OMG, I do the same thing Ransom! I've always been like this, for as long as I can remember. Sometimes I completely make up people or I imagine myself with others in my life or from TV or something in an unreal situation. I'm so glad I'm not alone.
I know it's not harming anyone, but it's so annoying b/c I know it's not normal and I could be doing so many productive things with that time.
(p.s. I was Dx w/ depression a year ago at age 18 although it probably started in junior high)

Welcome to HealingWell. Wow, you have a lot going on.
First of all no one should ever have to be abused either verbally or physically. I fear your esteem is so low and your trauma from your childhood on so big that you need to be in therapy.
You have many intense issues. I agree, you should think seriously about leaving your abusive husband and get your girls away from him. He may abuse them and what he is doing to you is certainly making and impact on your girls. Children are much wiser then we think and they pick up on little things quickly.
There are safe houses for women of abuse. I am going to post some numbers for you to call.
Child Abuse Hotline | Support & Information 800-792-5200 Crisis Help Line | For Any Kind of Crisis 800-233-4357 Sexual Assault Hotline | Up 24/7 - In English & Spanish 800-223-5001
NDMDA Depression Hotline | Support Group. 800-826-3632 National Domestic Violence Hotline 800-799-SAFE
Also, you do need to see a physician so please do follow through. We are here to support you but we are not professionals.

I believe there are some specific AD's that target anxiety as well as depression. You over active imagiantion is similiar to Anticipatory Anxiety. Try not to watch news or serach internet alot on your issues as you are sure to hear or read something that will feed fuel to the fire of your over active imaginaiton.
Have you tried any therapies yet.
I am here for you so keep posting and know we care.
