Where wild minds come to rest
So, i was curious (more like dying to know) what caused my MD. and i was looking back at things that i wrote when i was 9 to 12 and im still not done! at first from what i read just blown away by the real cause of my MD, then i was immensely happy remembering all the good times i had when my MD was just a miniscule pleasure i did in life... then i got sooo mad.... i was tearing up papers and i was just so pissed of at how much YEARS i have wasted in MD.. but im not going to get into that…Continue
I am 22 and I am a student. I have been suffering from this problem for years and I have tried several things to get rid of this. I had been taking prescription drugs for 3 years, but it didn't help much. I was not aware of the problem back then. I thought I had ADD/ADHD back then. The pyschiatrist told me that I had OCD. Then, I was taking Fluvoxamine,Lonazep, etc. for 3 years. Only now, I came across this website and this condition online. I hope they do find a sloution…Continue
I love the name of this site, it is so apt!
A little intro about me, I am 32, from New Zealand, I have a child, I'm single, I work with teenagers who have intellectual disabilities, and I have a very wild mind.…Continue
i was thinking about what my mom said to me yesterday morning and was just wondering if anybody else thought the same thing or just any thoughts in general about it...so here it goes
my grades have been dropping lately because of my (you guessed it) MD... im not proud of it. but anyways my mom was giving me my daily dosing of threats with the cliche "if you dont pull your grades up then there will be serioius consequences" rant. and she was going on and on about everything she could…Continue
I joined this network quite some time ago, but for some odd reason never kept up with it, but, actually, I need to.
See, I've had this MD problem for a long time, I think since I was 4? Something like that.
I never realized that it was a-what? disorder?- in its own right. You see, I was told that it was a symptom of my depression....or something like that.
No one was even aware that I had this problem until I was in therapy as a teen-then I was told…Continue
this isn't actually from a daydream, it's from a nightmare that I woke up sweating from in the middle of the night. it's about a supernatural disease that drives it's host homicidal.
it can be found on my blog at
thank yew :D
I'm new to the group, and, like everyone else, really just amazed to learn that there are others like me. I'm in my 40's and have had this "habit" since I was three or four years old. Music is my trigger - twirling. MD has been very problematic for me, costing me personally and vocationally. I have deep regret over all of the time that I've wasted in my life. But, I can actually say that now I fantasize less, mainly due to the pain over the realization of the…Continue
Okay, so I have many different fantasies about a particular series of books and I believe that the characters within them are alive. I can even call one a best friend and another a lover. I think that something big has to happen for them to 'come rescue' me. Stupid, right? Yeah, I really have to get over this.…
So i'm 22, and for all of my life i've considered myself to have an overactive imagination - something in which i've never fully admitted to anyone. i will, however, admit that it caused me problems on numerous occasions, but i did my best to withold my day dreaming as much as possible and to seem as social as possible (even though most times i'd rather be alone just lost in my thoughts).
but now i've found this forum, and i'll admit i'm relieved to see that there are so…Continue
Happy New Years everyone.
I've not visited this site for the last couple of months as (out of necessity) I've pulled out of daydream mode. (That I can do this possibly indicates that I have a moderate version of this condition. That my addictive dreaming was late onset .. I was in my 30's when it started .. is another.)
Anyway, I've just finished reading a book on brain plasticity that might interest to many of you. It's called: "The Brain That Changes…Continue

When I found out that there were other people going through what I'm going through; I was extremely excited. I'm not alone anymore and it's such a relief.
I'm currently on winter break for school and I've noticed I've been spending most of it just sitting around dreaming and wasting time. I love to dream and I try and do it…Continue
I realize now why I don't want to stop daydreaming- it's because without MD, I'd still be an awkward person and socially inapt. The only difference is that I'd have no tangible reason for it. MD is something with a name that I can claim as a part of me. Without it, I would go back to being just a weird kid, for no reason at all.
I just want to be something. Anythinig. I have no sense of "me". I guess you could say that I'm scared of the real world, and what it would do to…Continue
I just handed in my final research paper for one of my classes.
Because I handed it in 3 days late, I got a B. My teacher has emphasized that I'm a good writer, with out-of-the-box perspectives, and a "poetic mind" as she call it (lol). I'm not bragging, just trying to emphasize what my grade could have been if I'd handed it in on time. It's a shame really. :(
Why was the paper late? Because my time management is pitiful. Why? Because maladaptive daydreaming…Continue
this is my first post on this board, i found it via research on the excessive daydreaming topic online. I do not know what to write about, I'm a very private person. so I guess I will just tell you that 'valarie winehouse' is in fact not my real name, LOL. For you music buffs it's amy winehouse reference, she is my favorite singer, troubled as she may be...we ALL have our troubles! Anywoo, I am 30, live in PA all my life, live alone, dog died early last year :(. I…Continue
I've been needing some time off. All the stress of spending all day trying to focus enough to pay attention and do a few lousy math problems was exhausting me. Now I'm bored and broke with nothing I can focus enough to do. I play around on the internet all the time, sometimes working on the site, sometimes just reading any & all news for hours. I've played with a few of Chrome's new apps but I'm too dazed to really get into any of the games.
That's the thing. I've been…Continue
In my daydreams, I always dream that everybody loves me. I'm the most important person in the room. Now I think I understand why:
There's this party tonight I was gonna go to. I got all dressed up and stuff...got all pretty... then I just sat down and almost started crying. Based on my past experiences with parties, I know that if I go to this party that no one, and I mean no one, will want to talk to me. I'm not a "cool" kid. I'm just a random 17 year old girl. I'm just "some girl".…Continue
Today I haven't daydreamed once. Yay for me.
Recently I have found that I'm not the only one who runs, jumps, and bounces of the wall to my daydreams, thank the Lord. I thought that that very factor separated me in a strange way from everyone here. I'm glad it doesn't.
I'm beginning to feel a little bit of withdrawl. I'm tired and a little depressed. Or maybe what's depressing me is my desire to daydream.
I just don't know. But I do know that in every daydream I have…Continue
Hypothesis: I figured this would happen.
Experiment: I was doing fine all day. I took my finals, came home and just chilled.
Data: Then, I became bored. Alas, this lead to my down fall.
Conclusion: Keep yourself constantly busy in the early stages.
*sigh* lets hope this doesnt happen again tomorrow. fml.
