I have been an MD’er my whole life. I thought I was crazy. I thought I was wasn’t normal. I don’t pace or wave my hand. My right leg won’t stop jumping. Music and Movies are the definite trigger for the daydreaming.
I couldn’t stop daydreaming even if I tried and wanted to. For years I looked online and typed in “Adults with Imaginary Friends”. All that came up was how to teach your child that they aren’t real. Nothing pertained to me and what I was going through at a middle aged adult. I don’t know what causes this. Is it hereditary? Is it from severe childhood trauma? Is it something select that just happens to people with no explanation? Does it have to do with God or Demons? I don’t know.
I thought I was the only one doing this. I thought I was alone. I kept thinking there has to be others but how do I find them. Last year I found out there were others worldwide and I was overjoyed. I was no longer alone and there are people who understand me for me, and who can identify with my mind.
The purpose of this site to let others know that they are not alone and to give people a chance to speak out on thier experiences and try to solve this phenomenom that we live through on a daily basis. People who are not like us, will not, can not, and in some cases do not want to understand. In many cases I was an easy target because of the odd behavior that I cannot control.
