My daydreams are not very sad, but they're very violent. In my daydreams, I'm the queen of a large, futuristic empire in space. There have been 3 wars so far. When I daydream about the wars there's…Continue

Negative daydreams- an emotional drug?

Looking at why we daydream negative or tramtic events. I have noticed in lots of posts in the main forum that many of us seem to have little real emotions or feelings. Cold, empty, are some of the…Continue

Thanks Padric and everyone else on this site.
Nice to know I'm not alone. I think lots of my fantasies/DD both negative and positive have been a way to cope with my fears of real life. Also with my control issues. A lot if things I wanted to do but didn't have courage to try were relegated to my DD. The allows me to DD control the outcome. Be omnipotent.
The negative violent stuff definitely comes to the fore when I'm very depressed or angry. Lots of times the anger DD is aggressive behavior towards others but it also can be suicide DD which turns the anger on me. i think most people would think I'm a kind quite person in real life but I can be very angry and twisted underneath.

New to this site but love the identification I have with MD.
I have had violent negative daydreams where I am the victim of an accident , crime, etc. it started when I was younger and wanted my parents to show affection and love. I imagined the scenes of them finding out I was hurt and them crying over me in hospital.
Later in I developed lots of rape victim fantasies. My parents were very anti sex when I was growing up. They made it into a sinful dirty thing that only bad people did. And only bad women did to please men. I didn't have boyfriends when I was in my teens/early 20s and ended up very scared and guilt ridden about sex. But of course at the same time I could think of nothing else. Like a normal adolescent. It made me very angry at men. I actually got at STD from first guy I was with at 27. This made everything worst. the sex abuse/rape fantasies was way for me to cope It allowed me to be angry at men and assuaged my guilt and fear about my own desires. Was a very bad time for me. Ended up actually feebly trying to kill myself.
Once I did start having relationships these type of fantasies receded. Although the victim thing can come up still.

Hmmm... yeah I do that. Sometimes I daydream about VERY dark stuff, and I hate it, it makes me feel guilty, but i still do it anyway and I have no idea why. I'm never involved in these daydreams, is just my characters experiencing insane amounts of abuse, things that terrify me and would make me sick if i saw them in movies or books. Sometimes I use the content of these daydreams to the actual storyline, sometimes I just daydream dark garbage  just for the sake of daydreaming dark garbage and I don't know, it makes me feel messed up. But everything always has a happy ending I guess...

***Also, in no way shape or form do I want my family members or anyone actually hurt. I know that my daydreams are fake (of course), and hope my comment did not come off as if I have intentions or truly desire harm to others, b/c I don't.

Comment by Tia Joseph on February 17, 2015 at 7:13am

Yes I definitely negative daydream. I daydream about family members dying like my dad or him having a heart attack or my sister getting into a car accident...mainly so I can daydream about people feeling bad for me or sorry for me. It's frustrating that I daydream these types of things to feel better. It's stupid. Sometimes my daydreams get oddly specific like I have another recurring one where I have this older half-brother who I haven't seen in forever who is a half-brother b/c my mom was raped when she was younger but couldn't keep him and I end up meeting him now in life. UGH it sounds psychotic typing it out but yeah :/ I guess I also have daydreams about chewing people out/yelling at them and for some reason that makes me feel better. Wish I wasn't so angry. Dk what the deal is. I want a better outlet than daydreaming.

I think I do this a lot. I daydream about negative interactions with people. Even though, a majority of them turn out good, and even if they don't their not as in my head. I'm so worried I'll say the wrong thing. I also imagine people are in the shadows, looking to harm me. I sometimes daydream that I'm in a crowded place, someone has a gun, and I'm trying to help them realize they don't have to kill everyone. My daydreams often get very dark if I'm alone for too long.
