Escaping wonderland.... (1st post)

"Maladaprive Daydreaming."

So that's what's going on in my head! At last, I know!

...But I still have MD. It can't magically disappear just because I know. Damn!

Probably sounds familiar, right? I'm on the correct escaping path,  but my brain is still a mess. I need to organize it.  So...I am going to write down my progress. You are probably the only people who can understand me, so if you feel that something's off, feel free to call me crazy (it's better if I…

Radio show volumn way low.

so sorry for the low volumn! I used a new hands free headset for my phone. No volumn control on it. Not sure what I'll do next week. If I have to hold the phone I won't be able to type in chat.

My Friend Found Out. Help me.

EDIT: MY FRIEND IS NOT SCHIZOPHRENIC. SOMEONE ELSE IS. There was a badly written line that caused confusion

She knows, and I'm terrified. I've promised to tell her everything. Help.

I'm a fanfiction writer, and on my profile, I used to have a small paragraph explaining what MD was and how I think it helps me to think of stories. My friend recently started on there too, and I said she could look at my profile, but not read my stories (I'm the same for…

Help for You

Hello people, I have accepted the fact that I will always be a daydreamer. I just need to learn how to control it

more. I was going to go see my doctor again soon to get a new prescription, maybe ask her if I can try Ritalin or

something because even people who don't have ADD use Ritalin and it helps them study. I was also gonna go see a

cognitive behavior therapist even though I've been saying this forever and have never gotten around to calling

her. I talked to…

Quick Update

I just thought I'd give another little update on myself.

Lets see, for some reason my medication is actually worsening my numbness. It seems to make me feel worst mentally yet my mom says I'm acting more like myself lately. Especially the fact I'm actually letting her touch me, because before this medicine I wouldn't even let her poke me. It is very odd.

Another thing is somehow I can't hold a daydream really and when I do it just makes me feel worst so I stop…

This is What I Call A True Friend...

Hello everyone,

Wow...Wild Minds has been buzzing with activity lately! I remember when I first joined I was lucky to see a post once a week on here. Now there are multiple posts every day, and I'm lucky if I even get to read any of them!

For those of you who haven't talked to me on here before-or even heard of me-my name is Jennifer, and I'm 15 years old. I discovered last November about MD, and I have been part of this site since then. I remember when I used to be a rookie to…

Radio show one month anniversary

Done four shows so I guess that's a month. For the first time I had two callers on the last show, it was prerecorded so I couldn't stop it to answer them. But this Saturday I plan to go live so I can. Very frightened at the thought of it. Maybe a total disaster. If so I'll go back to recording it. Maybe it will help with my shyness but I hope there will not be allot of dead air. Hoping for the best.

Using Diet as treatment for mental illness

There are suggested diets for treatment of Schizophrenia, so it may help MD as well. I found some on livestrong.com, I just searched for treating Schizophrenia with diet and found it. My son has Schizophrenia. Their recommendations are:

Reduce sugar, carbohydrate and caffeine intake. This will help your blood sugar stay balanced. Many drugs prescribed to treat schizophrenia can mess with your blood sugar, so avoiding excess stimulants can help keep it at a desired level. A study…

Therapy

Hey guys! If you have been keeping up with me, you probably know I was posting long blog rants and complain non-stop a while back. I eventually stopped that but still wasn't content.

Anyways well now I just thought I'd tell you guys I'm going to therapy now. My therapist gave me an unofficial diagnosis of social anxiety and depression.  As of right now, I won't be able to see the psychiatrist for about a month. However my therapist didn't want me to suffer for a whole another month so…

Don't want to get caught.

Okay, I started tertiary study a couple of weeks ago, and now drive myself out there. It's about a 35min drive.

After a few days, and finally getting used to driving myself, I've started singing out loud, a lot, and loudly, and sometimes even talk out loud to a character who isn't there (and no, I don't delude myself into thinking they're there. I know they're not). I'm kind of scared that if I drive someone somewhere, and we don't talk, I may end up singing out loud or…

Project ideas

Sorry, I know I use this website a lot for un MD related things but I like the fact that I can talk to a range of people and get a wide variety opinions on things, so I might as well use it to my advantages :).

So in 10th grade at my school we have to do something called the personal project, and basically you have to work on a project of your choice for a little over half a year, and it has to produce some sort of outcome or physical result. Some typical projects are…

Hello, Again. I've Missed You All. (Remember Me? I'm The One With All The Rants.)

Um... Hey,

It's been a while since I've been on this site. A lot of you probably don't even know who I am. I'm Lizzie... A few months ago, I spent a lot of time lurking this site. I had just found out that my living nightmare had a name, MD, and reading the blogs and posts of others helped me understand that I was not alone. I wanted to talk to everyone, and post regular blogs and comments. Yet, life got in the way.

A lot has changed for me…

It's all in your point of view

There is no normal. Normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.

Need input, want to share?

I'm reserching for the MD radio show and want to do a show on characters. I would love to have some input from you all on what to discuss about our characters. This is what I have so far as an outline,

Are you in your Daydreams?

Where do your characters come from? TV, movies, books, real life, made up?

Do you think all the characters are some part of your own subconscious?

Has your…

MDD just another outlet for an addictive personaity?

 I know that this take on MDD is nothing new but I was reading a book on alcoholic addiction and I would say that

MDD is pretty close to alcoholism. Meaning that some of us have lost complete control and dwell  24/7 in a DD.

Behind the scenes however, alot of us  are unaware of co-existing depression /anxiety related disorders that fuel MDD.

Willpower could not help us because we are bio- chemically set up to self-medicate through MDD.We NEED to DD or else we get…

I think my son has MD also

After learning about MD I really started wondering about him having it. He seems to have all the signs. He has never had close friends, all thru school. He is 23 now. Introverted, stays to himself. We talked about it last night and I told him about MD and the symptoms. He says he has always been that way. But it doesn't seem to interfer with his life so much. So maybe his is not as bad. But he has epilepsy and is on meds, so it may help control his MD as well. I wish he had talked to me…

Introduction

I feel as if I should introduce myself. My name is Luna, I live in the US and I am a teenager.

 

I started to daydream when I was 9 or 10, and at the time it was harmless. Just something to do on long car rides. But it evolved into something much more than that. It began to consume my life. I began to daydream for hours at a time, and I could no longer focus on anything because of my daydreaming. I drove away all of my friends because of daydreaming, and I started to question…
