Fiction is best

So from what I've read I have all the symptoms of maladaptive daydreaming. I daydream excessively, but I always thought it was normal. I'd rather think than pay attention to certain things, though sometime it comes without warning and I find myself spacing out in important conversations. My daydreams hardly ever include me, unless I'm thinking about my life. When I fantasize I'm not in it, cause I don't really like me that much, and would rather be someone else. But this never seemed like a…

A Little Introduction

Hi! After finding this site last night, I decided to start blogging here as well. I imagine it could be quite therapeutic and perhaps we can all share our experiences here. I will begin my blog with a little introduction.

My name's Andrew. I'm 18 years old and I live in a small town in Kentucky. I'm a terribly imaginative and eccentric guy. I put a lot of my time and effort on my education and I'll be going to college in Fall of 2011.



I was born with an author's heart and…

Passing it on?

Out on a drive the other day my eight year old daughter starting telling me about this world that she made up in her head. It included characters, storylines and lots of bright, vibrant details. She said she goes there every morning and every night. Naturally my heart sank and it terrified me. I didn't make it into a big detail, but it was something I was completely unprepared for. I am hoping that it's "normal" daydreaming for a kid, and not my kind that will follow her throughout her life,…

all of my days

I realize now why I need you, Daydreaming. You fill up this hole in me, that is supposed to be the real me. The truth is though, that you are only a shadow. Just a shadow of who I am. You are pulling me deeper and deeper into this thing that is so twisted and corrupt that it can ruin the life of a young girl. I guess, what I am trying to say, is that it was nice living my life with you. You protected me from so much. You satisfied the needs of an attention starved little girl, if only for a… Continue

I CANT BELIEVE WHAT I JUST FOUND!!! (in my old composition book)

So, i was curious (more like dying to know) what caused my MD. and i was looking back at things that i wrote when i was 9 to 12 and im still not done! at first from what i read just blown away by the real cause of my MD, then i was immensely happy remembering all the good times i had when my MD was just a miniscule pleasure i did in life... then i got sooo mad.... i was tearing up papers and i was just so pissed of at how much YEARS i have wasted in MD.. but im not going to get into that…

MDInvite

Hi,

     I am 22 and I am a student. I have been suffering from this problem for years and I have tried several things to get rid of this. I had been taking prescription drugs for 3 years, but it didn't help much. I was not aware of the problem back then. I thought I had ADD/ADHD back then. The pyschiatrist told me that I had OCD. Then, I was taking Fluvoxamine,Lonazep, etc. for 3 years.  Only now, I came across this website and this condition online. I hope they do find a sloution…

my outlet

i was thinking about what my mom said to me yesterday morning and was just wondering if anybody else thought the same thing or just any thoughts in general about it...so here it goes

my grades have been dropping lately because of my (you guessed it) MD... im not proud of it. but anyways my mom was giving me my daily dosing of threats with the cliche "if you dont pull your grades up then there will be serioius consequences" rant. and she was going on and on about everything she could…

um...hope I'm doing this right...

I joined this network quite some time ago, but for some odd reason never kept up with it, but, actually, I need to.

 

See, I've had this MD problem for a long time, I think since I was 4? Something like that.

 

I never realized that it was a-what? disorder?- in its own right. You see, I was told that it was a symptom of my depression....or something like that.

No one was even aware that I had this problem until I was in therapy as a teen-then I was told…

a bit from a short story I'm working on

this isn't actually from a daydream, it's from a nightmare that I woke up sweating from in the middle of the night. it's about a supernatural disease that drives it's host homicidal.

it can be found on my blog at

reflecting on md

Hi,

 I'm new to the group, and, like everyone else, really just amazed to learn that there are others like me. I'm in my 40's and have had this "habit" since I was three or four years old. Music is my trigger - twirling.  MD has been very problematic for me, costing me personally and vocationally. I have deep regret over all of the time that I've wasted in my life. But, I can actually say that now I fantasize less, mainly due to the pain over the realization of the…

My World



Okay, so I have many different fantasies about a particular series of books and I believe that the characters within them are alive. I can even call one a best friend and another a lover. I think that something big has to happen for them to 'come rescue' me. Stupid, right? Yeah, I really have to get over this.…

Who am i now that i have md?

So i'm 22, and for all of my life i've considered myself to have an overactive imagination - something in which i've never fully admitted to anyone. i will, however,  admit that it caused me problems on numerous occasions, but i did my best to withold my day dreaming as much as possible and to seem as social as possible (even though most times i'd rather be alone just lost in my thoughts). 

 

but now i've found this forum, and i'll admit i'm relieved to see that there are so…

An interesting read for all us non-neurotypicals

Happy New Years everyone.

 I've not visited this site for the last couple of months as (out of necessity)  I've pulled out of daydream mode.  (That I can do this possibly indicates that I have a moderate version of this condition.  That my addictive dreaming was late onset .. I was in my 30's when it started .. is another.)

 

  Anyway, I've just finished reading a book on brain plasticity that might interest to many of you.  It's called:  "The Brain That Changes…
