31/10/12 - A Special Halloween Edition

Hallow's eve. A day when the door to our world from that of the spirits is open for those who wish to enter. There's only one thing to do on this sinister, macabre and altogether supernatural day; take our kids out and bang on the doors of tired, fed-up people to ask for sweets, of course. 



     I didn't get up to much today. Watching the 'Telly-box' mostly. This afternoon as the sun set, and the swarms of families set out to find the most welcoming and wealthy house holds to call… Continue

30/10/12

Had a rather enjoyable day today. I decided that i would break out of my usual routine of sitting around watching TV all day, and do something less lethargic. I began with more reading from 'The Time Machine', in which i learnt that going down strange, darkened wells ill equiped is rather precarious. The story is quite metaphorical, in my opinion, with respect to mankind and society; the Eloi representing the innocence and naïvity of humans. The author uses the Morlocks, on the other hand to… Continue

Inspiration to document my daydreams visually

Ashlee's blog post of her character outfits inspired me to do story boards of some of my DD themes. Compilations of images that somehow remind me of my daydream themes. It will be the first creative outlet I have tried for a very long time. 

I feel the need to somehow save the daydreams, honor my "friends" my worlds, lives etc. I don't write creatively so stories are out of the question, besides I don't want to tell it all, I would feel too exposed. But if I put together images that…

Been gone for a few days

Sorry to all the new people who had to wait a few days for approval.  I've been away from the computer for a few days for a very good reason.  I was supposed to go in for a procedure Friday morning, but before I could start the cleanse the night before, I started having horrible stomach aches.  I did the cleanse anyway, and it made me sick to my stomach, but the stomach pains just got worse and worse.  I figured I was just being a big baby, but after about 6 hours, I gave up and called 911…

Frustration having to do with MDD

Whenever I haven't daydreamed in a while, I become extremely irritated, the littlest things will set me off and make me upset. I believe that I am very strong and show little feelings but sometimes when I haven't daydreamed in a while I become more emotional. So I just felt that I should let that be known

subconscious to conscious

   well, everyone does day dream, but it totally depends upon us, how much we should? Mostly it starts when we expect something, which is not possible in our day to day life and then we get into a virtual world of our mind- called twilight zone, where nothing is impossible. We enjoy that virtual reality and after a time period it starts to overwhelm our actual world. And hence somewhere we become unhappy, tired or frustrated after day dreaming, because our little alert conscious mind sends…

29/10/12

Monday. A usually tedious start to the week fails to live up to expectations as i have the week off. Due to the aforementioned holiday, i'm back at home and having to write on an ipod. It's being written in 'notes' and i'm going to copy and paste to Wildminds, so apologies for more error in grammer, graphology or spelling than usual.



     The journey back to Sheffield wasn't great, if i'm honest. I set off to the station only to find that i had been ill informed by my mother about… Continue

Escaping Wonderland (stepping out, at last?)

Ah, I haven't been here for some time. But I haven't been much into DD, either. My life has been too fast-paced the last week: I'm changing house-and life.

I have good news: my plans worked, and I seem to be cured!!! I've found most of my poisonous triggers. I've unburried major desires, major parts of my personality, and took steps to bring them into my real life. This calmed down my overactive imagination.

For example, I got in an arts team, in the city I just moved…

I've been really depressed lately.

I just don't  care about anything. I cannot feel alive. I cannot care about the 'real' world or 'real' people. This world feels less real than my own.

I tried to explain it to my therapist. She doesn't understand. She can't see the possibility that it isn't autism (my main diagnosis) related. She thinks when I say that I don't feel 'connected' to people that I mean that I'm not understanding what the other person means or is feeling when I literally mean I feel like I am on a…

Has this Ever Happened to Any of You, Or is it Just Me?

Hello fellow MDers,

It's me, Jennifer again. I actually have a question for you all, so it would be very much appreciated if you could give me a response to my Blog.

Two weeks ago, I was in my basement daydreaming, and it was about 11:00 at night. (On a Friday). And I realized I was falling asleep on the…

yeee buddddyyyyyyyyy

yeeee budddyyyy  i went to my cognitive behavioral therapist today (first session). and it turns out that i don't have maladaptive daydreaming and instead that I have an active mind. A really active mind.

I forgot to ask her what the difference between md and an active mind is but i will ask her next time.

anyways she said that i use md as a way to escape boredom and that people with md are always daydreaming. I only daydream when i am bored and doing something…

I NEED TO VENT IT OUT

24/10/12

                Whilst sitting here on YouTube watching a video of the best bits of the Ricky Gervais podcasts, a section about Karl Pilkington starting his diary came on. (After almost dying of laughter) I decided I would be interesting to begin my own diary, with this being my first entry.

                The day began with a chicken sandwich on wholemeal bread. The poultry was questionable, but what do you expect from Tesco’s own, thin sliced, one pound fifty for a thousand slices…

DIARY OF A STUDENT WHO DECIDED TO WRITE A DIARY

         I've decided to keep an online record of daily events, I'm not anticipating that anyone will even consider reading it, but if you do, I'd appreciate it so much and feel free to leave a comment or question and I'll get back to you as soon as possible if it's relevant for me to do so. The entries will be on separate blog posts entitled the date they were written.

         It's also unclear to me how interesting it will be to others here as i won't be mentioning MD unless…

Introducing myself and my long kept secret

I'm really glad to have stumbled on this site today. Last night I realized its been 8 years since I've been daydreaming everyday. I'm 20 and want to learn how to get rid of it.

I've never talked to anyone about this because it makes me feel psychotic! It's not normal to have your own world inside of your head. I literally have imaginary friends that I created. I don't talk to them aloud because I know they are not real, but its comforting to be able to sort things out to an…

Writing Goals - Dreaming that my Daydreaming won't stop me.

I'm doing NaNoWiMo - which is the National November Writing Month thing -  http://www.nanowrimo.org - and i'm turning my screenplay into a novel . Hope my daydreaming doesn't stop me as I only have a month to do it. I'm really excited about this. 

If anyone else is doing this - add me as a writing buddy on  the www.nanowrimo.org site. My screen name is mochomito on there and it's the first time I'm doing…

Should i become a film Director?

Hey guys. i'm kind of new here so let me tell you about myself a little.

I'm 16, and i've had a horrible childhood. As a kid, about 6yrs old, i used to daydream a lot but not the maladaptive daydreaming type. Like i would act it out with my friends. And then i started watching movies, live action ones not cartoons, and i started daydreaming about them but only for like a few months and then i would get over it.

Around age 11, my life was going downhill fast (health issues, low…

Meditation... anyone use it?

Has anyone done meditation to help with MD?

Since my last blog post to stop MDing I've been rediscovering myself--I've had some fun, done new things, and met new people--which sounds great. However, the problem is that I still MD (though, it's because I haven't made a strong effort to stop.  I have my set MD time before I go to bed which I thought would make it easier than going cold turkey. Plus I didn't want to avoid all my…
