Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
well from what i can find online for symptoms, I seem to fit it pretty well.
I sometimes daydream and then I realize that an hour or 2 goes by
I pace and usually daydream while music is on
Sometimes it gets in the way of getting to sleep
And it just gets in the way of doing stuff.
It's almost like some elaborate novel. It started out in 3rd grade with incorporating books/tv characters into it,
then as i got older, it branched into real people
It's just an alternate life almost
I love reading, so it's like Harry Potter meets Artemis Fowl, or tv shows like Charmed or Smallville have ideas I like that somehow get incorporated into it
probably 8 I guess,
And I'm 18 now.
I just wanted to finally figure out why it was going on. When I was younger I even tried writing it down for a book. A lot was plagerized because some ideas came from different sources, but one book i typed was about 130 pages
And that was when I was probably 10 or 11
I had imaginary friends
and there was this show on tv called "Blues Clues" where the guy would jump into photos, and I would sometimes want to jump into stuff too,
I understand obviously that all of this is just fiction and fantasy, but it's there, a sort of "what if" situation
i'd fight with my mom and we had horrible relationship ties, but this didn't come from that. I'd just storm away. This stuff started when I was bored
I'd just imagine stuff from a tv show i had just seen, or a book i had just finished reading
Find a cure for myself?
I am now
It allows me to travel, I'm usually more confident, and I am already successful
And I have novel-like adventures with it that're more interesting than usual day to day boredom
well it has fantasy elements in it though, so it makes it not ever possible obviously. But yea it's almost like a "what if" double life idea of something more interesting
Not that I can think of. It's just a different thingthat's more adventurous like what you'd see in a movie or book
sometimes, other times it just kind of happens.
well it just starts happening and i get distracted by it, and it interferes. Mind wanders and it just starts right on up
a little of it is interesting, but it makes it hard to focus on real goals and work
completely. it's not anything productive for me.
I kind of know i'm doing it, but I go into a sort of different mode, like when I'm driving on a highway and there's nothing interesting around
yea it does
so wait I'm hypnotizing myself?
So what should i do? see a hypnotist or what?
ok then. well i know my goals and such it's just that this gets distracting from being as productive as i could be
oh ok. well, thanks for the information :)
i sleep regularly 8 hours if i can
ok, will do then.
I'll try it
