Anyone else, or am I alone?

Started this discussion. Last reply by True Blue Dreamer Dec 20, 2014. 3 Replies

Rant incoming, but if it's tl;dr I bolded questions and important details and just answer those if I'm too wordy for you. :PI read about other people's experiences and I feel a bit alone because the…Continue

Alex replied to Molly Allen's discussion My brain does not shut off
"I am 21 myself and I can definitely relate, because my daydreaming is less an activity and just the setting my brain defaults to nowadays when I am not concentrating on anything. The moment something doesn't command my attention, I am gone. But…"

Alex replied to MissAnthrope's discussion Perfecting daydreams
"Sequence? Not really. A couple very important scenes I'll repeat just because I enjoyed them a lot and I tend to learn new things that happened that I can use in the future/present daydream. Mostly I'm daydreaming new scenes. However, I do…"

Alex replied to OhMyMagenta's discussion Do you have a type?
"I'm the same as SRSJ (yay! I meet so few people who daydream like this it's exciting lol) but I think I do have types. I add new characters as they are needed and let go of characters as I lose interest in them so I still go through a lot…"

Alex replied to aprelle's discussion MDD or Schiz?
"Most people here are likely not mental professionals so we can't give you a diagnosis. This sort of question would be better posed to a psychologist. All I can say is, I wouldn't be surprised if MDD was misdiagnosed as schizophrenia a fair…"

Alex replied to Grace's discussion Obsessively daydreaming?
"Obviously I'm not a mental health professional, but the first thing that comes to mind is if there are any other behaviors in your life that you "have" to do like this?Daydreaming likely enters the realm of MDD when it is difficult to…"

Alex replied to S.D.'s discussion This is because I didn't get enough attention right?
"Seeing as MDD is a coping mechanism that could very well be the source of your need to cope. Personally, I was just a very bored child. I was the eldest and struggling with mental health problems all my life so I got plenty of attention, heck I…"

Alex replied to S.D.'s discussion Limiting the amount of time you daydream
"I don't try to limit mine since I don't see it as negative, but I'm the same way as you that my daydreaming isn't an activity I focus on at one time. My daydreams constantly go in my mind as I go about my day. There are some…"

Alex replied to Heaven's discussion ASMR?
"I am REALLY sensitive to this and I'm the same that many triggers for me make me squirm instead of relax me. Other triggers are pleasant, but whispering for instance is really uncomfortable and I get it mostly on my left side as well, in my…"

Alex replied to Floris's discussion Day dreamers in movies
"Sucker Punch is definitely an example. They use the term "alternate reality" to describe it which is the term I used to use (still do) before I found the term MDD. I always interpreted it as Babydoll daydreaming to cope with being in the…"

Alex replied to Ash Lumiere's discussion Bipolar Disorder and Maladaptive Daydreaming.
"I was diagnosed with Type 2 seven years ago. I don't know if you can link MDD with a specific mental illness, but MDD seems to have a general high co-morbidity with mental illness in general, whether it be depression, generalized anxiety,…"

Alex replied to Kayla Corcoran's discussion Is anyone here into MBTI?
"I'm an INFP 4w5 sx/sp. But not that surprising. I feel like INFP would be the stereotypical DDer if there was one."

Alex replied to Natasha Mander's discussion does anyone here not mind their maladaptive daydreaming?
"I don't think I suffer from it at all. I'm quite happy that I have it. Sure, I'll admit that there's a downside, that it limits my motivation to meet people and have experiences. But I could likely be dead if it wasn't for…"

Alex replied to Fantasizin Farah's discussion Real People Don't Listen To Me Like My Daydream People Do
"Nowadays, my DDs seem to be a lot more focused on just having friends than actual plot. And I know I create them  because I don't have any friends in real life as genuine and loyal as they are. They always leave, or don't care about…"

Alex replied to Jennifer's discussion Famous Maladaptive Daydreamers?
"Emilie Autumn... no confirmation if she is, but she straight-up wrote a book detailing one of her stays at a psych ward and the DD that she was using to cope with it, referring to her alternate self "Emily with a 'y'". She's…"

Alex replied to Kay M's discussion My daydream characters have such messed up lives!
"That's exactly how it's always worked for me. Tons of hardship and pain in my MCs life. Father left her mother when she was little, lived in poverty. Her mother remarried to a guy she totally adopted as her real father and they just…"
