Oh yes!I think maladaptive daydreaming was also facillitated by TV shows that I connected to on some child level....and I wished that character had been me
I so relate.I was still thinking about how that scenario was what I should have had....and that character was traumatized and ended up with a happy ending......
I find grounding so hard! I am finding it hard to make lists of things to do and I am finding it hard to do things.Grounding techniques and making lists of things I have to do,
Gosh that's an idea.staying away from shows that get me engaged in trauma or wishing my life were different,
It's a good idea....and getting up and moving out of the bed with a plan for the day.......helped tremendously.
Yes that's a good one.Paying attention to triggers when it happens.....has helped.
I am retired, and as a result of a "free do what I want to do/accomplish schedule" I have had to set boundaries with myself....the part of me that would rather not be here, TV binge, and grove in bed all day long. I think communicating with those parts that don't like reality has been a huge help....and acknowledging their needs in a more positive way-finding fun grounding things to do rather than dissociate and when I reward myself for a good day, I do somethings that make those parts feel included and something that part of me enjoys.Oh yes!
I so relate.
I find grounding so hard! I am finding it hard to make lists of things to do and I am finding it hard to do things.
Gosh that's an idea.
It's a good idea.
Yes that's a good one.
I am struggling with doing all these things.
