Where wild minds come to rest
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…

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…Continue
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"

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
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.
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.…Continue
There is no logical way to tell when Grendel’s angry. He wiggles, claws, and bites my hand, but if I dare leave him alone he whines like he’s dying a slow, horrible death. So, I end up bent over petting
him behind the trash while he bites my hand & purrs loudly enough to wake
the dead. Meanwhile, Mia climbs on my shoulders and farts. Typical
Hi there. I’ve been saying this thing is like an addiction for a long time now am more convinced than ever that the more we look into it, the more we’ll find connections to sleep problems and addiction. It feels
much like my waking dreams feel. I feel sick at night when I’m wiggling
& moving around, eyes open and still dreaming, and when I…

I sent e-mails to several psychologists/counselors today asking if they had heard of MD, sending them information, and asking if they would be able to help me. One of them responded and said he had heard of it and he has actually treated patients with this before. He believes he could help me and asked if I wanted to schedule an initial interview. Wow! I can hardly believe it.
Still, I am worried because his office is in my hometown and I spend the majority of time living at…Continue
