WHOA! I thought this was normal...well, fack! something new added to the equation, eh?
I would lay in my bed and I would always need to have something in my hand. I would create movie like themes. There would always have to be explosions and for some reason I just couldn't wrap my head around as to how much explosions I should add. Really weird. I would also do this after a movie and I would go lay in my bed, with a pen preferably, and give it my own ending or twist.
I would also do this while sitting in class. I would take my surroundings and create a sort of film in my head. All I needed was a writing utensil of some sort in order to engage into this "world" 100%.
I was placed in special ed type classes and my teachers warned my parents of "ADHD". Although, I've always begged to differ with the teachers on the matter, since I voluntarily didn't pay close attention. Maybe my "imaginative" world would take over from me being able to learn, I am not sure.
I don't this very often anymore. If I do, I can manage without something like a pen or pencil being in my hand.
Music is incredible when it comes paring these two together! Especially when I am driving! ugh! it's sort of like a natural high and a quick getaway. BUT! it has to be the right song.
I toke every now and then. I can really enhance the "fantasies" with it.
The earliest age I can probably remember doing this would be about 7-8 years of age.
Damn, so here I am, years later. A little crushed actually, because this whole time I was thinking, and so were others, that I had such an incredible imagination. No, Harold. No it's not. It's just all part of your disease.
