Dear Doctor....

Dear Doctor,
I know you love your profession. At least I hope you do. I hope you got into this field with a desire to really help people & not just for the money and prestige. I'm saying this because at the age of 30, I find myself disheartened. I've lost faith in you.

I know you're human. That seems to be the number one response. Of course you're human, so let's get that out of the way. I know you're human, and you know I'm human. Good, now that that's…

No more, old friends.

I have absolutely had it with old friends who look at my life for 2 mins & get all sad. When I see you all & how you've gotten what you want, I feel nothing but joy for you. Do you really all think you have the lives I want? I don't. There's not one of you I would trade places with. I congratulate you because I'm happy for you. To get pity in return is nothing but disrespectful. You're not paying attention. Shame on you for not congratulating me on MY life.

Don't Want to Quit But I Can't Keep Living Like This

It seems like everyone else here knows when it started. I have no recollection of a time before this or when the first time would have been.

Unlike many of the other stories I've read, I am not a part of this elaborate, persistant, addictive daydream world. I don't exist in this world in any remote way. It's just a place I create and watch voyeristically with intermittent severity.

This place isn't better than the one I live in. The people who…

Introducing myself.

I'm Michael Gibson (some of my friends call me "Sparky), I live in Albany Oregon and am 53 yrs old. I've had strong sensory independant imagitive abilities sense childhood, but did not find my daydreams becoming addictive until the late '80's. I've always known that I could not be the only one, but did not find this site until today and I just have to say ... Thank god!

Thank all of you for just being you .. and thanks especially to Cordellia for starting this group. (Chalk one up for…

Went for a walk

Went for a long walk around the water front today. Just over 3 miles. I used to do this frequently, but walking always makes me daydream. There's nothing to do but think. I'm too physically awkward to do other exercises. Walking is the only thing that I can do without falling down........and that's just barely. Lol. It's sad & funny but very true. Anyway, doing nothing but lying around & daydreaming, I gained a ton of weight. I must try and get some of it off. I eased myself into it,… Continue

This is my post, there are better and prettier posts than it, but I like this one because it is mine.

Alright. 19 year old guy, full-blown dreamer since I was about 13, earliest I can trace the habit back to is 5. Maybe I've been like this all my life, wouldn't know as my memory is worthless (seems I'm not alone in that).

I suppose it wouldn't hurt to keep a blog of my progress and thoughts. I have already started taking notes so making this for all of you see might turn out beneficial for others as well. Though, knowing my history of consistency, I don't know if I am able to keep up… Continue

Being a bookworm...

So lately I've been reading a while lot more. Both books and fanfiction, but the one thing that annoys me the most is that literally after every sentence I have to stop for a few minutes and daydream. If I try to stop myself from daydreaming while reading I seriously become so exhausted!

And it kind of sucks I admit because before I could easily breeze through reading something but now, it takes hours and hours. *sigh*

I'm not gonna lie though, but it gives me a lot of…

Facing Assorted Fears

Yesterday, I told my mom about this forum. I said "You remember when I used to run around in circles to music when I was a kid?" and she said "You still do that?" I can see how my behavior sounds strange for a 43-year-old. I said "not for three months." The truth is it's been more like 2.5 months, but I thought three sounded better. I don't feel embarrassed about my MD when I talk to new people, but talking to my mom was tough. She got serious and quiet for half a second, which she never…

Picky eating............to the extreme

This goes along with sensory sensitivity, but out of curiosity, how many of you are picky eaters? To what degree?
For me, it's pretty extreme. There's a very limited list of things I'll eat. If anything has anything I don't like in it, that food is completely off limits. I have to know what's in anything before I'll even try it. Most things I won't try. It's to varying degrees. If I even smell or taste butter, I will absolutely get sick to my stomach. I'm not allergic. I just…

Homework on a brain like mine.....

Exam tomorrow. Prof assigned 178 extra credit problems. Has taken so long to get through less than half of them. Focusing & working in 20 second spurts makes

it so hard to get things done. Been at

this for like 3 days. At this point my

head feels strange & I still have 2 hard sections to get through, but I

just can’t make myself do it. It’s not

even that they’re hard. They just

require a lot of work & my body just aches & wants…

In Deep

OK. I had to get this out somewhere and well, this is the only place to get it out. I've been daydreaming hardcore since my boyfriend left to go out. Usually I do it like in between watching TV, going online, etc. Today I am in DEEP. I haven't stopped to do anything. I don't even know why I left I had to get this in words but I did. I never really considered this an addiction. When I found discussion boards online and then found this website, it was the first time I ever thought about it in… Continue

Wow...I just had silence in my head for the first time..

Even if it was just for five seconds it was pretty cool :)

Histrionic personality disorder

Some of you mentioned ADHD or SPD in order to explain their Daydreaming addiction.

After further research, I think mine is deeply conected to Histrionic Personality Disorder although it would desserve the diagnose of a specialist.

I did not think about it because many descriptions point to the fact that this disorder occurs mainly within the female personality, but apparently a few males also have the disorder with synthoms that lightly differs.

My daydreams are mainly… Continue

Has Anyone Done A Vlog?

Hi! I'm the webmaster at http://www.daydreamingdisorder.webs.com/

I check on this site every so often, and I remember reading that someone was going to try Vloging about Maladaptive Daydreaming. If anyone has done that, or has set up some other kind of video, I will look at it and may post a link or embed that on my site (if I can figure out exactly how to do it!) Please let me know if someone does start…

Finally I post one of my daydreams.

This is one that I had several months ago, but just haven't taken the time to write the whole thing down. Actually I had started it, but there was just too much detail and it was taking too long. So instead I have written a brief summary of the story.…

Schizoid Personality disorder

Ive been researching guys and there some massive likeness to SPD.....

"Schizoid individuals are also prone to developing pathological reliance on fantasizing activity as concomitant with their withdrawal from the world. Viewed in this fashion, fantasy constitutes a core component of the self-in-exile"

This is a great resource for all of us daydreamers who have a tough time connecting with people and making friends: http://ning.it/9cYWUC

Birthday un-invitation

Is there ever going to be seen as “normal” and acceptable to be alone? This is something I’ve had to deal with, and with my 30th approaching I need to figure out how to not be ashamed of the fact that I have

no friends or family. People always make the assumption that a person has

such things & the looks they give if/when you dare to let it slip that you

don’t are just unreal. In professional settings, things like references

Hello everyone!

I'm not going to lie, I'm extremely nervous to open up about my disorder, because I feel like a freak. I have been researching on and off for the past year on MD but only recently found all of the information in great detail and I KNOW now that I have it. I guess I just want to get to know everybody and find out what their worlds are like compared to mine.

About me

I was encouraged by a friend to check out this site and share my experiences, partially for the purposes of studying this type of daydreaming. My friend and I both wonder if there are others like me - because when I daydream, I am not in my fantasies. Not ever. They are always focused on pairings based in slash fiction. I have a few different pairings I cycle through - I'll stay with one couple for days, weeks, months... then switch to another. I am constantly spinning stories in my head.…
