Sometimes It Helps

Hi, All:

 

I've been handed a really messy plate of life lately. Won't bore you with the details. However, if I didn't have my fantasy daydreams to retreat to for a stress break, I don't know how I would have handled things. Saved my sanity! An oxymoron, I know.

 

Hang in there.

New to This

I just found out about this syndrome today, and I feel like something huge was lifted of my shoulders. There is a reason for my obsessive daydreaming!  I was so relieved, I just wanted to laugh out loud. Not only is there a reason, but there are others like me, which was, if at all possible, even more of a relief.

 

I haven't ever really kept a blog, so if things are getting a bit strange, forgive me. I have to ask you others though, are your fantasies often violent? Like…

really hard time focusing today.  kept drifting off back into my inside world. It's odd really.  Alot of my daydreams focus on me being harmed in some way but people are around to care and listen and protect me.  I could go all Freud and say that this is my way of dealing with my childhood feelings of not having anyone to protect me. Sometimes I feel like such a child.  I'm 38 years old. I need to get the freak over it.  Just venting. and ranting. Continue

fOLLOW oNE cOURSE uNTIL sUCCESS

I was feeling so positive yesterday. Maybe I can blame it on the weather, feeling the sun's rays is exhilarating. I love walking and walking and daydreaming of course. Any excitement at all causes me to daydream. It's sad really that I cant enjoy happy exciting moments in my own life but instead feel this intense need to daydream up a better scenario. Why isn't what is happening in these moments enough for me... if something is bringing me joy in my real life why can I not just live in that…

Score one for honesty!

I took a chance and emailed my prof about my anxiety and told her how bad the smacking is.  I didn’t say it was her that was smacking so much, only “people in class”.  I had mentioned it briefly on the first day, so she would know why if I was flinching or covering my ears.  I told her it’s not a good idea for me to do a presentation with my anxiety, and to my surprise, she understood.  I told her I’d like to do another assignment but would take the grade deduction if necessary.  She…

The World is a Stage

She has everything in its place, the way it should be.

She has everything just so, the way it is supposed to be.

It all looks right.  No problems here.

Everything decorated with holiday cheer.

She walks the right way

She talks the right way

She laughs on queue

The world is a stage

And she is a star

And she always will be

Because she refuses

To let her fans

Her audience

Down.

She will not…

Dark Rooms

Dark rooms with four walls hold secrets and unbarable truths. It's something about the dark, quiet rooms that brings out old painful memories. I know people say what's done in the dark will come to light. But for me it's the opposite what I do in front of others is in the light. But wat I do for myself is in the dark. So it's more of what's done in the light will appear in the dark. For me…

but now I see

I am so happy I found this site.  I have googled the most unspeakable things, haven't we all? Shock Value Education courtesy of the Wondrous World Wide Web. But to google "I pace uncontrollably in my room daydreaming my life away"... even the safety of my own computer, the deletion of history, of cookies... it rarely even crossed my mind. I am a freak. Google has no answers for me. Procrastinate, daydream, cyber surf.. wait I think I am…

Trying hard to care when people make certain noises........

First of all, to those who don't know, I have REALLY bad misophonia, which is extreme hatred of certain sounds.  There are some sounds that are so horrific to me that I'll pound on my ears and cry just to try and drown them out.  They're so bad, and I get so angry and horrified.  I've often wondered if it wouldn't be better just to be deaf and never hear anything rather than hear those sounds ever again.  The more frustrated I get, the more sensitive I am to the sound, so it just snowballs.…

Odd quirks¿

The upside down question mark seems to fit really well with that title...

 

Anyways... This could sort of be considered an extension of my introduction, but I have several things about me that I think or wonder come from my maladaptive daydreaming. And I was wondering if any one else shared that same quirks.

 

-I am utterly terrible at spelling, and writing by hand has always been a bit of a struggle for me, I just really hate doing it and I feel like I would like…

A rather late introduction.

I've been lurking around and posting hear and there for a while. But I never did any kind of formal introduction, so I figured I might as well.

 

My name is Marie. I am currently a junior in high-school, right now it is my dearest ambition to go to art school and become a graphic novel artist. I enjoy manga and anime, and the occasional American cartoon. I like action adventure manga and I have a particular fondness for really old cheesy space animes. And Gundam. I like Gundam…

a night with friends

 

Went to stay at a friend's house last night.  I should point out that my friend is a gay male; always felt more comfortable with gay males.  He knows the general background but doesn't know details of my childhood stuff.  He does not know about this though. Sat around watching It's Always Sunny in Philladelphia, which I had never seen.  Hilarious!  There was four of us and we just sat and watched tv and had a few drinks.  Took my mind off things and had a fairly normal evening.  2…

I finally talked to my mother.

I didn't tell her about my MD. I just told her about my occasional bouts of anxiety and depression. I was saying it in a bit of a joking manner because I figured she wouldn't take me seriously if I asked to be put on Prozac or something. But after I told her, she told me that depression runs in my family and [in a non-sadist manner] I was excited. For two reasons;…

Hello

Well, felt like I've been living in fantasy world too much and too emotional lately so I decided to see if there was anybody out there like me, which I seriously doubted.  WOW!  I feel better that I am not alone.  So I will introduce myself.  I am Stormy, 38 years old, and have lived in fantasy land for as long as I can remember.  I am and have always been able to keep my secret from everyone and live a 'normal' life...on the outside.  I am actually a licensed mental health counselor. Sometimes… Continue

Hi. I'm New. :)

Read about this place in a magazine. So happy to know I'm not alone!!! I have had mass daydreaming problems for as long as I can remember! I constantly find myself thinking about various fictional characters or settings - my own creations or other's - multiple times every day. I've been teased, made fun of, had concern from others, and even been put on medication because of it. But I just can't help it. And yes, like most of you, I do deeply enjoy my daydreams. They're so much better than…

Oldest MD ??

I am begining to suspect, I may be the oldest member currently attached to this Maladaptive Dreamer.   Good news, finally I am leading the curve on something!  It must be a challenge to build an interactive group from a selection of people who by their very defination do not interact with other real human beings, at least not well or on an emotional level.  There are of course exceptions but in general I think that…

1. maladaptive daydreaming is still debated as a diagnosis in psychiatry.

2. the said psychologist has not given any concrete CT, MRI or PET scan proofs to prove the origin of the disorder

3. the disorder is very much present. and it is considered to be an maladaptive form of personality, where by anxiety in a person pushes him to avoid a task at hand by day dreaming.

4. procrastination is a major part of this disorder .

5. as you said, medications like TCA and…
