Anna the Maladaptive Daydreamer

Okay, so here I am sharing my story to strangers. Deep breath. I have spent the last ten years daydreaming. It started when I was a child, it was my way of coping with some very extreme family problems, and over time it has become my addiction. It is nearly always triggered by music and involves me pacing and skipping, sometimes repeatedly skipping towards a wall, pushing myself off it, skipping back and starting again, completely oblivious to what I'm doing until my hands have blistered from… Continue

Hello.

Hi. I am obviously new to this site. Not really all that great at introductions(even in this cyber-reality known simply as the internet).

Uh....I have been trying to really figure out just what is wrong with me(mentally) ever since I was about 15. Yesterday, I think I was on the verge of a major nervous-breakdown. I only ate once the whole day at night and did not shower until way late at night(which is unusual for me even if I feel weak from my physical illnesses, because I…

Living with my MD

I don't know if my MD is getting better or worse. Because i can't tell. I live in a reality that isn't really reality. I which I could say that it's getting better - as I've been busy lately with creative projects. But, I find myself daydreaming in the bathroom or sometimes at the computer. I've come to just completely give in to MD and just tell random people who happen to catch me talking to myself - that yeah - I talk to myself. So far, they seem to just shrug it off and accept it. My mom…

A Theory

Why do we daydream? Why do we make up characters and interact with them in the scenarios we choose? This question has been puzzling me for sometime and I think I now finally have an answer. As humans we thrive on human interaction, somewhere out there they're is someone at a party having the best of times. He/she is surrounded by the people they love interacting with and all is good in their minds. I think we daydream because we are lonely in a various amount of ways. Some of us truly have…

Hi

Hello





I probably should have guessed that pacing around for hours on end obsessing over events and people that exist only in my mind wasn’t normal. I did have some suspicions, but I never thought my habit of ‘thinking’ was something like MD. I’ve had an active imagination my entire life, but I don’t think it was excessive until I was about eight years old, maybe a bit younger. Nothing traumatic happened…

Quitting and its Drawbacks

I made a YouTube video at the beginning of my daydreaming "cleanse." I just quit right there and then. Awhile after that video was created, I went four days without daydreaming at all and I was very productive, but then after those four days I spent six days daydreaming a lot. …

Real-life Family joins My World - Alexandrov

Pretty accurate if I say that this is the only family that I made into characters. Plus they don't change its appearance and personalities. Besides I need their perspective to tell their stories for my project novel, but because all of the member already passed away, so all I can do is only looked at the grandson's memoir about them. And some biographies or documentary movies about them. The memoirs are enough to add some stories how this family lived in such a cold place only with their…

That Jealous Feeling To Others

Just want to sharing my feelings...

Sometimes I felt so jealous to others. They seems have brighter future than me, although I can't guess too much since it's not happening yet.

The feeling comes bigger after learning at college for a year. I start to lose my confidence to become a translator in government. I changed my aspire to be furniture entrepreneur like father, but to do that... I must at least learn it at Jepara (it's a special city that focus on making and…

Strong Characters in my Daydreams

The strongest of my main characters in my day dreams are usually women. I don't know why but it may stem from the fact that most of them came from dreams of my old real life crushes. In each and every one of them I wanted to see a strong and down to earth personality, so I copied it to my day dream world. The looks and some personality traits stuck while names and back stories were changed drastically. In the end, the final product was almost always a distorted image of an ideal crush for me. A… Continue

Daydreaming about your crush Vs Reality about your crush

Hello fellow daydreamers,

The topic i want to discuss today is mainly subjected to as the title suggest,

First of all i'm really glad that we daydreamers have access to this website so that we can talk with each other and discuss our problems, so all the credit goes to the one who made this possible, Cordelia rose. 

Now coming to the main topic, 

There is a very thin line between your daydreaming and the…

It's gone!

It's now the fourth week I don't daydream anymore!

I don't know whether it is for good, there were times in my life, when very emotional things happened, that I didn't daydream for days - once I even didn't daydream for 8 months. But now nothing unusual has happened.

In the first days I had maybe 40 times a day the impulse to dd, but it had literally the taste of fake. It was, as if I saw some delicious food, and with the first bite I noticed, it is made of plastic. So I…

Changed Style for Drawing My DD

Finally after long college time, I have a time too for writing this.

So yeah, I decided to change my drawing style. Although I may still use my realistic drawing... The reason are: (1) sometimes I have mood to draw but too lazy for doing some face details and (2) many people - okay I mean my big family - start to complain about my drawing style. In my religion, people who make something exact like human will burn in hell because they had challenge God's creation. My family are rather…

More fail

I'm at my third day completely dreamt away.

I am very happy on one hand because I "unlocked" a new scenario but I still feel a bit guilty and I haven't been able to work in ages. I'm also not doing a lot of meditating or yoga or eating properly so it's sort of my fault. It feels very cyclical and I don't know what is first, but generally I come to a point where I will stop eating properly (yesterday i had just fries and two days ago just a waffle), stop exercising, stop meditating and…

My Story

Darkness to Discipleship.

Ever since I was a child, my imagination has been extensive.

As a kid, I had not just one imaginary friend, but a whole tribe.

An imaginary baboon tribe.

Being a child my imagination had the freedom to run wild.

I’d write letters in baboon language

Run around the fresh green grass, leading my “tribe” to safety.

Even leave my sister to play with my imaginary friends instead.

But every child dreams, and so…

My not so daydream triggers *may contain triggers*

I have recently discovered that watching gaming videos doesn't trigger me. I can watch a lot of them without taking breaks and daydreaming, that's awesome.

I just felt like saying this, maybe you guys need something to watch without it being triggered.

But however watching panels at conventions is triggering for me.

Gamers I watch

-Markiplier

-Gassymexican

-Cryaotic

-Seananners

*warning, these gammers may play graphic content and cussing mildly, please… Continue

My mind is my sanctuary

Hello! Happy to have myself as a part of this community :) *virtual hugs*

Being here, I wish to write stories of my life, as being someone who loves to daydream. I daydream a lot, but fortunately I had a good control of it. I would describe myself as an imaginative person (as we all are), an introvert who thinks of things deeply, but yet simple-minded at most times.

My mind or my imagination is my secret world. And it all roots back to my…

Treatment week 6, back on track

So after having had a lapse last week, I got back into the saddle. I actually find atm that yoga is more useful than meditation, so I'm focussing on that right now. Yoga has the added benefit that I focus on my body, and instead of just sitting there trying to be calm, I can move around a bit and experiment with how things feel. It's a very different way of being into the world and when I come out of it I'm always very clear headed and able to be decisive and do things. 

I…

MC Characters

Have you guys ever taken fictional characters that already existed and made them better in your fantasy? As in making them more fleshed out, giving them a backstory, etc. because thats what I do in my fantasies, I take characters of fiction that already exist and make them better. Do you guys do that?

PS: In my fantasy I'm always hanging out with Knuckles the Echidna, Garrus Vakarian, and Tuxedo Mask lol!
