I'm a 16 year old girl and since I was 11 I have been making up a whole different world in my head. back then my trigger was books, I would read one and think 'I could so make a better ending' and stare out windows or off into space and think up a whole new story and it would become part of the world in my head. now my trigger is music. when I hear music I drift off and I'm in my world, but I don't want this anymore. I want to start dating and having a normal life instead of looking over my shoulder and thinking that the people in my head are hiding and watching me,and being paranoid about people from my imaginary world coming and taking me with them...is this a condition? and if so are there medicines that could fix it? I really need help! also does anyone else experience this?!?! please help me!

  • I have a very active imagination, full of fantasy worlds since I can remember (I'm 30 now). Video games, books, movies served as fuel for elaborate worlds and highly developed, real-to-me characters. These fantasies help me cope when I'm bored of life. They're lots of fun. The more I do things that I enjoy in real life, the less I indulge in fantasy world. Maybe finding hobbies you like in real life would help. Hang out with grounded friends. See a counselor if it gets worse! :) Best of luck!
