing, maybe a spot of childhood amnesia. I have a mixture of visual and conversational daydreams, depending on what I'm doing or where I am at the time. The visual daydreams are of course much more consuming. I daydream about anything and everything including full on fantasies that have intense and ongoing storylines. My conversational daydreams involve me talking to someone, usually my therapist (who only exists in my head) she's probably the most beneficial character I have. I enjoy daydreaming a lot, I have no idea what I'd do without it. Unfortunately it comes with major consequences, I lose hours that feel like 10 minutes causing me to put myself in uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous situations. I now suffer with back problems, shoulder problems,sciatica. I've accidentally hurt myself on multiple occasions, by hitting things, hitting myself, walking in to doors/walls, falling from severe leg cramp ( I rock on one leg, very inconvenient and bizarre )..but I can't stop. Eep. Maybe someone will see this and share any similarities if you can relate to anything here?
