Often Fantasize And Smile Alone?
I want to ask, I like to fantasize about events that I have experienced before, but I often change these events into things that “never happened, sometimes I like to smile” myself when I fantasize, do I experience psychological disorders?
Imagining is something that is quite often done by humans and is actually one of the mechanisms of self defense, especially in individuals who tend to be closed. When the reality in life is not according to expectations or desires, humans can imagine something they want.
Imagine it as long as it doesn't interfere and you still realize that it is a fantasy, generally the condition is still within reasonable limits and nothing to worry about. But when you begin to not be able to distinguish between imaginary and real things, or imaginary habits start to disrupt your life, it is necessary to think about the possibility of psychological disorders. For example you feel you are talking to other people, hear other people's voices, are easily angry, easy to experience mood swings, and you feel all these things are really real, but not, you should consult further with a psychiatrist or psychologist.
Some psychological disorders that can cause complaints are difficult to distinguish between fantasy and reality such as psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression. For now you can try doing the following tips first, ok?
Expand social activities related to people Regular exercise Manage stress well Reduce solitude in the room Try to continue to think positive Learn to accept that not all reality can be in accordance with desire Do relaxation Relax sharing problems or confide in people you trust You do not need to worry first with what you are experiencing right now. But if you begin to feel disturbed or difficult to distinguish between imagination and reality, I suggest that you consult directly with a psychiatrist or with a psychologist so that further examination can be done to ascertain your condition. Furthermore, if needed a psychiatrist can provide treatment for you, for example by counseling to medication.
Hope it helps you,
