A little deviation from the usual rants

The young woman woke up, her eyes opening up to a scenery quite different from the one she was in mere seconds before.

"Are you all right?" asked another female voice. She looked up. The two had never seen each other before, but it was obvious that this one had been there for much longer. "Not a nice trip, was it?"

The newcomer sat down, still trying to understand what was happening. "Who... Who are you? Where are we?"

"My name is Ima. I don't really know what this place is, but…

Vent

I've been on Wildminds for quite some time now & I've noticed a large number of people hate their DDing & want it to stop. That is not the case for me. I very much enjoy my DDing & feel it provides me solace. It's annoying then when reality interferes, making DDing difficult. Even if it's a positive life event, it throws off my regular DDing habits. A friend of mine is trying to get me on a blind date with her husbands friend. This is annoying on multiple levels. It derails my… Continue

My Medium for MD ~ NE

Hello again, its me, Kitty. Yes, this boring girl whom sucks at describing things in real life. I hath cometh back with another story, thanks to Pixie (who just posted), so you can thank her for this monstrosity. But honestly, I somewhat don't want to type this.

TV producer in NYC seeking interviewees in NY-NJ-Conn area -can remain anonymous

Hello.  This is Cordellia, site founder and admin.  I spoke to a woman who is a TV producer in NYC, and she's looking to help spread the word about Maladaptive Daydreaming so that the world will know more and be more accepting, which is greatly needed.  She is seeking one or two people to be interviewed.  They can be anonymous if desired.  It will not be live, and she's happy to talk with them in advance if that helps.  I've pasted her message with contact info below. 

"I am a…

Hey, Don't Mind Me - ZO

Hi. So I'm the ZO part of this account. My buddy NE has already posted her tragic backstory (Kitty, I'm gonna talk to you later 'bout that), so I figured I might give mine. Not that I think anyone will care, but ya never know.

BTW I will probably refer to myself as Pixie instead or ZO, so...

Anyway. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Sorry, got side tracked. In about seventh grade, I finally got around to reading Harry Potter. I know, what took me so long? I…

A Brief History of Dreaming

(This is the first in a series of posts attempting to trace my life through my daydreaming. Sadly, the brief bit in the title probably won't stay true as we go on, but I couldn't resist. I use the term dreaming specifically in relation to maladaptive daydreaming--it's just easier for me to type and is how I've always related to my fantasies before I realized there was an actual term for it.)

What can I pinpoint as my earliest…

Daydream Career

Making a career out of daydreaming, okay the word career is definitly not real, atleast not yet, but I got the proof back from my first novel, a YA story that was built out of daydreaming.  I'm so very stoked and I hope it's just one of many.  It makes writing so easy, my mind is able to build and enjoy and love the stories. I have bad days, I'm not going to say I don't, but I get so much joy out of daydreaming and putting them on paper.  It's the best way to make the stories real.  Okay,…

Techniques

Greeting to all wild Minds: 

Are there techniques that you use to successfully keep your daydreaming under control?

Thanks

This could contribute to studies on MD: Why is MD still a secret of my life...

I thought maybe if I talk about what stops me from visiting a counsellor or revealing my mental health status (also emotional health) to my family, it could contribute to any research or survey related to maladaptive daydreaming. So here's what I have to say.

1) In India people see stress, anxiety and depression as something that is a normal part of academic life of a student. Greater the level of studies, greater will be the stress and depression. Many times it is true. As the exams get… Continue

The hard decision:What to do with my life??

Hi my dear friends.

it's been a while since i visited this site.There's a question i'd like to know what your opinion.

How can you determine the difference between a daydream and a goal?i've always daydreamed about becoming an entrepreneur and right now i'm finishing university as a chemical engineering bachelor and i just wonder if i should pursue this? I mean if i'm not the type to become a good entrepreneur(maybe because i'm less social than others) or even not the…

Triggers

I'm much more social now than I ever have been in my life, but certain things still trigger my need to withdraw into my fantasy world. For the past 9 months, I watched a close friend die of cancer. We had become close over the past four years, but something always held me back from getting more deeply involved with him. As he got closer to death, I found myself going into my fantasy world. He died three weeks ago and right after that is when I discovered this website.

The Good Queen and Her Inspiration

The Queen Victoria Corona of the Reformed States of America

My daydream I have built over the last ten years has many characters that I directly base off of people I know. The most important and pivotal character, Queen Victoria Corona is based 100% off of this girl I liked in middle school. In my real life I…

Been falling for a while. Won't be pretty when I hit the ground.

Maybe someone will sense a bell ringing after reading this, maybe no one will. Doesn't change it much.

I've had my senses shrouded in daydreams since 2009, but I have reason to speculate it began as far back as 2003. That makes it a significant percentage of my existence. During this time, its form, meaning, purpose and functioning have all changed multiple times, sometimes subtly, sometimes drastically, ranging from spaceships to weird striped aliens to battles between demigods, and in…

60 years of daydreaming

Yes, it's true. I've been daydreaming since I was a very small child. I grew in a very chaotic and unpredictable household. Daydreaming was the only escape. I continued to do it in school, I think, because it was stressful to be there with all those other kids. There was no end to the stress, so I went even deeper when I got to Junior High. In fact, a teacher actually commented to me that I could leave the room, being physically present but absent otherwise. I had to be there so it was the…

Almost two years on (update)

I haven't visited this site for quite a while but recently I've seen a comment from DebbieP (hi,Debbie!) that made me go back to the post 'My life is perpetual moulding and disintegration' to see how much things have changed.

And they changed a lot.

First of all, yes Debbie, I managed to complete my dissertation and it was the best dissertation of the year. What is more, two months ago I completed another successful dissertation that gave me master's degree.

Currently I…

College- And it's helping

Hello!

It's been a very long time since I posted on here. Long story short, my life almost ended last year after a couple of medical problems. During the hospital stays and endless "sitting in bed" I used MD to cope. 

Now I'm in college. I've been here for about 3 months, and I love it! I was so concerned about my MD problems. Living with a roomate, and being around people constantly, it scared me. I thought that it would control my life and wouldn't be social. Now- I…

Need to talk to someone.

Hey guys, this is my first post on here. I managed quit MDD about 6 months ago after about 10 years of daydreaming (I'm 17), but I've fallen back into doing it again and I can't stop. Talking to someone would help so much, since nobody in my life knows about this. My number is (954)-471-0934 (I created another number for this, I'm not giving out my real # over th internet dw). Thanks guys, I'm so glad I'm part of this community :)

Dressing like your character

Today I went shopping for new clothes and found myself buying only things my MD character would wear. I normally wear very casual, comfortable clothes, but today I shopped for items that were more stylish and trendy like those I imagine on my character.

It felt great to try on the clothes and I really felt comfortable in them, a stronger more confident version of myself I guess. I bought them all. 

Now I'm at home and wondering, is that a positive move ..like I'm…

The Connection between MD and Sleep?

I'm starting to wonder if the parts of the brain that are responsible for dreaming at night, during REM sleep are responsible for daydreaming as well. I've noticed recently, that my MD's are more prevalent in the mornings (as I am waking up) and the context of my daydreams are more unrealistic and troubling than they are throughout the rest of the day. 

I've also found that the dreams I wake up and remember can trigger hour-long daydreams that follow the same themes while I am…
