Hi... I am 55, like Gwen whose post so resonated with me. I have been a jumping and contorting daydreamer my whole life and was beginning to think I might be the only one!!
I have spent hundreds of hours researching my condition and this is the first time I have recognized my condition in the posts of others.
I spend hours having vivid daydreams and jumping up and down and shaking my hands and always have.
In situations where its inappropriate, like work, I sort of manage to control it but when a daydream comes along I get facial contortions and bite by hand instead of jumping. I know this is not cool but I am powerless.
After all the research I have done I am pretty sure I am not bipolar, ADD or psychotic.Nor do I believe I am an Aspie.
I am new to this site and I am hopeful I will be able to connect with others with this condition.
I cannot find a discussion board like on reddit ( yes I am a member of maladaptive daydreaming but there isn`t really anyone exactly like me on there).
This is the first time I have found anywhere where my symptoms are exactly the same as others.
Am I allowed to put my email up?? How do we connect with one another?
