"THIS THIS THIS!!!  I am also a singer/actress in real life, but I haven't done nearly as much with it as I should or could have because I let all of my creative energy go to my daydreams. One of my most recent/favorite daydreams is that I…"

Jenn replied to Adriene's discussion Does anyone know?
"My roommate/best friend/"big sister" knows...she is the only one I have ever told. She doesn't fully understand it, of course, but over the years she has come to know the signs of when I am doing it. She thinks it is sad, and she has…"

"Aj, That is a really great point that I hadn't thought about before, but there is definitely something to be said about the depression I feel being from the shame and regret of letting myself get pulled back into my daydreams.  A large…"

Aj replied to Jenn's discussion Coming out of a daydream...
"I also experience depression/grief when I realize they aren't real. However, I'm starting to think that a lot (or at least some) of the awful feelings I get when I'm "coming out of a daydream" stem from shame over having MD…"

Sage replied to Jenn's discussion Coming out of a daydream...
"Jenn I'm experiencing everything you are. I have awful social anxiety. I can barely function in public. I get nervous and sweaty and I can't make eye contact. I asked my therapist had she heard of MDD and she said no. When I showed her…"

"I used to...I would be so in the middle of a daydream that I would just randomly be smiling or scowling or mouthing what I was saying in the daydream...whatever I was feeling in the daydream had the possibility of being on my face. It got called out…"

Coming out of a daydream...

Hi all,I'm fairly new to Wild Minds, but I have done a lot of research and personal introspection on MD. I read Etetaia's post on curing MD from last year, and it was like I was reading some of my own thoughts.  I used it to stop daydreaming for about a month...and then I went on a trip to visit my parents (always a huge trigger for me because that house is where my MD started) and they hit me full force again.  I'm 36 years old and I'm tired of being so stuck in my head and spending so much…See More

Jenn replied to Source's discussion What if you can use MD?
"I think you provided your own answer when you said at the end of your post that the missing link is action.  I used to think the same way as you...that my daydreams were just dreams of what I wanted my life to be, and that having such big…"

Jenn replied to Asta's discussion What about famous people - singers, actors.. ?
"I do a version of this, but my daydreams are based more on the characters that the famous actors play on TV or in movies.  I will take those characters and create daydreams around them...and then I tend to get upset or depressed when I see that…"
