Hello, and Thanks.

Holy cow! After years of thinking I was the only clown with this problem it's both a relief and completely hysterical to discover I am not alone! I'm not here to confess my sins but I will share a few thoughts and experiences on this affliction, for anyone interested. I'm 48 years old and have been daydreaming for what seems like forever. There were traumas early in my life, which may have been the trigger to take daydreaming beyond a healthy moderation. Whatever it was, once I started I…

What are your new year resolutions?

 A good way to become more in control of your MD is to set goals for yourself to think about and help you stay more focused on reality. Have you made any?

 Mine are:

 1) Start exercising

 2) Start writing a book (about my MD)

 3) Spend more time with family

 4) Get first job

 5) Be the best girlfriend I can be :-)

Staying out of Wonderland (my strange wall)

Happy new year, everyone!!! :D

Double celebration for me: one month since I escaped MD!

I am still confused sometimes: it feels like having a wall at the back of my brain, that doesn't let me think clearly. And when I say "I feel" it's not a metaphor, it feels solid and has been bugging me for years. I even wondered if it is a brain problem. But, recently, there are moments when this block is lifted and, suddenly, reality becomes interesting. My brain functions on a…

i must ask

when some of you say you use characters from shows/movies, do you mean the actual character or what.



for example.......edward cullen from twilight, lets say.



do you actually daydream about edward cullen? and put different characters into one daydream or something? or are you just using robert pattinsons body for your character and completely changing his personality/name/ and what not



i dont know, i get confused with that.



because i may use people from…

Newfound information, learning about myself is eye opening.

Hi, 

Its emily here. First off, let me say how glad I am to have found this site. Im 21, and ive daydreamed since i was 5. Up until now, when i ran across this site and found out that this existed, i always thought of myself as schizophrenic. I create people in my mind, and then i play out stories with them for countless hours a day, and the same people have been in my head for years. I thought i was the only person who did this, and its a relief to know that other people go…

Betraying family with daydreaming?

We are all daydreamers here. Can you relate or help me out with my problem?

My dreamworld exists in a different place and time and my real family isn't in it. In fact, most characters I identify with are orphans and have at least one sibling (in real world, I'm only child). Everytime one of my family members snaps me out of my DDing, I look at them for a moment as they were strangers and I don't know where I'm. It is hard to explain. I could describe my feelings as if I was an adopted…

Planning on writing a book about my MD experience and need support!

 I've been thinking about writing a book about my MD experience to inspire others with the disorder, the obsession, the anxiety, and letting it consume my life to the point of my doctor recommending to my mom to send me to the behavioral health center. It really screwed me up.

 Now the idea of writing about it keeps popping back into my head, but I keep retreating back to the reality I live in now, for the fear of letting it take over me again. Much support is appreciated.…

Can MD also be related to Limerence?

Limerence is when you become so obsessed with somebody that you start to constantly fantasize about them, like saving them from a crisis and being a hero; or at least in my experience. So can MD be related to that?

I'm not crazy!

Ok, so for as long as I can remember, I have felt somewhat different to my age cohort, never really fitting in and always holding a large part of myself back. I figured that people my age wouldn't understand that most of my life is tangled up in make-believe, and that I'd be even more of an outcast if they ever found out.



I can't remember exactly when the daydreaming began to get out of hand, but I'm pretty sure I was still in my mother country at the time. I always got into trouble… Continue

Plushies and shadows and helpers, oh my!

I am SO happy to have finally found a place where I can talk about my daydreams, and people get it! YAY! =D

First up: Plushies. One of my more recent daydreams involves me finding an abandoned  filly Pinkie Pie in a cardboard box, and was sparked by a fanfiction story called "My Little Dashie". About a week ago, maybe two, I was at Walmart when I saw a Pinkie Pie plushie. She is the perfect size to be a "real" filly Pinkie. So I bought her, and have since…

My experience

I'm not sure when I started daydreaming like this, but it has been a very long time. As a child, I started adopting/creating fictional characters as my parents, siblings, and friends. That habit has continued to grow and evolve from childish daydreams when I couldn't sleep into daily daydreams that are a continuation of a story that has been happening for years. My daydreams are my safe space inside my own head, and they're what I turn to when life is too stressful. It's calming, and allows…

hm

do you ever have those nights where the music you're listening to triggers your MD so much that you can't stop pacing to the point where you consider duct taping yourself to the floor so you can focus on whatever you're doing

because that's how i feel tonight

Does anyone worry about bad DD's coming true?

I don't normally daydream negatively, but if i ever do, i feel bad about it... Like they'll come true. I don't want them to, and I don't even know why I do it, but I can't help it. Has any bad DD come true? Do you think, if it did, it would be our fault?

I'm going to meet my main character.

So, for Christmas i got tickets to this thing in March, where both my characters will be, because they're real people, and as I've mentioned before, I have DD'ed about the same two people for 2 years and cant stop. Now, I am excited I can finally meet them, but im afraid. Im scared they wont be the people I want them to be or something... I dont know. I mean, i guess its just like meeting a celebrity for "other people". Im just freaked out... Anyway. Merry Christmas (or whatever) :)

Feeling connected

 So, I never told you guys about my problem. So, that's it-

   I always feel connected to this world. I feel energy flowing through me. I can feel positive energy and negative energy and events related to them. I can feel feelings of people close to me. Through my dreams I could see , what next will happen, I do visit new and completely unknown places in my dreams and after few days or months, found myself there. It's so confusing. Right now, I can just feel something, but couldn't…

Story and such

So like two people in my hello post asked me to talk about my MD, as in if I like it and also my story with it. So story first, goods or evil later. 

I have always daydreamed but by the time I hit around 6 years old my life kind of went downhill. This can appear slightly dramatic nut trust me I'm getting there. This was when I started schooling and basically from the moment I stepped in school I have been bullied, ridiculed and alienated in every possible manor or form. I have…
