Where wild minds come to rest
That's what we call it in my family. I've done it ever since I can remember. (I theorize that my string playing started with the corners of the "blankie" I had as a kid, but who knows?) I lie down, usually on my bed, with a plain, white t-shirt on my chest to provide a neutral background. I take a length of string, usually shoestring, and twirl it with my hands. Frankly, I don't really know what actions I perform with the string in my hands, because by the time I'm doing it my mind is…Continue

I tried so hard. So hard to take an internet sabbatical, apparently not hard enough. I tried and I failed. Just like the last time. I try not to come here, I try and I fail. I see myself hurting my chances to a better future and yet I don't act. My existential crises in the bus rides home are so fucking short-lived, as soon as I come home, I waste time, even more time. I daydream while sitting at my desk, "10 minutes only, maybe, maybe I'll get the motivation from my…Continue

Maladaptive Daydreaming might have prevented me from joining this site.
I had been meaning to join a community like this for some time, but somehow kept forgetting. I need to learn more about this as I might 'suffer' from this condition or something related.
I am on the autistic spectrum which might have something to do with it as autistics are stereotypicly 'daydreamers'. I wonder how many Maladaptive Daydreamers are on the spectrum? That is a question worth testing.
I've been writing with prompts lately, and this is from the point of view of one of my main paras.
Jesse hasn’t slept like this in a while. Curled up on their side with both hands held loosely in front of their face. A comforter that must have been snug when they fell asleep is now bundled at their feet. Winter sunlight spreads from the window to paint their golden hair silver. I watch them, knowing they won’t be asleep for long - if I’m here, they must be…Continue

As I brought out in my last post,I thought daydreaming a lot was normal and never minded it. I think now I can remember when I started maladaptive daydreaming after i started thinking about it. I have memories of myself watching this one kids show about superheros. It was so stupid! but for a 3 year old it was my favorite show. I daydreamed a made up character going on these adventures with the tv show characters. I knew it wasn't the best made program, but it was the only…

I have been to this site many a times. But this time my purpose is totally different. I used to come here to find motivation and hope. Now I want to provide hope to others. It is totally possible guys! It is totally possible to conquer md! How do I know? Because I have overcame it alh. I will write about my journey later someday.
But just just know: you can too, and I promise its not as hard as it seems.
Another song made by yours truly, no alien languages this time! Hope you'll like it!
Change in sight
Brothers of a creed
Divinity long slumbered, now arise!
Words of a false prophet
Thirst for truth and vengeance in the new
Gift of fate
A promise from afar
Long sought peace is now within my grasp
Justice of another

Yeah, I don't have a clue how to make a blog post but I'll try.
So I've had MD ever since i could remember and never knew that other kids didn't daydream like I did. Sure, as children you daydreams a lot (i think that's why i thought it was normal, i heard people say it was normal for kids to daydream) but even as a 5 year old, i had violent daydreams. I got older and realized that something was different between me and other kids. I couldn't put my finger on what, exacly, but there was…
Hi Everyone. I stumbled across this when watching videos of MDD on youtube. I thought it was interesting that it was actually mentioned in the news. Plus it's really cool to see the people who were brave enough to talk about their MDD on TV and who gave many like us an opportunity to open up about our MDD. Special thanks to Cordelia Rose for creating this awesome site! :). And big thanks to psychologist Eli Somer for researching this and making it known to the scientific and general…Continue

I have been trying to give up on maladaptive daydreaming and something which I noticed was whenever something started going wrong I instalty started to daydream so what I am trying to do is when I have a problem I try to stay in reality and so far it is helping.
For about aweek I have been listening to affirmation saying "I dont maladptive daydream anymore" which I recorded and I listen to it every night during my sleep so it could be that.If anyone wants me create some subliminal…Continue

'What do you think? Will this do?'
'What? Yeah its pretty good, you are actually overdoing it at this point.'
'I need it, the extra points, what about you, are you done with yours?'
'Ah well nope.'
'Hey you told me you were going to complete it last night.'
'What can I say? I was in the mood of something else apart from work last night.'
'Does it have to do with K again? Aww..you still think about her. How cute.'

What is the subconscious mind?
What are subliminal audios?
So what I did was I downloaded audacity recorded some affirmations saying the I don't have MD anymore etc. and put it on very low volume so it would directly go to my…Continue
Does anyone find that practicing mindfulness helps to reduce their MD?
Somehow, beating all my expectations, I've managed to practice mindfulness everyday so far this year. 15 days and going strong! Normally my MD/procrastination kicks in, as it does with everything, and I just don't get around to doing it.
I find that sitting still and trying to be mindful is really hard. It's just so difficult to still my mind and just be. I use a couple of apps on my phone. My mind is so…Continue
I'm a blab. I like to tell people about their christmas presents before they open them. I like talking about the interesting things, sometimes their relevant sometimes their secret. But i have a need to express myself, i hate bottling myself up like this.
This has been so hidden from view even i could't see i had a secret. My sister has caught me many times talking to myself, smiling into the distance laughing at something my characters do or say. She knows i'm a little crazy, i can…Continue
I am doing this because i feel like it will be good for me. I know i got MD through a form of protection but now i'm too bubble wrapped by it and it's suffocating. It's why i've been depressed and anxious and have fear of social events. What i do is i imagine my idealised self- i imagine people complimenting me and how great my work is- i picture fun evenings with friends i don't have (even though i do, their all just far away) I picture myself with no worry and full of happiness. I used to…Continue
I just signed up to Wild Minds Network. But I've had MD for oooh, 23 years. Scary. And scary that I'm getting older... Not that I knew that it was MD for most of that time. I just thought that there was something wrong with me. Mostly that I was lazy and useless, as I could never get out of bed and get anything done because I was so distracted by my daydreams.
So it's the start of 2017. I've never like New Year's Eve (it's sort of like compulsory fun and I've…Continue
