I have found most of my life I have been a daydreamer, not in a way were I was distracted from life, but as an enhancement.
I have found I daydream allot if I am reading a good book, (not while reading but after) I don't know how many times I have popped myself in a good story. I usually daydream things I enjoy, Like doing fun things.
Things that make me daydream allot...
Music on the radio while driving... (this is kind of dangerous, but I can't help it)
A good book I am reading..
A good show I caught on television or at the therater
a long boring ride in any vehicle
on the bad sad this will give me sour day dreams sometimes..
some sad news..
An argument with someone
something I am worried about, like a confrontation
I think I just have an active mind, but I noticed when I was on the Depakote, I couldn't day dream at all, it was a bummer.
LIth is cool, it doesn't effect me that way.
Okay am I the only daydreaming BP person out there lOL.

I daydream a lot. Usually about things I want to do, and how I will go about getting them done. But, then, a lot of times I space out while watching TV and don't even realize it, but my hubby does. And I get the line, what are you thinking about, and all I can do is say, I have no idea, because the thoughts are so fleeting....

I don't know how I missed this thread! It's a good one. I daydream all the time. I never put the two together until now though. I seem to do it a lot when I am busy and have lots I need to get done. I'll lay in bed at night and daydream about getting everything done. I used to have the scary ones too... visions of people I love getting hurt or worse, etc. But, those don't happen as much anymore. I dream very actively too. Those used to be scary as well. Almost considered night terrors..... very frightening things happening all around me to the point it affected my day when I woke up. But, those are gone. I used to have a hard time reading books b/c they made me dream so much.
A positive attitude wonít solve your probs, but it will annoy enough people to be worth the effort.
