Where wild minds come to rest

So I'm not really sure why I should write out anything regarding my daydreaming, sometimes it feels like I'm in control, but I am constantly feeling regret for the time I waste deep in my mind versus doing something productive. Gone are the days of daydreaming 6+ hours of my day away, mostly from sheer necessity as I have graduated with a BS degree and hold a job. I supposed my intention and ideal goal for this entry is to express my struggle with daydreaming in a hope that it will help me…

MD affecting individual relationships?

I'm wondering if this daydreaming is negatively affecting my relationship with my boyfriend. When I can't see him, I daydream about him, or a version of him I think. Therefore, I'm satisfying my need to see him by daydreaming, so when I actually do see him, instead of being all excited because I haven't seen him in a week, I act nonchalant because I just daydreamed about him 30 minutes ago. 

I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this same phenomenon. I'm sure someone has, most…

Here is my second story.  It's essentially the story-within-a-story of my last story, Miles.  I didn't really title it since it's just the actual telling of an old story line and there are too many other characters in my head for this to feel like a real story in itself.  Almost none of it's new material.  



            I didn’t think it would end this way.  This wasn’t supposed to happen.  You don’t own me, you bitch.  You’re mine. …

Here is my first foray into fiction in many years.  I've been scared to write about my characters because my world is so vast that it's impossible to pull out a few for a story line.  I wrote 2.  

In this story, I wanted to confront one of the biggest fears Maladaptive…

Finally letting it out after all these years...some weight off my shoulders!

This is what I have been looking for, forever! I have been to 2 or 3 therapist for my depressions and been on maybe atleast 5 antidepressants. I firmly believe I should be on some meds but which one is what I don't know. I never really told anyone this but I think this and depression and anxiety has effected me for what has happened in my childhood. I clearly remember being in my room that I shared with sis, my… Continue

Spring break: creating my own chaos

I had my last final yesterday, so I'm officially in Spring Break.  I'm going through severe anxiety because all the news reports say there's supposed to be a "twin earthquake" to the one in Japan over here, and there's no way my cats and I would survive.  I can't imagine surviving and losing them.  They're such good little souls.  So sweet.  In fact, Grendel's waking up & going to be howling for love in a second.  


Aside from that, I find myself very listless.  I'm not…

It's so amazing to find this support


I read about Wild Minds in the periodical "Scientific American Minds." I can't believe I'm no longer alone!

I have been a deep daydreamer for most of my life. Often I use daydreaming to remove myself from stressful situations. Does that mean I'm checking out? I don't know. But, thanks, everyone for being here.

Synchronicity/The middle of Image Three

When trying to be social with MD, it's easy to imagine a chess game you constantly lose at. If I say this, they'll think/say that.  There's no point in saying this, it's too obvious/useless.  To further the analogy, I have a horrible time beginning the game ; there's just too many damn possibilities, none of which lead to an obvious place.  If I can make it past the awkward start, I have a pretty good time with less pieces on the board.  Strategies become more…

Press Start

I'd spend hours at school with my head down. Not really sleeping, so much as I was thinking about anything and everything else. It's no wonder I didn't really develop socially until I got involved in Drama ~ people who daydream but live it out on stage. I still wasn't exactly in my element ~ I'm still not quite there now. But I feel like the world(s) I make in my mind are just starting to cross over into reality, it's pretty exciting. I'm not sure what role finding Wild Minds will play, but I'd… Continue

I have managed to stop MD

Hello guys,


I just signed up now and wanted to hear your thoughts on my experience. I have experienced MD ever since I can remember. It was very bad especially during high school, as in I daydreamed practically all day and music was definitely a trigger!! I didn't know how to pay attention in classes and was disconnected with the outside world. My fantasy land consisted always of a boyfriend that I had who either existed and I made up his personality since I didn't know him…

"Role models" lol

For my grammar class we had to write a few sentences about our role models and then rewrite them.  Here is what I wrote.  Lol.  I kept cracking  up because I was so bold.  I'm highly impressed with myself for the moment.......not because my writing is genius as this is crap for my grammar class, but because I told the truth and flaunted it.  Here's what I wrote.  I wonder if my prof is thoroughly puzzled right now.



"Reflect upon the mentors or personalities…

I had a weird experience in my cycling exercise class tonight. The instructor seemed to say something like "Let's not talk to ourselves" (?) The music was on pretty loud but I swear that's what she said. She then went on about focusing on our form and what we're doing. I was surprised and scared and I looked right at her, but she wasn't looking at me and neither was anyone in the class so that's good! But it made me very uncomfortable since that's a bad habit I'm REALLY embarrassed about.…

My mom knows everything now :(

The horrible woman tore my room apart one day, literally searching desperately for reasons to punish me. She found my journal that I had written in all summer and for half of this year. It has everything in it. She read it cover to cover. She even made notes in it. There were things about drugs, alcohol, sex, emotions, feelings, private thoughts that only I could know. And there was a lot about daydreaming in there. So I guess she found what she was looking for. 

When I got home from…

Spoke to my therapist today...

So I saw my therapist today and I got up the courage to mention this to her. She had heard of it before! I explained what I found online, and how I knew doctors didn't trust patients who researched their own stuff online, but she said this made a lot of sense. She said she's worked with other people who do this, and that it's quite common, especially in very smart people who get bored very easily. She didn't think there was anything wrong with it, except the part where I don't feel like I'm…

Hi guys,

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile.  I wasn't really sure what to say.  To be honest, I don't want any advice really about how to fix my life or my MD.........unless anyone has any advice for how to get published, which case I'm still interested.  I try to live completely openly and honestly.  Either change it or learn to love it.........and there's a lot of me that I have to make that decision with.  I'm not good at changing stuff, and I'm not really ready to love some of it,…

I found a movie about us!

So in one of my literature classes at college, we watched a movie called "Billy Liar." It's a 1963 British film and I was incredibly surprised and happy to find that it depicts the life of a guy who daydreams so much, he ends up lying constantly and can't really function socially or in relationships. It's actually a very funny and well-made movie and I suggest you all check it out! It's awesome to find something that portrays us, and from such a long time ago. Here's the IMDB link for it:… Continue

There's nothing wrong with it!

Mundane society has condemned dreamers since the beginning of time. 


When I was a kid I lived completely in my own head, and was terrified of the real world. Since then I've been through a lot of school and a lot of life and I've pretty much achieved all of my mundane goals. I'm healthy, in good shape, I'm a physician and academic but I only work part-time so I also travel several months a year. 


I'm not so sure all of this 'success' is all that important. Now…

Hi everyone,

I am brand new to this site. Thanks so much for all of this information. It helps to know that I'm not alone.

I'm very embarrassed about this condition. I've been telling myself that daydreaming wasn't damaging to me but now I realize that the clumsy accidents I've had recently were caused by daydreaming. One thing I realized this weekend (when really trying to overcome this on my own by paying close attention to my thoughts) is that I find it relatively easy to…
