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

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.…

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

Connections to sleep disorders and/or depression

This is just from an email I sent to my doc. I think there are some interesting connections here.

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…

What can I do?

Hi, guys.

I know it seems like answers may be slow in coming. I've been researching this for over 3 years, so BELIEVE me I understand. I really want to help us all in any way I can. I wish I knew how. I'm very new to having a site with members, so please tell me if you'd like me to do anything. Is there something you'd like me to try and add to this site? Anything you'd like me to do at all? I'm really open to suggestion & will look into every idea.

What I am doing is… Continue

Found Someone who Treats MD!

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…
