No : Dear sfahl5, there is no such thing as overactive imagination disorder, at least not in the dsm categories. An active imagination is at times a blessing & a curse. Usually i see it as a blessing, since creativity is an asset & can be used as a tool in therapy. If your imagination is frightening you, find a therapist & talk about the fantasies. Thoughts & fantasies do not make things happen.
