Dear Daydreamers: it's going to be okay.

Dear Maladaptive Daydreamers,

I know it's tough.  I've been dealing with Maladaptive Daydreaming for all of my life.  For most of my life, it was in absolute control of me.  I was certain that it would never get better, let alone end, but it has...completely.  

The journey began in 2007...if you can even call that a real beginning, for I was a long way away from even learning what this was, but that is where I began because that is when I found my courage.…

Meditation and Vampires

Just wanted to record the fact that I'm starting a meditation class tomorrow. It meets the next four saturdays. I've wanted to learn how to meditate for years and I'm hoping to be able to find a comfortable set of brakes for my daydreaming. 

This has been a hard couple of weeks. I started watching True Blood(oh beautiful vampire t.v.) and my mind has completely absorbed it.  It's all I think about.  I stay up all night binging the show.   I want to lay in bed for hours…

pacing is ruining my house pt 2

i wasn't even pacing for one minute when i ran into the wall again and broke ANOTHER picture frame... probably the fifth one. i always tell my mom that the pictures randomly fell off the wall and broke, but i think she knows it's my MD. ive told her about it before, but she told me to stop telling her about it because it scares her. that was 5 years ago. i move into my apartment in september... i managed not to break anything in my dorm last year, but i don't know how i'm going to explain it…

A Story Without a Villan (2)

Second installment of the backstory of my alternate self, Amara Bouchard:

After arriving in Paris, France, in 1793, Amara met a 30 year old nobleman named Jacques. He was still unmarried and found her very charming and beautiful. After conversing with her at a coffee shop in downtown Paris, he invited to his home to see his library, as she was very fond of reading. Amara lied to him and told him that she was waiting until her family arrived in the city and just needed to stay…

How I Ended Up Here - NE

Hello friends. I'm NE of this joint account, although I'm not sure my friend will post anytime soon. I've been suffering from MD for a while now, probably not as long as other people, but long. In fact, I'm not sure how long I've had it, I could have had it my whole life, or perhaps only a few years, I only noticed it as a problem when I was in seventh grade. But enough of my ramblings, onto the story.

~Quick side note, I often will refer to…

Ok ok, I give up.

So I said I was not going to talk much about my DD, I have to ask a question. I know this should go in the forum, but I am having trouble posting and I HAVE to get this out. 

I am in a relationship with this guy. Is it ok to daydream about us? I am worried that because we are so young we are going to split and my heart will be even more broken because I DD about us. Ok, we are not THAT young, like middle school, but pretty far along the path of teenage years. Will my heart be broken…

Meditation and MDD!

Well, my Dad has recently taken the initiative to connect with his spiritual self and he's been persistently trying to convince me to accompany him on this 'spiritual journey'. As most of you are already aware that one of the most common spiritual practice is meditation. And as far as I have understood from the video lectures that I have been forced into watching, it is in-fact a way to relax yourself by shutting down your brain, simply embracing nature by focusing on it and cleansing…

Please

I want a life without you

Please just turn your back on me.



I want a life of pure existence

Please just vanish immediately.



I want a life of genuine happiness

Please just disappear from me.



I want a life of unfathomable liberty

Please just emancipate my heart completely.



I want a life of unpretentious peace

So please release my mental captivity.



I want a life of uncomplicated unity

Please just let me go… Continue

Hey!

So I wan't to share this funny poem I found. I think my blog is not really going to be too much about my daydreams because there are groups for that. I warn you, this poem contains one swear word. 

When I die

My atoms will come undone

Ill be space dust once again

the wind will carry me

scatter me everywhere

like dandelions in springtime

ill visit worlds and alien moons

ill be so damn poetic

till I land on your sandwich :)

How is maladaptive daydreaming related to other mental abnormalities?

Like boderline personality disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder?

Real Time

before, after, past,present, now, the time to be

choice,to choose

we live on this planet unaware of what is actually going on in this time/space stuck in a loop until our end,

freedom what is it,where is it, if it is still

what is free and who made free,free

do you know what it is to be living flesh in this current time

or

what have we become is it that we are human or something else,

to be apart to a world where if a profit is not made it…

Another Me

There's another me. It's terrifying.



There's another me that I dont want to be by my side but never leaves me when everyone will.



There's another me who messes my life but brought it altogether when no one else will.



There's another me that I hate but cares for me more than anyone will.



There's another me who I despise to see everytime in the mirror but desires to make me laugh when there's no one to cheer me up.



There's another me that I… Continue

increase in daydreaming

i've always been comfortable with my daydreaming and i've always told myself that i don't want to stop until i'm engaged or married because i'll feel like i'm cheating on my husband with my main/favorite male daydream character. after i got into my first real relationship last summer, i thought i wouldn't have to worry about that anymore. my daydreaming lessened each day as i fell more and more in love with this real life guy who actually liked me back. it never fully stopped, but it got to…

i couldn't tell anyone

im happy i've found this network. i've never told anyone about my mdd since i was a child. i walk over the house for hours making weird face expressions but nobody knows i daydream while doing that. i feel really shy. i'm ADDICTED to daydreaming and i'm not sure i want to get rid of this because daydreaming makes me happy.
i found out that i wasn't alone.
could you tell a therapist/your family about it? do you think this is a symptom of another disorder?

A Former Member of Wild Minds has Passed Away

I'm someone who has been active on this website since late 2012. In my early days here, I met a lot of friends. My first and best friend I made was a man named Liam. He was most active here in late 2012 and 2013, so I doubt most people who are active now will know who he is, but he was amazing guy with a heart of gold and who had been a very good friend of mine since we met. 

Early this year, something horrible happened to Liam. He found his mother and grandmother murdered in a…
