Mental Illness?

Started this discussion. Last reply by greyartist on Monday. 3 Replies

Do you consider maladaptive daydreaming a mental illness? Whenever I think of the word mental illness it's something I could never imagine myself having...it's such a strong word, kind of scary. Continue

While I am maladaptive daydreaming I call it My World. And in my world is a whole new different story of characters I have created in this physical world and one main character that I see myself as…Continue

Learning to Live Without it

It's been about five days since I've began slowly stripping away maladaptive daydreaming. It's been going pleasantly well so far by my surprise.  In the beginning I told myself I'm just going to quit cold turkey and if I have some slip-ups it's OK and Iv'e been doing just that. I haven't had as nearly many urges to have "my time" and if I do I will only have it for 10 minutes and then be done with it and I am satisfied with that. After I've had my ten minutes I'm good for the day. I would have…See More

It's Time To Stop

After joining this website I've come to the conclusion that I finally want to stop this addiction that I have. Don't get me wrong I will miss it like crazy and most likely have terrible urges to go back to it. I'm taking this one step at a time because I know something that has manifested itself for over 10 years won't simply just go away. My main character in my world will always be by my side. She's taught me a lot of things. But it is now time to take a hold of my own personal life. I want…See More

"Maladaptive daydreaming is really my only fault, I don't think I have any other serious issues going on with me, maybe some anxiety but everyone experiences that. "

"Maladaptive daydreaming isn't the same thing as having a piece of your brain melted by some disease. I've yet to see one person who had it without having other, more serious issues brewing under the hood. So far it seems to always manifest…"

"I've never thought of it like that. It's true many of us want this thing to be cured and go away but do we really? Like you,  I enjoy having my time to escape and go to my other world, it's one of the biggest things that makes me…"

"All the time, I actually find it much more satisfying rather then just simply daydreaming!"

My Story

When I found out that this website was a thing, I was overjoyed. Me and my best friend both share this condition and it is something we bond over immensely. But seeing a whole community coming together and  sharing their stories is pretty amazing. Maladaptive Daydreaming started for me at a young age of probably seven. My mom was diagnosed with paranoia and was in and out of hospitals that whole year so I lived with my grandparents for the remainder of that time. Their neighbors had a swing set…See More
