I can relate to a lot of it.

I daydream a lot. This sometimes causes me to lose awareness of my surroundings. It can be a problem while driving - but don't worry, I now only drive when I absolutely have to, which is about once every two years. When I was younger, I used to imagine many fantasy worlds. At one point, I made up an imaginary island and drew a map of it. I have also often imagined myself becoming famous and admired. For most of my life, I have not been very skilled socially. I have however, followed mainstream schooling and got a university degree. I didn't use to understand that different people have different perspectives on things, so I obviously couldn't empathise. I only started to grasp that different people view things/feel/think differently after I realized I was autistic. I have spent a lot of my life in pain too, and have had episodes of depression.

Most of my family do not understand social realities very well either, due to their autism, and they live in their half-fantasy version of the social world.

I'm still angry at people who treat me poorly. I wish that I could forgive them as easily as you do.


My escape into a fantasy world is all because of all the mean, judgmental people out there. They either don't understand or don't want to understand. My imaginary friends understand me better than real people.

This is really interesting to read. I always thought i was odd doing this or having this, but turns out.... there's more!

I learnt that in my fantasy world, i learn to deal with real life situations, only then in my own pace .... All story lines are connected to the more subtle psychological things happening in my life and its a place to practise and become aware of ego self, really. If i didn't have those fantasies, i'd go crazy, coz i wouldnt know how to release all my energy. Usually the need for fantasy is larger when i'm stressed. I dont see it as an escaping from reality thing like many people think, but a dealing with reality thing. because of my "second life", i'm able to live my regular life with alot more ease, alot more balanced and with alot more skills. i really benefit from it.

and its quite relaxing and entertaining aswell :)
My avatar is actually one of my fantasy characters :')

oh good I'm not the only one who did/still does this. My fantasy world kind of works like TV with a billion channels :lol: if there's something on my mind that's bothering me. I'll change the channel to something more amusing to lower the stress. Say if there's a news bulletin saying there's a chance of sensory overload as a result of the kids in the daycare center i work at fighting at the art table (and really that happens every other week...GOD!! :x ) I'll change the channel in my mind to this reality show Starring my fave band Tokio Hotel called Tokio Hotel TV (in real life it's on youtube but in my head it's a reality show...Wishful thinking much! :lol: ) or I'll change it to a program called "The Day Off Show" where a camera follows me around on my day off and watches me get errands done around town. (this show is pretty lame sadly :( )
Also my "marriage" to my crush Bill Kaulitz is somewhat of an escape from reality. It helps me heal from the lonliness.
As a kid I used to have imaginary friends which i think could possibly be a thing for AS kids since as children we don't blend in well to the NT school setting. I went to NT public school until I graduated High School and endured plenty of bullying in middle school and some teasing in High School. I also had behavior issues in elementary school. I still remember my second grade teacher locking me in the media closet for having a meltdown and my fourth grade teacher kicking me out of the room for freaking out about getting a bad grade on something. Even my girl scout leader would lecture me after the pledge of allegiance because I put my helmet away (we had a bike thing in third grade) Speaking of third grade, At christmas time our teacher (who was a special ed teacher who taught grades 3-5 out of a portable) set up our desks like a christmas tree and I was the angel of the tree (for a while)
But then I did something to make my teacher rip that halo off of me and I got upset for it (so upset that I was hanging onto to the teacher!)
Probably the main reason I feel I have to use this method of comfort is because no one understood me as a kid when I was growing up and I feel no one understands me now. Sad rly. I feel the only people who can understand me are those who I can surround myself with inside my happy place. Outside my happy place, it's nice people all the way because I want the comfort of knowing I'm not a burdon.

I've lost two and a half years of my life, because of the way, I let that person get to me. Ignorance is bliss.

I have also been living in a fantasy world a lot lately, as I talk to myself sometimes as if I am someone else, and I have really got into the world of roleplay especially to do with Harry Potter, where I can be different characters as if I am actually at Hogwarts, completing lessons and homework, playing quidditch etc and I can spend hours doing it and I would rather be doing that than being outdoors and trying to socialise with people.

I've had my own fantasy world with an ongoing storyline for at least 10-15 years. Even before that I fantasized a lot.

I don't pretend I'm someone else though. I have my own made up original character that is me in the fantasies. I also have fictional characters I like in them too, including the one in my avatar.

In my roleplaying, especially the Harry Potter ones, I don't pretend to be the original characters from the books, I have my own original characters that I be, but I am in the Hogwarts setting etc.

I live in many fantasy worlds. However, in my own worlds(plus the Cthulhu Mythos, which I absolutely love for the science fiction and themes)I usually imagine my self as:

-One of the many heavily armored rat soldiers(Terra Insectum)
-A random character from Chitheria Tempus
-A Demigod of Nyrolathotep that also happens to be a sorcerer/mad scientist with an army of shoggoths, zombies, mi-go, and vamps
-One of the many main characters of the Jabbernak World explained in my short story, Above the Moon

If you don't know about any of these, search for them on the forums and you shall surely find the information you need.

By the way, which of the worlds I mention is your favorite, and which is your least favorite?

Before college I basically lived in a fantasy world all the time making myself an independent character because I did not feel like an autonomous being and also to escape from incessant bullying everyday from elementary all the way to high school. I watched a ton of tv every night especially in high school so all my imaginary stories centered around the shows I watched. My mind constantly runs with several thoughts all the time and my mind also is always creating stories. Some are deliberately imagined by me and I control them from beginning to end and others my mind just goes wild with with hardly any control. In college my mind still did this but I actually found my own independent identity and started to live in the real world among my minds stories. When I graduated in spring 2012 and left the summer job I love to go to grad school in the fall things sort of reverted back. Due to unhappiness at the school academically I withdrew at the end of October and now I'm back living at home and can't seem to get a job. I'm watching a lot of tv again and I'm starting to live in imaginary worlds centering around my favorite shows again, this time to stave off boredom. I want to keep living in the real world but I'm starting to get concerned because I am living in my imaginary stories more and more and I can't seem to stop. Don't get me wrong I love my vivid imagination, but like in college I want to still be able to balance my imagination and the real world at the same time.

I find I spend far too much time day dreaming, to the point where I wish it would just go away. I find I day dream about stupid things that make no sense and I would not even want them to happen. I am a 25 year old woman and I find that I become obsessed with Dragonball Z. This is embarrassing for me to admit but I get romantic fantasies about Goku's Brother Raditz and if I have looked at a picture of him they will bother me for days for goodness knows how long. I have always had a major crush on this character since I was about 13. The fantasies can become quite bizarre. I had a really abusive childhood and sometimes I think about people being mean to me and it feels like an alternative to cutting when I feel down about something. I also fantasise about living in the Z universe and me being in a relationship with Raditz but we are not officially married and me being the fat ugly wife and Bulma and Chi Chi making fun of me and excluding me because they are prettier and much more middle class. In the fantasy I am Marron's invisible ugly friend but unlike all other men Raditz being a loser too took an interest in me and ignores Marron and I get very drunk and pass out and he does sexual stuff to me and I end up pregnant and that is how the relationship starts. In the fantasy we end up with 3 unplanned daughters and Raditz does not make any money and we are staying at Kami house. I can get lost in this for hours and before I know it a huge portion of the day is gone. I also fantasise about Raditz kidnapping me and him making me do things against my will. I have others that I will not go into detail about. I have never told anybody this. I created a Yahoo Answers troll of him saying ridiculous things and I find it to be a bit of a release and I also find it funny. What can I say? I am a freak by human standards and I really think I do come from a different planet.

Most people don't pace back and forth for hours, bobbing their head, while listening to an iPod and concocting new storylines for "Star Trek" and "The X-Files." Kids in school thought I was mentally retarded at recess until I learned not to do it in public.

Also, most people don't have to keep "tuning out" every 15 minutes or so in a social situation because their brain starts to shut down due to overload.

And most people don't start feeling like a pressure valve about to explode if they can't pace back and forth, hand flap, and head bob for a few hours every day.

--XFG


Great, I love it! :) I have to jump in the air all the time and hand flap, too. I also talk to myself. People think I'm mad.

I live in a fantasy world as well sometimes. As long as you can distiguish fantasy from reality it's ok I suppose. The only problem is that reality can hit you really hard if you are forced to step out of this bubble because every day life has to take over.

An unwanted daydream I used to get was that there was this female amphibian type woman in my head that wore a pink bath robe and shower cap. She was pretty hideous and at night she would travel underneath my covers and want to chew my arms off if I didn't keep them under my pillow. She had two sidekicks which consisted of one sidekick that I could never quite see and another one which was actually Squatt from The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. She lived in a big brick castle on top of a hill and her whole life was dedicated to scheming against me and chewing my arms off. This wasn't a fantasy so much as it was a delusion that I just couldn't get out of my head and she would play in my head constantly like a movie. She had 2 children that were human for some reason and they always looked really bored and unhappy. They were called William and Kate, funnily enough, maybe the Royal Family really are evil reptoid aliens and this gargoyle toad woman is the Queen... Maybe I'm onto them and they wanted to eradicate me before I grew up and started listening to David Icke. Now I'm getting lost in a day dream again.

This doesn't come across as convincing creepy cupcake.
Try another story next time because this one is average at best. Sorry!
