Greetings

I'm fairly new here so I figured I'd let myself be known.  I'll do a proper introduction later. For now, a simple hello will do.

My Story

So, I don't really have the power to escape like I used to.

I understand that for some of you, it is more like an uncontrollable disease.

It was never that for me.

I knew my daydreams were just that...dreams.

And…

Vicious cycle

I want to get this off my chest as I don't talk about my MD to people I know....

I feel like my low self confidence causes me to daydream a lot abd in turn my daydreams cause me to have low self confidence... Hence the title - vicious cycle!

Any advice on how to break it... I just wanna be brave and confident in myself enough to live in the real world.

Losing Out On Life

I look back on life and I see that I've been daydreaming since I was very young. One of my first memories was even when I was daydreaming. To me it's how I can cope with anxiety future choices, what-if situations, and getting over the past. I also use day dreaming to help me sleep (when it doesn't keep me up). My escape from daily problems. I think I have created my own problem. Sometimes I will daydream for hours and miss out on valuable class time. I will daydream while someone close to me…

Hi Everyone!

Hey guys and gals,

So as you may have figured, I have MD and like many others on this site I have had it my entire life.  Unlike most of the people I have seen so far, I am extroverted and test as an ENFP on the Meyer's Briggs test.  I believe that my MD was triggered in my childhood during the long stretches of loneliness I experienced due to being an only child and having two very career oriented parents.  I wasn't abused or anything like that (my parents are wonderful people) but…

Events here have somewhat of a talent for repeating

The recent flow of new users and their stories has made me reflect on how history in this place keeps looping.

I've been here since 2014 and I've seen people come and go, each with their distinct points of view, ideals and goals. Some were open to discussion and conversation while others remained silent. A select few managed to remove the 'maladaptive' in front of their daydreaming and got out of here "victorious".



Those who wrote down their stories, either in posts or in the…

Finally figuring it all out

Hey guys,

So I'm new to this website and this is my first blog post.

It's also my first time ever talking/writing or communicating with anyone about this so it's a bit weird writing this and being able to just say how I feel. 

I'm so glad I found this website! For years I thought there was something wrong with me and I was developing schizophrenia or something, I'm sure loads of you guys felt the same! Hell I'm still scared I might go crazy!

Anyways, I'm 21 now…

My first blog entry

 

Hello,

 

Like everyone else who is a member of this community forum, I am so pleased to have found out that there is a term for what I do: Maladaptive Daydreaming Disorder (MDD); and there are so many people like me. It would also appear that all of us thought that we were the only one who did this. That’s odd really when you consider how many shared psychosis exist in the world, but maybe we all felt that this was so personal, so weird, that no…

Hello!!!!

So I just recently found out about MD, I never thought anything about my daydreaming. Ive been daydreaming since I can even remember, getting lost from world I know. It was only a year ago at work that I found myself so lost in my mind, everything around just disappeared from view, I didn't even hear the customer whom was trying to talk to me. I became so scared that I thought surely something must be wrong with me. Then I found this place, and I saw the millions of other people that are just… Continue

Hey, I'm New

I didn't see a place for introductions on the forums, so I thought I'd post one here.

I'm Morgaine, and I've been a daydreamer for as long as I can remember. I stumbled upon MD as a condition after finally admitting that I daydream to my best friend of 19 years. It's such a good thing I did, since she was able to help me put a name to my habit.

I'm 29 and I've been married for 5 years, together for 10. My dreaming has always been an open secret between my…

Possible connection between MDD and boring life?

This has probably been already said, but I got to thinking about it just now.

From what I know about brains, they need to be stimulated in order to work right, and if they're not stimulated enough, they make up interesting stuff (a.k.a. 'hallucinate').



Now, as you all can probably imagine, a life in which every day sucks all the same to the point where you start having trouble tracking time, not to mention that you hate it all, is bound to feel boring as hell. And when nothing…
