Where wild minds come to rest
At the moment I feel totally lost, daydreaming seems to be taking over my life. Normally I feel like I have more control over it. I feel like I can set the boundaries.
I would limit myself to DD before going to sleep and could easily cope with being at work and interacting with people. The last month or so I've noticed a change where I feel distant from everyone.…Continue
I haven't gotten much sleep lately. I took a four hour nap today, and now my dazed state is making me daydream more. At least, that's what I think. I am lying in the hospital room with my mother with limited battery (due to breaking my charger, oops), and this neglection to doing anything is making me daydream. I have been avoiding it by using videos and anime. Daydreaming takes up so much of my time, that I had to avoid it somehow.
Well, that's all I have for now.
I was surfing online and I found this awesome website about MD. It has some interesting perspectives. I recommend you check it out here! Anyways, dream on my friends!

I'm almost finished writing a poetry book and I felt like I should share just a few poems that relate to MD.

I'm slowly drifting to the end of the earth.
I'm slowing become someone else.
Losing my mind.
I have been a maladaptive daydreamer my whole life...or ever since I could remember. But honestly, I don't remember much. I have close to zero recollection of my childhood. I don't remember last week hardly at all. I have wonderful short term memory, kinda. I remember important things like eating, sleeping, and going to school. But I don't have any memory of little things. I will set my phone down and walk away, I come back in a frantic search to find my phone because I don't remember…Continue
I signed up for this site a couple months ago and just noticed I finally got approved like a week ago. So that's good. :)
So when I first read about maladaptive dreaming it really resonated with me. A lot. I couldn't believe that maybe there actually was a name for what was wrong with me. I've been so isolated my entire life.
It's kind of a relief. I hope to find the answers I've been looking for.
The other day I was thinking about a daydream that ended two years ago. And I tried to trigger myself into doing it again! From an outside perspective this is incredibly bizarre, seeing as the ~two years I had the daydream were the worst two of my life.
I was experiencing a strange sort of confidence in my own ability to resist the daydream. I looked at triggering images and then I referenced the daydream in a conversation to someone who did not know the context. It gave me this…Continue

I am currently working on a photography/art project about Maladaptive Daydreaming.
I am quite a daydreamer myself, this is how I got interested in the topic. I want to find out as much as possible about your experience in order to reveal it to other people in a visual way and raise awareness to this condition and moreover explore human subconsciousness in general. If you could please fill out this…Continue
