JenBren replied to SJ's discussion I'm curious what is the longest day dream you have had?
"I have been daydreaming about the same character for 5 years now and that's my longest. In the past, my daydreams have only revolved a year or two around one main character. "

JenBren replied to Anna's discussion Did you tell your therapist about it?
"If you can't handle it alone then you need to be honest and tell your therapist exactly what you're dealing with. I completely understand your struggle though...I was in therapy and it took me a while to open up and admit to my MDD. While…"

Dressing like your character

Posted on October 11, 2016 at 11:50am 1 Comment

Today I went shopping for new clothes and found myself buying only things my MD character would wear. I normally wear very casual, comfortable clothes, but today I shopped for items that were more stylish and trendy like those I imagine on my character.

It felt great to try on the clothes and I really felt comfortable in them, a stronger more confident version of myself I guess. I bought them all. 

Now I'm at home and wondering, is that a positive move ..like I'm…


Living a Double Life

Posted on April 30, 2014 at 11:59am 5 Comments

In an effort to get out of the house and start living life, or at least to try to live some kind of life out of my room where I do all my daydreaming, I started an exercise program. I joined a gym and I found a trail that I regularly walk/run. Funny enough, I opened up to my doctor about how unhappy/bored I am with life, etc (as much as I could without telling her about my daydreaming) and it was her advice that I start taking care of myself, and to do something for myself. That's how I…


On a High

Posted on November 5, 2013 at 11:45am 1 Comment

I wish I could say my mood is on a high, but in fact it's the daydreams. They are back to a high: constant, pulling at me emotionally, and extremely vivid. So much so that at times, the daydreams seem more real than reality. 

Unable to spend as much time at it as I would like/need, I find myself horribly depressed and constantly on the verge of tears. I am stuck in a horrible cycle: unhappy and seeking the daydreams more than ever, but unable to get the time in so feeling unhappy. I…


New and Yet Not New

Posted on October 22, 2013 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

I am so thankful that I stumbled upon and joined this network today. I have only recently (about 2 months ago) discovered the term Maladaptive Daydreaming but feel so much better having done so. Finally, I have an answer for what I have been doing for as far back in my childhood as I can remember and know now that I am not alone in doing this.

Now in my 40's, I still daydream daily and am now convinced my 10 year old daughter is daydreaming as well. She has a character that she has…
