Cycle of Interest?

Hi there MDDers! I'm currently working on a short presentation about MDD and I've came to the point where I have to describe what are the usual interests of MDDers? if there are any. What are your interests and hobbies? I've notices with myself that I have some sort of cycle of Interest. For a couple of week I will focus on a certain interest (we'll call it I1), then I will gradually get bored of I1, I will have a period of a couple neutral days, then I will start growing interest for…

Daydreaming and OC's

Would you guys consider your character an OC?

An OC is an 'Original Character.'
Some referring to Movies or TV shows and Cosplaying.
I wouldn't really count my character 'Amber' to an OC even though my character is from supernatural, I never draw her or even thing about Cosplaying her. I think of her as me, not some person I made up.

A closer look: the city of Asteriskia

(skyline of Asteriskia, after the American discovery)

This is an outline of one of my cities in my daydream, Asteriskia. During the great Plague, a 14 year old boy started seeing vivid hallucinations. He would mumble nonsensical words in a stupor. This could happen at any time in the day: while he was…

My Introduction

So where do I begin...

When I was a kid around 4-5 years old, I loved watching animated movies with my Grandmother at her place whenever my family visited. My Grandmother and I would always sit down and watch 101 Dalmatians together because it was my all time favorite Disney animated classic (it still is even today). And I think thats when my MD (Maladaptive Daydreaming) first started to develop. I remember trying to go to sleep one night and closing my eyes and then "poof" I was…

How to overcome MD?

I am 19.  In my dreams, I have whatever I don't possess in this world. In reality I am the only child to my parents. So, my parents are very caring, affectionate  and supportive. I haven't experience any difficulties in my life. As a student (hosteler) , I possess all the materialistic requirements in life . But I am lonely. In my dreams, I have two brothers  but parents have no role. In real life I am a very bad singer and a bad dancer but in my dreams I am a singer cum dancer who has a…

Cleaning Through My Old Stuff Through Spring Break

Hey guys!

It's spring cleaning time and I'm going through everything in my room one last time before I leave for college. Sifting through the huge piles of papers and stacks of sketch books is going to be fun; I always find gems from my DD that I have forgotten about. So I think all next week I'll be posting old pictures and stories all the way back from when I first started to day dream (around first grade). I might even super compile everything and log them into one continuous…

Treatment week 5, in which I fail

Where to start? 

With the closure of some very big thing at my job, last week was insanely hectic. I hardly daydreamt at all just because it was all hands on deck all the time. I was working until midnight or 1 am for a few days and finally managed the bloody thing. With that much stres, I didn't daydream. I tried, like when I was bored on the bus, but it didn't work. Instead, I actually really listened to the music. So I thought I had this shit down and I was doing great.…

Confussed Even more

Hi Dreamers.

I have not posted in a while.

I have been trying to stop DD for a while now but the more I try the more i go deeper into it. I have been single for 2 years now. My problem recently is that i can not differentiate between my day dreams and reality.

I think i am in love with a co worker but i am not sure if my feelings are real or I am just imagining things as usually. I am more confused than ever. I live more in my day dreams than reality because of…

Looking Closer At My Characters: The Corona Family



(Queen Victoria Corona, 1st leader of the reformed United States)

When I started daydreaming over ten years ago, many of my current characters were in their creative infancy. The idea of an American royal family came to me back in the 6th grade, when I did fall completely in love with this girl;…

My head has been in a weird space lately. Can't identify what triggered the change, but I felt a noticeable shift about three weeks ago. I'd just moved away from one DD scenario & when I went to make the jump to another world, I couldn't connect with it. It was quite disconcerting & I felt as though I were in some strange limbo. When the connection with the new DD didn't occur, I thought that perhaps I wasn't ready to leave my previous DD. When I revisited that world, I felt just as… Continue

Connecting with my actual identity 1

Most of the elements of my identity are not bad, I just don't connect with them because I spend most of my life in fantasy or life avoidance activities.



I think I disconnected from myself as a child due to feeling like I couldn't fit into the world. I was a very shy/anxious child and my mind was the only place I could be myself and be "connected". Even as things got better I continued to shy away from life and hide in my mind.



First steps: Connecting with my life/career as… Continue

why i am afraid of death, and how that is a good thing

This is a facebook page i made today. I'd like to add that dreaming is a way i make my life interesting.

I am afraid of death, but i do not think this is bad. I am afraid of more than nothingness. 



Every day, i realized it was a day wasted. Like on the weekends, i don't like to sleep much so i can enjoy my time, and dread sunday night. In life, i feel the same. I dread death the same as i dread sunday. My fear of death is more of a fear of not…

Treatment week 4

Oh dear lord the stress at work is getting higher and higher. BUT BUT BUT... the MD is lessening, and I'm back to being a chronic procrastinator -_- not very useful either, but I can stop that more easily.

At least I have been able to identify that the root causes are similar. Basically, my trigger to get into daydreaming or procrastinating is when

(1) I have stress "jolts" , remembering something I have to do, a stressful phonecall, some stupid task, my heart rate and anxiety…

Using people?

This may have been covered in another blog post, apologies if so, but you know when you daydream about a person from real life when you like them/find them interesting, and create conversations with them in your head and pretend you're talking to them etc, do any of you ever switch it so that you actually pretend to BE them? i have a long running fictional universe with characters that i have kept for years (whom i pretend to be too), but during certain periods of time, if i happen to meet…

My Story

Recently, I completed a survey about my MDD behaviour. It asked how long I spend daydreaming each day. As I considered the answer I realised it was more of a question of how long I don't spend daydreaming. The truth is that my whole day seems just one long fantasy interrupted briefly when my attention is required elsewhere to perform basic survival duties.…

PLZ HELP!!!!

I'm very possesive abt my things. When anybody touches my things I cant stand that person. I get mad at ppl if they do so. I feel they r no more mine and I should abandon them even if I love them more than my life. Then I cry the entire night, say the last goodbye with love and a feeling of sacrifice and finally stop using those things. My first grade teacher told me that whenever I lost an eraser or pencil in class I would keep panicking until I found it. I'm so possessive abt my ambitition… Continue

So I haven't posted in such a long time, mostly because of school demands etc. But I thought I'd share that I've been seeing a psychologist for a while about my daydreaming. At first it was really scary opening up to someone about it, but now it actually feels really good to have someone to share it with. It certainly hasn't stopped or reduced the daydreaming, but it's helped me understand a little better why I do it and how I can manage it :)

What's the endgame with therapy?

I apologize in advance for my poor spelling and grammar -  I wrote this pretty hurriedly.

My last post was about how I wanted to get help, well I did. My mom took me to my GP, and apparently just from looking at me she could tell how despondent I was - so she referred me to a psychologist and I've had two sessions so far - one last monday and one this monday. 

As some of you may know, I originally wanted to get either some sort of general neuro evaluation or…
