life is so much better

Although I created an account long ago, this is my first log in. I just have to say it, my life is so much better. Have you ever felt a breeze of peace wrap your entire body? I had no idea that maladaptive dreaming existed. Since that discovery, I tried to stop daydreaming. I was able to complete tasks without procrastinating and actually focus on things. The daydreams were only there because I wanted to escape the reality of being me. Now, I see life in a different perspective. What can I say?… Continue

Accepting Things

Although I really hate to accept this I realize that maybe there is no cure for this. Maybe there will never be a cure for this at all. Plus I don't think this problem is psychological, I think it's neurological. Maybe our brains are forced to have a different way of working because of a neurological problem. I don't know if a neurological problem can be fixed but I've given up hope for a cure, I'm pretty sure I'll live the rest of my life with this. Oh well.

It's Been Two Years...

Wow.

Has it really been two years since my last visit to this site?

I used to come on here daily, often just to lurk about and chat. This site helped me through a really rough time in my life… I found this site way-back-when, back when I was suffering from severe depression and thought I was the only one in the universe who was addicted to their own daydreams. This site, and the knowledge that others out there went through the same…

Sharpen your mind and Daydream!

"You want to quiet the noise in your head to solidify that fragile germ of an idea," says Dr. Jung-Beeman at Northwestern.

Here's some advice I used before. If you have a sharp mind, you can daydream all you want ... you will feel good and still have self-control. Play puzzle games (Chess, Sudoku etc...). If you have Facebook search Brain Buddies. It's my favorite game on Facebook.…

My story of illusion vs reality

I'm done jumping back and forth from blog to blog ranting about things that are bordering off-topic, so I'll just put it all here.

Some say daydreaming is a curse, others say it's a tool. What I say is that it is what you let it become. In my case, it's become a monster, a completely different, intricate and complex dimension that has mixed and stacked with reality. It has free reign on my memories, dictates how I feel, dictates every damned detail of my life, because I unconsciously…

The Real Power of Daydreaming and how to control it.

We are usually told that daydreaming is a waste of time and energy and mental power etc... but the ability to daydream gives you flexibility in your daily lives.

Daydreaming isn’t a waste of time, as we’re often told, but the gateway to Creativity, Problem-Solving and even to the realisation of our Potential.

Let me be the example of this; I might be…

Marijuana and MD

For those who use marijuana do you think it effects you. I use to be a social user and it was fine, now I have become a more frequent user and I feel that it makes me depressive. Instead of daydreaming while high I think about the root of my daydreaming addiction. Also I start to over analyze my daydreams and that gives me anxiety and also it makes me harder on my self for being a "crazy person." Let me know your experience with MD and MJ. Does it effect you at all?

Aging with MD

I just found out what MD was in December and was not aware that there were other s like me. I worry that my MD will develop into schizophrenia as a become elderly. Similar to when dementia or Alzheimer patients are confused about which reality they are in and minds are often in a different time period. Will I at some point not recognize the difference between reality and my daydreams or will I believe that my daydreams were once my reality? Please let me know if you have the same fears or if…

Need relationship/crush advice. Don't know who else to talk to and it's driving me md!

So basically I've stupidly hooked up with a friend whilst drunk a few times. I've had a huge crush on him for a few years but never thought I'd be in with a chance. Im feeling pretty shitty as im now developing feelings for him again and dont wanted be rejected if I was to tell him I like him. He doesn't contact me after our nights together but will speak to me if I see him out. We arent close friends that hang out all the time. Does it sound like it's just a hookup to him or should I tell him… Continue

New tattoos

I got 2 new tattoos this week!  The first is one honoring our beloved Dr. Cynthia Schupak, whom I call "Mom".  She's been like an angel to me.  The other one is just a little heart on my left pinkie.  I now have 9 and plan to get more.  …

I've been begging for love for 20 years and counting

I'm not sure I'm a classic Maladaptive Daydreamer. I don't make up elaborate stories or characters. I used to, but my daydreams or whatever these states are became repetitive monologues. I'm 33 years old (F) and I've never experienced reciprocated romantic love, although I've been constantly in love since age 14, always with someone who did not return my feelings. My daydreams are scary, basically I'm begging the present love of my life to love/hold/stay with/come back to/make love to me. I…

Things Have Changed

My life has completely evolved from what it was when I last posted on here almost a year ago. Long story short, I am now sick, physically sick, and have had to accept that I will be for the rest of my life. It's all still very new, and I've had to change my entire life style. However, during this process I had to deal with the real world. I had to focus on my health and life and grades, so there was no time to MD. I think that I've gotten way better at handling it, although somedays I do get…

Update

Hi, All.  How is everyone doing?  I'm doing a bit better.  I'm enjoying my tube feeds at night and feeling stronger.  I've lost a bunch of weight and have been having fun enjoying dressing up.  I found some great winter clothes on sale, and every time I go out looking good, I feel so much better.  The other day, I was even photographed for a local news site.  It was very flattering.  I still look fat in the pics, but oh well.  I know I'm doing better.  Today, I went to Target and bought a…
