Working, a peek at what I do all day.

About a minute of what I do at work all day. So you can see why it is so hard not to daydream.

MEDIA, TECH AND ME

18 VIEWS!! @ 1st post. Cool. People read and understood and commented. Thank You.

So I thought I would post as soon as I uploaded my basic information. But procrastination and a host of other factors got in the way. I realized that I can’t write on the spot in the cyber café. I have to write beforehand. That is because I discovered in the tiny cubicle of the…

First day of doctoral program

Hi all!

I just wanted to post on my first day of orientation for graduate school. I am so exhausted but had so much fun today. I am in training to be a Graduate Student Instructor. Part of our requirement was to give a 5-10 minute presentation and I did really well!  I didn't vomit, anyway! Tomorrow we have another 10 minute scientific teaching presentation to give with just a chalkboard and notes.

I am remembering why I love academia so much - it is incredibly taxing…

If you could make your DD come true

Would you jump at the chance if you had the opportunity to make your DD come true? What if there was a person you had DD about for a while, and then that person suddenly became an interacting part of your life? 

Maybe you've dreamed about that person, and then suddenly you realized, hey this person is here, why not make them enter a real life story...

Would you if you could?

characters

i'm meghan and i'm currently 16. and i feel like i write about this a lot on here, but i'm in love with my characters.

like, i'm really in love with my characters.

i've noticed that a lot of people with MD are really into all the action that happens in their daydreams, always coming up with different situations for their characters to get into and then starting over again. fighting zombies, stranded in the wilderness, going to space...

not me. i've created these…

IMPORTANT NOTICE - I WILL BE GONE FOR A FEW DAYS!

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT NOTICE.  I WILL BE GONE FOR A FEW DAYS, STARTING ON THURSDAY OR FRIDAY OF THIS WEEK.  I don't know when I will be back, but I hopefully won't be gone for too long.

The reason is I will be getting surgery to fix my GERD.  My surgeon said I could be out the next day, but the last time I had surgery and was told that, I was in the hospital for 4 days.

Driving And MD

Hi fellow MDers,



My name is Jennifer, and I am 16 years old. I am a Junior in high school this year, and I just got my Learner's Permit about 2 months ago and passed driving school shortly after receiving the permit. I have to do this thing where the driving teachers have to take me out driving three times, 2 hours each. (3 times total) before I'm eligible to get my license. And, today, I was out driving for my second time with a new teacher, and I could NOT stop zoning out. My gosh!… Continue

hi

So I came across the idea of MD in an article on Yahoo by Penny White. After Googling it reading half a dozen articles and checking the symptoms I’m pretty sure I have it. I’m not too good at writing online or typing things up in general. I went to the cyber café twice but deflected from doing anything. I don’t have access to the net on my laptop which I just started using so I am not able to type online but it forces me to start typing so it was a boon in guise I guess.

I realized I…

Headaches?

Hey there

I was just wondering if anyone else has had any problems with headaches? Not migraine level headaches, just kind of normal, achy ones. I've gotten them for a long time, and I've never had any health or eyesight troubles. I just wondered if this could be an effect from the almost constant daydreaming?

dorm life update + a lil bit of art

hi! sorry for the absence and lack of replies to comments (I'll get on it soon)-- I've moved over a thousand miles away to college and settled into my dorm.

it's weird, since I came here I haven't had more than a passing urge to daydream. maybe it's because I've been busy (moving in, six hour figure drawing workshops, dorm shopping, etc) or maybe it's because I've already accepted that my means of daydreaming is shot. everything here is super social. I have three roommates in a full…

Here goes nothing...

Hi there.

    I just thought it was about time for me to finally let it out. After all, I did come onto this site to find support, and I guess I need to tell you guys about myself for that to work. I know this post is kinda long but... please bear with me. This is kinda scary cause I've never ever ever told ANYONE about any of this stuff. Like a lot of people on this site, I thought i was the only one to experience the way more than normal daydreaming. It really does make me feel…

Does anyone say the truth about the daydreaming or care about what happen if other people see you daydreaming?

In other words, if see you movement "strange" or "anxious".

Do anyone have problem to read?

My trigger is the music and the video games (but the second is less important) but read a book... really get me anxious.

Is anxiety a common symtom for people who have MD?

I've noticed I’ve had more anxiety than my peers for most of my life.

Do people most people with MD have speech problems in the form of studdering or mispronouncing words?

I've have these speech problems and I believe it has something to do with how inflamed or swollen my tongue is.  I take pills with magnesium and vitamins C-D to relieve the inflammation and it usually helps a lot.  I think the cause is do too stress being caused by  my MD.

Electric Larry Land Found

Oh good God!..... Sweet relief at last. *sighs in surrender*



I finally found that reduction in stress I've been looking for. That little distraction that might ease the massive weight of responsibility  upon my shoulders.

That little "something" that could make me forget life for just awhile, to rejuvenate the senses and center myself.



Ya.... I was pacing circles in my garage, mumbling to myself....whatever.....

 It was only an hour and it worked didn't… Continue

Update on Grendel's situation

This is another non-MD story, so forgive me.  It's just on my mind.

I just looked over my budget, and while things are tight, it looks like I'm still on track to be able to afford Grendel's surgery within a couple of months, if the vet will still let me do a payment plan, and I think they will.  I'm saving slowly.  They gave me 2 amounts, a minimum and a maximum.  I'm saving up for the minimum amount, and then I'm going to ask them to do the maximum on a payment plan.…
